5 Breakfast Dishes to Eat on the Go

When you're in a hurry but want something tasty and satisfying in the morning, these spots have you covered.

A good breakfast sandwich is hard to find downtown, so make sure you're ordering yours at Butcher and the Baker.


Everyone needs a good start to the day. For some that means a big, slightly messy breakfast sandwich alongside a giant coffee. For others, it's a fruit-filled muffin and an herbal tea. Here are a few quick grab-and-go ideas on how to start your day off right this month.

Bumpy's Cafe Freshly Baked Muffins

A long time morning favourite in the Beltline, Bumpy's has a long list of quick to-go morning eats, but it's hard to resist the smell of the made-fresh-that-morning muffins. Get there early enough and they might even be still warm from the oven. It's fall now and we need all the warmth we can get.

Butcher and the Baker YYC Ploughman

At only $5, this combination of egg, cheddar, pickled onions and aioli on a sweet brioche bun from Butcher and the Baker in the Bow Valley Square Tower downtown isn't only delicious, it's one hell of a deal.

Gravity Espresso & Wine Bar Yogurt Parfait

If you find yourself near Inglewood in the morning with not much time to spare, then this cafe should be your go-to spot. Opt for a healthy start to your day with a layered yogurt, granola and berry parfait alongside a well-made latte to wake you up.

Grumans Delicatessen Montreal Bagels and Cream Cheese

It's pretty hard to find a good bagel in this city, but you can definitely find tasty, chewy, traditional bagels at Grumans. It also offers catering, making this the perfect downtown option if you need to set-up some food for a morning staff meeting.

Higher Ground Breakfast Burrito

Burritos the perfect one-handed breakfast food to enjoy if you're in a rush. This one is loaded with eggs, cheese, bell peppers and onions and served with salsa and sour cream. Just don't try dipping into the sauces while you're in transit, that could get messy.
