Best Hotel Restaurant Breakfasts

Long gone are the days of the subpar hotel continental breakfast – these hotels do breakfast right.

Carriage House Inn

This unassuming hotel on Macleod Trail serves breakfast that’s anything but average, thanks to the excellent in-house kosher bakery. The cinnamon challah French toast with a vanilla-scented apple and raisin compote is a standout, and on the savoury side, there’s bacon or grilled Italian sausage with peppers, onions and scrambled eggs.

Hotel Arts/Yellow Door Bistro

If you haven’t been to Hotel Arts for breakfast yet, you are missing out. The morning buffet is just as lavish and fulfilling on a Monday as it is on a bustling Saturday. You’ll find items like mushroom grits and poached eggs, feature pancakes or house-made granola yogurt parfaits with compressed fruit served in brightly coloured Le Creuset cassolettes.

Kensington Riverside Inn/Chef’s Table 

Although this restaurant has won numerous accolades since it opened seven years ago, its chef-driven breakfast (and weekend brunch) remains a well-kept secret in Calgary. You’ll find elevated takes on regular morning suspects, like house-cured B.C. salmon, both smoked and candied, on a bagel with shaved red onion, capers and wasabi cream cheese.

One18 Empire

When the downtown Marriott received a hefty facelift last year, the changes brought with it a new contemporary restaurant that impresses from breakfast all the way through to evening. The daily breakfast buffet is full of fresh goodness like house-cured meats, pastries, made-to-order omelettes and lots more.
