Ack! Can Easter be upon us already? I’m a big fan of making Easter dinner, but Easter Brunch? Not so much. We’ll be out in Canmore for the weekend, and after eating our weight in chocolate, will likely head out for brunch. Here are some of my favourite spots in the Rockies.
Chez Francois has been my standard brunch destination for the past few years. If you’ve never tried their crepes you’re missing out. They have a kid’s menu and will be offering the usual breakfast a la carte menu. They’re also featuring a three course brunch table d’hôte menu for $25 between 11:30am and 2:30pm.
Habitat’s brunch at Grande Rockies Resort runs from 10am till 2pm. It’s only $10.00 for kids and those under 6 years-old eat for free. This resort also has a water slide and Canmore’s funkiest lounge, an ideal setting for happy hour.
There’s a scavenger hunt at Rafter Six Ranch Resort, and you can book a pony or wagon ride to compliment your meal. Brunch runs from 10:30am to 1:30 pm and will set you back $29.95 for adults and $16.95 for kids.
Banff National Park
Both the Easter Bunny and the elusive Easter Elk will be visiting Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts’ mountain lodges – Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, Deer Lodge in Lake Louise and Emerald Lake Lodge in Field, BC – this Easter. All resorts offer brunch and Deer Lodge will feature an Easter Table D’Hote dinner menu as well as a special Easter Sandwich for lunch.
If you’re looking for a scrumptious brunch in a glamorous setting, head to either the The Rimrock Resort Hotel, Fairmont Banff Springs or Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. All resorts offer Easter programming and you can spend the afternoon exploring even if you’re not a guest.
The Bison serves up a hearty brunch, and unique bevvies. Two that I’m keen to try are the Starter Caesar with smoked bison wrapped bocconcini and the Brunch Shaft, made with espresso vodka, fresh espresso, chocolate milk. Hello!
Looking for eggs benny? The Juniper Bistro has a loads of options including duck confit and beef tenderloin available both Easter Sunday and Monday.
And if you’re lucky enough to sleep straight through the morning, head to The Maple Leaf where you can still get your bacon and eggs for lunch.
Have a lovely Easter weekend, everyone! Where are your favourite go-to spots for Brunch in the Rockies?
