IKEA Restaurant – Calgary, Alberta

This morning, we went to IKEA, we needed to pick some stuff up from IKEA, and made a morning out of it! 🙂 Of course, we started by arriving 10ish, just in time for breakfast!! Breakfast at IKEA has always been affordable, and it’s not bad for what you’re getting, and the amount you’re receiving!

We of course have the $1 breakfast meal, and add things to it!! The breakfast includes Scrambled eggs, sausages, and home fries. The eggs are always a little funny, but it’s pretty good with the remedy for all weird food — ketchup! I must say, I really enjoy the home fries (potato chucks), and for me, instead of ketchup, I like the maple syrup that goes with pancakes! I know, it’s sounds funny… but, my husband likes it with Ranch dressing… so, you decide who is weirder!

Today, my addition thing that I had with my $1 breakfast was Organic crepes stuffed with spinach and cheese. It looked a little funny, but it tasted good. My husband had Bacon and French Toast.

The French toast was interesting… it was dense, but it made up for it as it was a Cinnamon Toast! 🙂 If you’re going for Breakfast, be sure to be there before 11AM!

CafĂ© Vettro – Las Vegas, Nevada

We had breakfast at Café Vettro one wonderful morning while we were in Las Vegas. Café Vettro serves my favorite dishes in a casual and contemporary environment.

I love smoked salmon, on bagel, so it’s no surprise I ate that. I like their modern take on this classic dish.

We also had an order of their Sausage and Biscuits and this was pretty classic. The food here is absolutely amazing!

The view was quite interesting, as we looked out towards the roads leading to the lobby. It’s not ugly, but it was interesting! The environment is really calming with the colours and the waterfalls down the wall. Garden areas and natural elements provide relaxing dining settings while terraced seating and floor-to-ceiling windows allow for stunning views at any hour.

The prices wasn’t too bad at all, we were expecting a lot higher price tag to go with a 5-star resort… the lovely ARIA has put reasonable prices at all their restaurants, bars and lounges. I can’t say that they’re “good” in price, but I will say the food was good to make up for it!

Breakfast at Cora’s – Calgary, Alberta

One of my favorite sit down breakfast places would be Cora’s, and we got to go to the one in the South on 130th Avenue in Calgary on March 19th, 2011.  Food was great, prices was great — with large portions!!

I ordered their Raspberry 4 Lucie and I think it’s very fitting. I used to get called Lucy a lot too… well, oddly I still do. Not sure why! Anyway, this breakfast was a thin crepe filled with raspberries and custard with cream cheese! It was amazing and not too sweet at all!

The other breakfast that we ordered was their Western-Cheddar crĂŞpomelette which was a savoury crepe with ham, onions, red and green peppers, tomatoes, green onions and Cheddar cheese, covered in hollandaise sauce, served with potatoes and toast! Told you this was a big breakfast!

Overall, it was a fantastic time here. Always expect a long wait unless you’re very early!
