Rustic brunching

Nellie’s appears to be one of those Calgarian institutes for that time between breakfast and lunch. We ate at one of the two found on 17th and felt instantly transported into a very bohemian feeling atmosphere – old rickety floorboards under our feet, a painting of a cow standing in a field split across three separate canvasses and a framed picture of Kramer (from Seinfeld) staring down at us from above our table.

Paying $9 gives you a large plate filled with a 3 egg omelet choc-a-block with a couple of ingredients and accompanied by a generous serving of hash browns and a couple of pieces of toast. Their hash browns are those made out of chunks of potato, heavily spiced and seemingly baked although more likely and perhaps less surprisingly fried. Delicious nevertheless.

I’ve read that Nellie’s gets very busy from seeing the lines firsthand, it’s definitely a popular joint. With other brunch items like pancakes, heuvos rancheros, and a huge breakfast platter with all options, this café offers the diner a pretty unique dining experience.

Don’t expect modern stylish food – this café doesn’t mess about, instead offering down to earth, no fuss homestyle cuisine.
