The community on the Bow just northeast of downtown hasn’t always been known as Bridgeland, but it’s always been bustling.
Bridgeland is one of Calgary’s oldest inner-city neighbourhoods, yet it retains its close-knit, small-town feel without losing its energy. People have always flocked to the area and the growth isn’t stopping yet: new restaurants and condos continue to spring up in and around where the General Hospital once stood, making it a neighbourhood that’s perfect for experiencing both old charm and new trends.
If you’re a fan of brunch and you haven’t yet ventured to Bridgeland then you don’t know what you’re missing. Diner Deluxe put Edmonton Trail N.E. on the brunch map back in 2001 when it opened. Over time, word got out about the scratch-made, innovative and rather large breakfasts and the line-ups grew increasingly. So it was only a matter of time before someone thought to offer the hungry diners an alternative (and a table right away). Since then, several amazing diners have popped up in the hood and Bridgeland quickly became the go to place for breaky.
