Famous for its fondue and Français vibe, the charming Laurier Lounge is a go-to spot for long dinners and late-night lounging. But it’s rising a little earlier these days.
Now open for breakfast, expect nothing less than the same Euro-style experience with fresh coffee from a press, croissants, baguettes, confitures and a sultry French songstress playing overhead.
For a homegrown meal, the Calgary omelette with ham, bacon, vegetables and Emmental cheese is served with potatoes and fruit ($11) and for a dash of French flavours try the Paris omelette with shallots, white wine, garlic, fine herbs, topped with Brie ($12). You’ll also find the sweet stuff like crepes and French toast (from $10) and a selection of eggs benedict served on a croissant, of course (from $9).
