Nellies is one of my favorite breakfast places in Calgary, especially in the summer time. There is nothing better and sitting in the sun and enjoying a late breakfast on a lazy afternoon.
Whenever I’m there I get the toastada (huevos rancheros) – a baked tortilla topped with eggs, tomatoes, peppers, olives, beans, and cheese.
There are a few other vegetarian choices like an eggs benedict and a veggie omelet. The coffee is always fresh and tastes great. The ambiance is eclectic with memorabilia ranging from a candyland game board to dial-tone phones. What more can you ask for when you want a chillax day; after brunch you get some lollipops and can enjoy a walk around 17th ave.
