Back in July a friend took me to Nellie’s Kitchen for brunch, one of the many Nellie’s restaurants in Calgary. I’ve seen mixed reviews of the various Nellie’s locations on Chowhound, so I was wary but was still willing to go for it. The place was almost full, but we managed to snag a seat in their back garden. Normally, I imagine this place is full to the brim with people, but I was in Calgary during the Stampede and I had a feeling that a lot of people hadn’t woken up to their hangovers quite yet. The menu was a fairly standard breakfast menu, and I opted for something that was kind of healthy but also cheese-laden.
My meal was a fairly large huevos rancheros brimming with veggies, and served with salsa, sour cream and fresh fruit on the side. I was so full I was ready to roll out the door.
