Weekend brunch: 10am – 2pm

Set in a small cozy dining room just off 99th Street, this little cafe is a great spot to enjoy a nice weekend brunch.  Weather permitting – they also have a small outdoor patio.  I have visited this restaurant for their Sunday family-style dinners in the past (doesn’t appear as they do this anymore), and we decided to give the brunch a try.

I  love cornbread, and Culina has great cornbread.  Served with a sweet blueberry butter, I want some now…   please?

Lots of great sounding choices on their menu, but we decided to try the basics on this go-around.   The Eggs Benedict, is stacked with prosciutto, truffle hollandaise, and garnished with basil.  Side of diced potatoes rounds off this dish.   The server didn’t give any warning of the SPICY ketchup, which unfortunately was an unwelcome surprise – but as-is, everything tasted great!

Culina’s ‘Famous Bacon & Eggs’ is described on the menu as:  slow braised bacon, mushroom frittata, potato hash and toast.  When it arrived – the “bacon” was actually a good sized mound of slow-roasted pulled pork-shoulder,  the “hash” was more of a pan-fried mash, and the “mushroom frittata” was really a simple frittata – topped with a mushroom sauce.

Regardless of the description – everything on the plate tasted great – again, minus the lack of warning for the tongue scorching ketchup.

At $4 for a glass of OJ,  $5 for cornbread,  and $15 each for the entrees, this may be slightly more of a special-occasion destination – although, you may see me there every morning with a cup of their organic coffee and cornbread…  Mmmmm  cornbread.

One thought on “Culina Mill Creek – Edmonton, AB

  1. My first experience there was a decade ago, and only one since then too, so my memories of this place are quite weak. I do recall though that it had a cozy feel to it at night, quite dark inside actually. Their brunch offering looks interesting and definitely more upscale relative to your usual diner. I never quite figured out yet the appeal of that spicy ketchup.
