Whenever I got a chance to stroll along 4th street, I would peek through the window of Suzette Bistro and check how busy it was. As a newly opened restaurant, it has been gaining quite a bit of attention. I constantly heard people around me mentioning about the wonderful French dishes it brought to the table. This summer, I got the chance to meet up with a fellow blogger, Candy from Candy Eats, for brunch. Since neither of us had dined at Suzette before, it made the perfect meet-up spot for food lovers like us!

We began seeing many restaurants with a focus on quality of life and interest in building relationships with local farmers has come to dominate the food marketplace. Click to read more!
Surprisingly, there aren’t a lot of restaurants opened early in the morning on weekends. When I said “early”, I mean 8 am. (Most restaurants in Calgary opens at around 10 or 11 am on Saturdays and Sundays). 2 weeks ago, before our trip to Banff, we were looking for places for a quick breakfast, but discovering that our favorite breakfast spots doesn’t open till a later time dashed our hopes. Only one place opens its door to early birds, Vendome Cafe.
Earlier this year, a new diner, Beltliner opened up on 12th Ave SW, near Victoria Park. Delighted with the addition of a brunch spot in our neighborhood, Kev and I dropped by for brunch soon after its opening.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, the block on 11 Ave SW between 5th and 6th st has completely revamped! I mean, restaurant-wise. Chefbar, Last Best, and now Regrub (burger spelled backward ;)).
