Last weekend Erik and I headed out for a quick weekend dash to Calgary. Ditching the highway and winding along some old country roads, we spent the better part of our mornings sleeping in, lost in a gigantic mess of a hotel bed. Deluxe. We taste-tested our way through the city, including a fantastic dinner at FARM. And to the surprise of our friends outside of Alberta, we basked in some beautiful sunlight most of the weekend. A few brave people even strolled by sporting t-shirts. A little shoe shopping may have been done and a few giant gulps of wine may have been taken. A venture through the Fred Herzog exhibit at the Glenbow Museum blew our minds and I have since become obsessed with Isabella and Quilt. As the weekend unraveled so did I.
I needed this. I needed this big time.
Old School Emporium. Taking local grocery stores to a whole new, wicked cool level.

OEB. Aka, Over Easy Breakfast was a serious Breakfast joint. And that’s with a capital B. We waited longer than what I would define as acceptable, but the staff was magnificent. They made sure we were happy campers waiting outside by bringing us gifts of warm coffee and banana loaf-goodness. This place comes highly recommended but be prepared because the wait to be seated is quite long. I will say, though, the food was so, so, so good. I can safely tell you the wait is worth the bite.
