Under the High Wheel

Unless you get to this Whyte Avenue staple right when the doors open, you’re going to wait in line. And, once you get seated, you’re not going to get your food in short order. The restaurant staff are up-front about the fact that it might take a bit before the food gets to your table. But it’s Sunday brunch, and you can’t always be in a rush, right? If you go to Under the High Wheel, you aren’t going there because you’re in a hurry; you’re going there to enjoy some fantastic brunch fare that isn’t just slapped together. While many spots now offer chicken and waffles, our judges pointed to the brined, crispy chicken that’s served at Under the High Wheel, with a maple-tinged Hollandaise. Look for traditional British favourites like bangers and mash, while crepes are available with homemade savoury or sweet fillings, made from locally sourced produce. -Steven Sandor

Caf Linnea

While it has recently started offering dinner as well, Caf Linnea is absolutely made for brunch. The space is filled with sunlight and has a mid-century modern feel with a Scandinavian twist. There are copper accents, plenty of greenery and a small but intriguing menu. Opt for a savoury buckwheat galette, or, if you just want a bite to accompany your cappuccino, the egg and toast soldiers. -Adrianna MacPherson

Whether you want to enjoy a leisurely group brunch or grab a solo bite before strolling 124th Street on the weekend, Canteen will more than satisfy. Start the morning with coffee from Ace Roasters then dig into some comfort food with a southern twist. Year after year it remains a popular spot, so make a reservation if you can. -Breanna Mroczek
