Breakfast
  • Great for brunch
  • Charming
  • Neighbourhood gem
A cozy brunch spot, with a focus on breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes complete with coffee and cocktails. The menu, created by well-known Calgary chef, Andrea Harling, features traditional breakfast favourites like the Rooster Breakfast (2 eggs, maple sausage, rooster potatoes and multigrain toast) and a Smoked Salmon Benny along with non-traditional offerings such as a Coconut Shakshuka featuring poached eggs, tomato coconut chickpea stew with herb tahini. With a new take on "comfort food", Chef Andrea Harling's menu focuses on family and making memories around food, by using her grandmothers Cheese Biscuits recipe and grandfathers Harling breakfast sausage recipe, The Sweatered Hen is a family affair.

    No liquor license. Service was slow with an excuse everytime they came by the table. Dont order the breakfast biscuits, what a frustrating experience that is. Terrible execution on that item, needs to be re-engineered. Hope they figure it out or they are gonna end up like V burger.

    I’m not even a brunch person and yet I’ve loved both things I ate both times I’ve gone there. AND I still have a third pick waiting for next time. I’ll also say - I love a brunch mimosa - and almost considered switching my most recent reso to somewhere else, since they’re still waiting on their liquor license (and my bestie and I really needed a drink!). But I decided to stick with it because my first experience/meal was SO delicious! And I definitely do not regret my choice!
    The Sweatered HenResponded on July 6, 2024
    Hi Robbin, Thank you for the lovely review! We are so happy you've enjoyed your two dining experiences with us, and that us waiting on our liquor license didn't deter you from coming back again this time! We will have it soon, and hope to see you again for a brunch mimosa! Love, TSH

    An excellent choice for breakfast. The food was delicious. You should offer a Seniors menu as the servings are so big.

    The roasted strawberry French toast was amazing. Get a side of bacon with it to balance the sweet.
