An antique bike mounted on a wooden beam greets guests of Whyte Avenue's restaurant Under the High Wheel.
Located beside Blush Lane Organic Market, the restaurant keeps it local with ingredients from local producers.
My smoked salmon waffle topped with poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce screamed local ingredients. The brunch was good, with its hefty portions and fresh fruit and greens.
In addition to the tasty goods, the restaurant also offers several drinks for that early morning perk.
I suggest arriving early at the restaurant to avoid the lineups since the local shop only sits about 30 people at most. By noon, the lineup is about 10-people long and every seat in the house is taken.
The restaurant also serves lunch and dinner, with other scrumptious treats made with local ingredients.
Prices are a bit steep for brunch so be prepared to shed a few dollars. I do think it is worth it since you are spending it on local, good products supporting the good people of Alberta.
