If there’s one thing I absolutely enjoy about weekends, it’s brunch! I was happy to try out Rocky Mountain Flatbread‘s brunch menu, and here are some highlights. A shout out goes to Roman Pastor for taking these delicious photos.

My fave brunch dish is Eggs Benedict. RMF offers an Eggs Benedict with the choice of having it served with avocado, smoked salmon or ham. I tired it with smoked salmon (which is my go-to choice for pairing with a poached egg smothered in Hollandaise Sauce). I find a perfectly poached egg with a runny yolk as a visual and textural pleasure, so when I broke into the egg with my fork and the yolk was not runny, I was slightly disappointed. Nonetheless, the Eggs Benedict was delicious.

We also tried the Scrambler, which Roman really liked since he prefers scrambled eggs. The contrast between the creaminess of the scrambled eggs, Crimini Mushrooms and avocado and the crunchiness of the toast made for a tasty bite.
I’ve had pizza for breakfast, but now how RMF does it! The Market Breakfast Pizza is the best of both worlds, with two eggs, organic tomato sauce, mozarella, spinach, crimini mushrooms, red peppers, three herb pesto and parmesan. It has all the veggies I love, plus eggs and cheese. If you have a hard time deciding what to eat for brunch, you won’t go wrong choosing this option.

The Yukon Pizza is another yummy choice for brunch. This pizza is quite filling since it is loaded with local potatoes, organic tomato sauce, mozzarella, two eggs, smoked bacon, tomatoes and green onion. If you’re feeling extra hungry, the Yukon Pizza will definitely fill you up!
After brunch RMF’s Co-Founder, Suzanne, gave us a little tour of their microgreen garden out back. She spoke on the process of growing micrgreens and even gave us a taste of their rocket arugula and mustard greens. These were the freshest herbs I’ve ever tried, and they were both peppery in flavour, with the mustard greens having a more prominent, slightly spicier taste.
Roman and I enjoyed our brunch in Kits at Rocky Mountain Flatbread. The impromptu tour of the microgreen garden gave me a better appreciation for what Rocky Mountain Flatbread does: provide delicious food made with locally sourced and organic ingredients. The brunch menu offerings are delicious, and the service is always friendly and hospitable.
