On Saturday morning Mike and I spontaneously decided to go for brunch before my shift. We wanted to try a non-franchise restaurant and Mike had a doctor’s appointment in Spruce Grove later that day so we decided to try The Loft at SandyView Farms in Spruce Grove.
It’s hidden away from the main Spruce Grove street, on 135 South Avenue. The main floor of the building is a meat shop. There are samples as soon as you enter which is always wonderful, lol. The whole room actually smells like meat so it definitely gets you hungry.
The Loft is upstairs and it’s such a cozy little restaurant. It just felt warm and inviting as soon as you walked in. It really had a cottage/cabin-in-the-country feel to it and with the windows foggy and snowy white outside, it made me feel like I was on vacation in Banff or something. :)
We were seated instantly, which was great. The menu features your usual breakfast/lunch items. Eggs, bacon and other breakfast classics, sandwiches, wraps and burgers, all advertised as “fresh, homestyle breakfast and lunch.” The prices are great for the frugal spender like me! Not expensive at all really everything was pretty much $9.99!
The Loft boasts that all of their meat is made in the downstairs kitchen of SandyView Farms which is very cool! In fact the food is brought up by a chef from the kitchen, which we thought was amazing because there’s quite a bit of stairs! To keep doing that every couple of minutes while carrying heavy and hot plates would get quite exhausting I imagine (but would be a great workout! Ha).
Mike got the Meat Lovers Pan Scrambler featuring maple-flavoured bacon, breakfast sausage, wild garlic, garlic sausage scrambled with eggs topped with grated cheddar cheese served over seasoned roasted potatoes. Absolutely delicious!
I got the Eggs Benedict featuring two poached eggs with two slices of back bacon served on homemade toasted english muffin and topped with The Loft’s own hollandaise sauce and served with hashbrowns. Also delicious! I love the hashbrowns!!! They were cut thin like potato chips!! Which, if you follow my food antics at all, you will know that I love, lol.
And there’s a closer look of the eggs benedict! Yuuuuummmmy. We loved both of our dishes. We couldn’t finish them though because it was so filling! But I love take-home breakfast leftovers so that will be my dinner tonight, yay!
Our server was friendly, our order came out in a decent amount of time (not lightning fast but not excruciatingly long either), and the delicious food, cheap prices and cozy cottage ambience made for a wonderful brunch date. I definitely recommend The Loft! I’d like to go back as well because I really want to try everything on the menu!
So have you been to The Loft? What did you think!?
