We found ourselves in Calgary in the late afternoon with no lunch plans and our stomachs growling. I recalled that Avenue Calgary magazine featured Black Pig Bistro so we headed there. It was just after 3 PM when we walked through the door and was immediately informed that the kitchen was closed for the break between lunch and dinner. Disappointed, we drove around and spotted Blue Star Diner.
Blue Star Diner is located among some dashing stars such as Black Pig Bistro and Burger 320. Despite the late afternoon visit, there was a line at the door.
Inside, the atmosphere was trendy and modern.
My wife ordered a Mimosa off the drink menu. She thought it tasted decent. I stuck with water.
My wife, inspired by the diner that we were in, wanted a breakfast/brunch dish. Looking over the menu, she chose the Breakfast Flatbread which was described as sweet onions, asparagus, soft chevre, arugula, chopped bacon, fresh chives, and BSD hashbrown potatoes along with 2 sunny farm fresh eggs.
The Breakfast Flatbread arrived beautifully plated with deliciousness in every corner. Overall, the colors and ingredients evoke freshness.
