Start your Sunday with a romantic brunch at Brew+Bloom, a stunningly decorated downtown café. Choose to dine inside under the branches of the floral installation with over 2000 blooms or relax under the dangling flowers on the patio. Brew+Bloom’s colourful menu features delicious yet nourishing artisanal selections of small bites, entree-sized meals, and fun drinks. Plus, you can find flowers incorporated in almost every menu item. Make sure to also check out their retail section and fresh floral bar where you will find goodies from a handful of local Edmonton vendors and their signature Bloom Jars (which make the perfect gift, hint hint!).
Anchored by the funky, bohemian spirit of Whyte Avenue, historic buildings blend with youthful exuberance to make Old Strathcona one of Edmonton’s trendiest neighbourhoods. The city’s celebrated arts and cultural community makes its home here, as does a plethora of unique local boutiques, one-of-a-kind art galleries, music shops, trendy restaurants, and cafés. It’s a wonderful place for people watching and window shopping!
Nestled in Ritchie Market, Biera ditches traditional pub food for contemporary shared plates, paired with freshly brewed beer by Blind Enthusiasm. The elevated menu is great for impressing a date, while the casual atmosphere is welcoming and inviting. Great food and great company… what could be better?
Grab a front-row seat to the most magnificent show on earth: the Northern Lights. Head to Elk Island National Park with a couple of lawn chairs, a blanket, and a thermos of hot chocolate and watch as the aurora borealis dances overhead. There is nothing more romantic than snuggling up while you stargaze!
