Thomsons Restaurant, located at the lobby level of Hyatt Regency Calgary, offers contemporary Canadian cuisine with fresh products sourced from local producers with sustainable focus. Our inspired menu made by the awesome culinary team updates every week which showcases their free range creativity while supporting more than a dozen local producers and our bee hive on the hotel roof. Right at the heart of Downtown Calgary, the window oversees the historic Stephen Avenue Walk. It provides classic and comfy setting with fantastic service for diners.
To celebrate my partner’s birthday, the family chose to visit Thomsons for their very first time. We came in without reservation due to last minute decision for Sunday brunch buffet; we were seated in Sandstone Lounge right beside desserts (the kids were eyeing on them even before we sat down). We were first served with choices of fresh juice, coffee and tea which were included in the brunch rate.
Brunch buffet is the extension of Thomsons’ breakfast buffet with assorted lunch-ish goodies to choose from. On top of breakfast sausage, smoked Canadian bacon, chef attended omelette station (choice of ingredients), oatmeal, cereal, toasts and delicious pastries, there were cream of corn, nicely arranged charcuterie tray with pickled vegetables, chilled fresh seafood, and even Chinese dimsum! Fresh waffles, pancakes and egg benedicts made to order were the highlights for everyone.
Our birthday boy said the eggs benedict certainly impressed him with the perfectly-poached eggs and tasty creamy hollandaise sauce made-in-house. The kids enjoyed having many food selections and the options to choose what they love to eat!
Every server was professionally friendly to my family while asking constantly if we are enjoying or having enough food. Thank you, Nikki, Joseph and Linda, for making everyone feels so special! I’d absolutely recommend to others and come back for future special occasions.
After the renovation in 2013, the large scale of photography inside Sandstone Lounge and Thomsons Restaurant as the interior theme presents the unique Western-Calgarian-like culture. Come by on Sunday for their specials: a glass of Caesar or Mimosa for $5!
