Brunch at the Banff Springs Hotel

Ahhh…. Sunday brunch at the Banff Springs Hotel. An institution in Banff. I have partaken a few times over the years, the last being several years ago. The first time was memorable.  It was held upstairs in Rundle Hall, not in the Bow Valley Grill as it is today.  I also remember at least six types of smoked salmon. I’ve also seen the price start at twenty eight dollars  and grow to it’s current fifty something per person. The last time I visited, there was a noticeable decrease in food quality.

Today, reminded me of my early visits. The food is exceptional and so is the variety.  I really enjoyed the cooked vegetables, especially the asparagus wrapped with bacon.  I dislike brussels sprouts, but these roasted ones were delicious. I also sampled some roast lamb and veal. The baked brie with accompanying compote was a delight. Also loved the large dessert selection.  For a buffet, everything was presented on family style platters and arranged beautifully.  For a special occasion, well worth a visit.
