I have been meaning to get myself down to The Makk on 124 Street ever since they opened but I am a procrastinator and never got around to doing it – it even took months to pick up a gift certificate I won from them over twitter. However, I finally managed to go and have a meal at The Makk last week, mainly because my gift certificate was going to expire at the end of May. I really like breakfast/brunch foods, but I normally never wake up early enough to beat the lines, so it was great that The Makk does take reservations (no line!) and A was willing to come down with me. The Makk had just changed their brunch menu, so A and I were fortunate enough to be one of the first few people to sample items on the menu.
When I arrived at The Makk at 11, which is heading more towards lunch than brunch, I was shocked that there was almost no one there. I don’t know if this is reflective of the Edmonton brunching culture (do Edmontonians not like brunch?) or if not many people know The Makk offers a Sunday brunch? Anyways, the first thing on my agenda was coffee and lots of it – throughout our entire meal, my coffee cup was always full, which equals huge points in my book.
