6 restaurants you might not have heard of in the Tri-Region

Tri Region Tourism Dining

We’ve all driven through towns with same old restaurants that you have at home – the plaza even looks the same. Thankfully, the Tri-Region has a number of locally owned and operated restaurants that will get anyone’s mouth watering…

1) The Loft at Sandyview Farms

If you’re looking for a off the beaten path spot to have a little brunch or lunch on the weekend, the Loft in Spruce Grove might just be the place for you and your friends. Located above the Sandyview Farms deli, the Loft carters to the bacon loving brunch crowd. Serving the same meat that it sells in the deli below the Loft is defiantly a little gem tucked away to the west of Edmonton.

The Loft dawns a traditional breakfast menu serving your classic style breakfast of eggs, either thick cut bacon, cottage roll style ham or sausages, home-fries, and toast. The breakfast menu has a little something for everyone’s tastes. The blueberry perogies come as a highly recommend alternative to the traditional breaky and come in servings of either 4 or 6.

The Loft is busy place during the weekends but is worth the wait in line. Head over to their Facebook page to stay up to date on specials in both their deli and restaurant upstairs. See The Loft’s menu >

2) Jack’s Drive-In

6) Basile’s 2 For 1 Pizza

There’s nothing better than dialing up the pizza man on a Friday night and waiting for those steaming hot pies to come to the door. No dishes no hassle, it’s perfect. The only thing that can get in your pizza eating way is the mess of pizza flyers you have on your counter, but not now. Basile’s 2 For 1 Pizza is arguably the best in the area. With ample toppings and a perfect crust this pizza shop should be taking your top spot from now on – plus you always get two pizzas and who could complain about that.
