A place to renew. The warm, contemporary décor of Essence invites business and leisure travelers alike to connect over nourishing. Located in the main lobby, Essence serves breakfast and lunch in a setting that is at once peaceful and convivial. Start your day with an egg white and spinach omelet or a fresh fruit smoothie from our Wellness Breakfast Table. Or, join colleagues for a working lunch while enjoying our all-natural turkey BLT or citrus roasted chicken cobb salad.

Whether sitting down for a quiet business meeting or a quick lunch featuring our In & Out lunch items, you’ll enjoy Chef Michael Batke’s diverse menu with a focus on local & seasonal items that showcases Alberta's many flavors.
