  • Mack and I stopped into DOSC last week for breakfast. Although their Sober Cat concept has been well received, their breakfast menu seems to be flying under the radar. The $5 breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, cheese and tomato was a good deal, and was especially tasty with a house-made brioche bun. Our coffees were on the house that day, with a special offer from YEG Food Deals available until October 31, 2018.
