Agree or Disagree: Calgary has a great food scene.


There is nothing better than going out for a great meal. A great breakfast. A great lunch. A great dinner.

And of course, a great dessert.

Now finding the great places for some can be a challenge. Other than the “mainstream” places,some may not know where to go. Or, some may not be able to afford it.

The other factor is what city you are in.  There are cities have great reputations for their food scene. Here’s a link of the top 10 food cities in the world. Spoiler Alert; Vancouver and Montreal are on the list. Calgary is not.

You are probably not surprised.  But what are your thoughts on Calgary’s food scene?  Do we have a good one? Great one? Are there some places that you go to that you would recommend people check out?

As well, in your mind, what makes a great food scene? In your travels around the world, what are some of the things you notice about places with great food?

  1. Hi Kevin,

    Great question! I think the Calgary food scene is alive and well, but I don’t think fine dining is on the scale with Toronto and Montreal. I guess food is such a subjective thing that it really depends on what you’re into.

    For me, I like sharing plates and trying a little bit of everything. The Laurier Lounge was great for that! Also, Model Milk does a family-style dinner on Sundays which is a really cool concept! I’m also a huge brunch fan, so I would recommend OEB, the Coup, and Dinner Deluxe for delicious eggs benny!

    If you are ever in Montreal, you should definitely check out Lea ( it’s great!

    Do you have any favourite restaurants? What kind of food do you like?

  2. What attracts me isn’t just the food…yes, I love good food, but the overall design of the city around it, the architecture, the lighting, the art…all of it. I need a good ‘mood’ setting 😀
