Calgary's pizza scene used to be lackluster, but in recent years the competition has really picked up, which really benefits us as the consumer! There are lots of good choices, but here are some faves.
Noble Pie started as a small pizza pop-up within Eighty Eight brewing but quickly took on a life of it's own. This New York style pizza is truly delicious. Expect big floppy slices of heaven. They now have their own digs downtown Calgary, you can't stay in but you can order pick-up or delivery.
Connie and John are famous local chef's who we already know because of Charcut, Charbar and Alley Burger. They've now added pizza to their repertoire, because why not? This pizza stands up the Connie & John's name. It's cheese and greasy in the best way possible. Get it to go from Charbar or pick-up from their new Blush Lane location in Marda Loop.
Who doesn't love tacos!? Hard shell tacos are old news as everyone wants delicate soft shell tacos that are filled with succulent slow cooked meats.
These brunch spots are so much more elevated than a traditional greasy diner experience. Don't forget the mimosa!
Calgarians are lucky because we have multiple coffee options that greatly exceed Starbucks.
Someone recently asked me about Calgary's best bakeries and I had NO IDEA. So I did my best to put together this list. Unfortunately I haven't been to many of them (I'm not much of a morning person). But my goal is to get to them eventually!
