The Coup specializes in vegetarian cuisine and can accommodate gluten free and vegan dinners. They seasonally change their menu which makes it difficult to pick a favorite but the last time I was there I had the dish, giant panda, so delicious. They never disappoint.

Ice cream is my favourite thing, followed by roasted marshmallows. I absolutely love their "Happy Camper" sundae! You can purchase single scoop cones of ice cream, or take away pints of their most popular flavours.

Where else can you get a hot dog slathered in peanut butter, jelly and captain crunch? Odd combinations but if you have a curious appetite, I'd say try it!

This is one of Calgary's finest coffee stories. Brothers who grew up in the coffee business and eventually started there own. The Chai Tea latte is my absolute favorite (yes, I know it's not coffee) You will not be disappointed in this trendy location.
