Learn about new downtown Calgary restaurants and which ones have a patio to get your daily dose of vitamin D!
World-class restaurants, amazing pub-food, street-meat and more! A bite for every taste and budget.
Whether you’re looking for that special anniversary restaurant or just a place to grab a bite with friends and coworkers after work, downtown Calgary has something for everyone.
When summer is in the air, that means it's time for patio season. Many of your favourite restaurants on Stephen Avenue and beyond have dusted off their patio-furniture in preparation for the sunny days ahead. Book your Stampede party, impress a potential client, or just have an after work bite with some co-workers. Patios are normally installed mid-April on Stephen Avenue depending on weather.
