With the summer months (finally) upon us, it’s basically impossible not to wanna emerge from our homes and check out every restaurant we’ve been adding to our bucket list the past few months. But… money. Wouldn’t it be nice to know you were actually gettin’ money-back while spending it?

Well, team, that’s exactly what you can do with Neo Financial. Not only can you get an average of 4-6% cash back just by spending at the places you already love- it’s completely free! We’re talkin’ a savings account that gets you up to 130x times more than your current bank and a no-fee credit card (guess the founders of SkipTheDishes have pulled through once again!).

So, time to get back to talkin’ about 8 of our favourite places to grab a bite in Calgary and earn money while we do it! 

The Coup 

Delicious plant-based food, locally and ethically sourced ingredients, AND a bangin’ location? The Coup has become a YYC favourite among both vegans and their meatatarian friends and it’s clear why! The food is just really good. After all, who in the heck said that veggie-centric foods had to taste like veggies?

Madison’s 1212 

Two words: nachos and mimosas. At Madison’s 1212 ‘feast’ your eyes on some of the biggest plates of cheese-covered chips in the city, indulge in $1.50 mimosas or… head over there on a Sunday around 10 am, don’t leave till long after 3 pm and enjoy both!

CRAFT Beer Market

A cult-like favourite, CRAFT beer market is the place to go on a Friday or Saturday night – especially during patio season! Have a cold beer, play some rooftop yard games (only when it’s safe to do so again, of course) and just have an overall really great time.
