When it comes to cocktail bars, our city is practically spoiled, but who’s complaining? This summer alone, we’ve seen some incredible places make their debut but none have been as ‘sweet’ as this! After months of anticipation, Calgary’s Candy Shop Cafe opens today and you’re going to want to make a reservation ASAP!

Serving champagne, tarts, cakes, milkshakes, a selection of savoury dinner items and more, this 17th Avenue spot will be the tastiest afternoon stop and the ultimate ‘besties night out’ destination.

From their peanut butter and jelly old-fashioned to the dessert sushi platter, their entire menu is incredibly indulgent; and honestly, (if we were asked) we couldn’t have suggested a better time to launch than right now.
