An inside look at downtown Calgary’s newest health food spot
Everything you need to know about Calgary’s newest resto, Hart Healthy Foods, is right in the name above the door. Owned and operated by Alex Hart, this health-conscious eatery is family-friendly and super tasty.
Alex is the daughter of the famed WWE Wrestler Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, so you can imagine she knows a thing or two about keeping healthy. Plus, the Hart’s have become massive parts of the Calgary community; founding youth programs, funding and providing a great name to our WHL team, and generally being good people.
Everything on the menu at Hart Healthy Foods is inspired by home-cooked meals, and made with farm-to-table freshness sourced from companies right here in Alberta! They’ve got everything from make-your-own smoothie bowls, to these insanely good waffles… which we’ve been dreaming about since our last visit.
In addition to just generally being delicious, almost everything is also accommodating. There are a ton of vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free options! Best of all, Heart Healthy Foods is in partnership with Mealshare The ‘buy a meal, give a meal’ organization. Just another reason to feel good while you dine.
HHF is located in the core of the new East Village, a place the Hart family have called a second home since well before it was revitalized. Alex’s uncle, B.J. Annis used to own a gym only blocks away from HHF. Now, as you can imagine, considering who her family members are, they’d spend a lot of time there.
Hart Healthy Foods is just as good for takeout as it is for dining in. You can check them out from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm Tuesday to Friday, or 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
We can promise that you’ll eat well, feel well, and that you might even catch a local celebrity. Because, man, do they have friends in high places.
