Hands up if you’ve cruised along 17th Avenue in the last 365 days…pretty much all of y’all. With so much to catch your attention, it’s hard to peg down our favourite shops because honestly, we’re fans of it all! So we’ve teamed up with Cibo 17th to bring you eight places that are perfect to add to your weekend to-do list!



Cibo is proud to have recently launched their brand new Café & Wine Bar! Since its recent face-lift, Cibo has completely renovated the main floor of its two-level building and refreshed the upstairs full-service restaurant. Now open earlier and equipped with a grab & go market and fast counter service, Cibo is serving up Italian inspired breakfast & lunch, with an evening wine bar menu coming soon. Calgarians and Cibo fanatics alike can take meals to go, shop for groceries, or sit back and relax with a premium hot cup of joe or glass of vino.
