Thirsty? Ethiopian coffee shop, AGGÜDO is not only a favourite of many Calgarians, but it’s also where Jon Hamm spent much of his time while filming season 4 of Fargo. According to the cafe, the actor stopped by several times – and even took photos with the staff!

Mentioned in interviews and seen on celebrity Instagram profiles, Model Milk has become a hotspot for actors, musicians and athletes.

Beebop Donuts

A sweet treat in the inner city – Beebop is where it’s at. Pictured smiling above alongside an employee, The Amazing Spiderman’s, Andrew Garfield was seen grabbing some baked goods from this particular shop last fall – though we can’t help but wonder what he ordered. After all, you can tell a lot about a person by what they say their favourite donut is.

Now, we’ll be honest – had you asked us a few years ago if Hudsons was going make this particular list (despite being a fantastic place to catch a game), we probably would have said no – but alas, here we are. Honorary Canadian Paul Rudd was actually spotted several times at Hudson’s Canadian Tap House in Calgary while filming Ghostbusters: Afterlife in Alberta – making one thing incredibly clear – nothing beats a cold beer and some hot wings,
