Here are 8 new restaurants and bars in Calgary that you have to check out sooner rather than later!


Located in the community of Sunnyside, And Some is a custom flower shop and café hybrid that serves waffles, croffles, a variety of lemonade, lattes, and a dose of serotonin. With warm decor, a photo zone, and picture-perfect bites, this place is so much more than a neighborhood cafe. It’s also an experience!

Serving a variety of Japanese street food, Takoyami may already be known to you for being a popular catering and take-out business but after a year of operating out of a home kitchen, they’ve finally opened their very first brick-and-mortar location.

Tradition and beer? At Tail Gunner – Calgary’s newest brewery, quality and comfort come before all else. Serving handhelds, rice bowls, and pub favorites, they also have a small but mighty food menu, and (as expected) a variety of uniquely flavored beers like their cherry vanilla sour and Italian pilsner.
