Food Tours

Lethbridge is located along Canada’s Premiere Food Corridor, making it home to world-class food producers and growers. This has led to a rich culinary scene fueled by delicious local flavour.

Plan your perfect food tour based on whether you feel like walking or driving, with stops at the city’s favourite restaurants like Water Tower Grill and Bar and Telegraph Taphouse.

Farm-To-Table Restaurants

If you’re looking for a real farm-to-table experience, you can learn more about the people that grow the food you eat. Learn about the producers who participate in the Southern Alberta food tours, and see which restaurants source their produce from them. 

Some local favourites are the Italian Table along with the previously mentioned Water Tower Grill and Bar and Telegraph Taphouse. Local breweries Spectrum Ale Works and Theoretically Brewing also make the list. A refreshing local brew? That sounds pretty good to us!
