Calgary’s best comfort food spots

Calgary's best comfort food spots

Save the salads for the springtime! Right now, we’re craving hearty meals with a side of old-school nostalgia. Whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, these are the Calgary eateries on our carbs, cheese and bacon radar.

For breakfast

Calgary's best comfort food spots There are plenty of drool-worthy options at Diner Deluxe (804 Edmonton Tr. NE) but the meatloaf hash is what will get us out of bed on a freezing Sunday morning. It’s meatloaf. It’s wrapped in bacon. And breakfast poutine is a side option. Resistance, as they say, is futile.

For lunch

Calgary's best comfort food spots The only thing that can make a great meal even greater is the company it’s shared it with. Agree? Then you’ll love Pip’s Board Game Café (2015-33 Ave. SW), Calgary’s first board game restaurant. Mac ‘n’ Cheese and Monopoly FTW!

For dinner

Calgary’s best comfort food spots Get cozy at Posto Pizzeria and Bar (1014 8 St. SW), where a freshly tossed, wood oven baked number, quattro pizza (sausage, salami, smoked pancetta, calabrese) will cure whatever ails you. Craving umami? Snag a seat at Menyatai (24 12 St. NW;) and pick your poison: ramen, udon or donburi.

For a sweet treat

Calgary’s best comfort food spots Food fads will come and go but cupcakes will always have a special place in our hearts. When the mood for a perfectly moist cake swirled with rich buttercream strikes, we head straight to one of Crave’s four Calgary locations. #sorrynotsorry
