New to Calgary...looking for bread and nice groceries

messier | Aug 9, 2009 09:50 PM

I just moved here from NY, my husband has been working here for a year, but is not adventurous (and has become a regular at Inglewood Pizza!)
Now that I am settled I am desperate for good bread and a source for a nice variety of groceries. I have explored 9th and found Bite, Spolumbos and Nectar, but I miss getting a fresh Pullmans loaf every day. Also I used to frequent a grocer back home who had a different dinner every night, you just called ahead and reserved it, then picked it up at suppertime. They also had a nice selection of jams, fruit, meats and organics. Is there anything like that here? I have a car now and am versed in Googlemaps, so if you could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated!
