I was recently living in Vancouver and was amazed by the number of independently owned restaurants and cafe's to choose from. I'm not saying that everyplace we ate was serving the most amazing food, but as a born and raised Calgarian I am just more accustomed to seeing the large chain's dominate. It was a nice change of pace.
A few places that I fell in love with served fresh bread, homemade sandwiches and the coffee was freshly roasted. There was even a place called Meat & Bread and they serve just that - meat on bread. What would your dream cafe or restaurant serve? What kinds of foods are we missing in Calgary?
