Long weekend day-trip eating (Cgy)

alau2 | Feb 10, 2008 04:16 PM

Hi Chowhounders,
My fiance and I were considering spending the long weekend in Lake Louise or Banff but by the time we got around to booking hotels, everything was full or ridiculously expensive. So I've proposed a weekend of day-trip eating.

This means going to hidden gems (ie, small independent places with amazing food) within a 60-km drive of downtown Calgary.

I've thrown Turner Valley's Route 40 Soup Company on the list already.

I was pondering Crazyweed in Canmore until my girlfriend had a horrendous experience there with service last weekend (ignored their reservation, gave them a table near bathroom, did not offer to take their coats - from a pregnant lady no less, no service for 25 minutes, server poured wine in her water glass, then brought new glass without replacing spent wine etc. )

Anyway, didn't mean to turn this into a Crazyweed thread.

So... I'm looking to all of you for other suggestions for our little long weekend activity. Thanks!
