My daughter loves this place and was anxious for me to try it out during my recent visit to Calgary, So, after enjoying a morning touring art galleries on 12th Avenue, we set off for The Coup. This organic vegetarian restaurant was hopping at noon! Its inviting atmosphere and friendly greetings from staff settled us in for a what was... More

My family and I ate here twice within the last six days and found our meals exceptionally flavourful. Whether you are a vegetarian or not, this is a restaurant not to miss; three of us are not vegetarians, our daughter is. In fact, I could eat at this restaurant every night. My husband ordered the Thai piazza on both visits... More

76 reviews and not often I have a negative one. We were visiting from out of town and the Coup was recommended to us for lunch. Service was a little slow, but it was busy and our server was very friendly. We ordered the satay and two cheese paninis. The satay was great. One of the paninis was fine but... More

This was, by far, the best breakfast dish (el sombrero) I have had yet to date. This dish was so full of flavour you didn’t even need the sauces that accompanied it. This place was very friendly and inviting and we didn’t wait very long for our food either; considering it was Saturday afternoon and relatively full. I perused the... More

Went there 2 weeks ago with my vegetarian friend. I like the atmosphere there. Friendly staff and good food. They give you free water. A bit pricey for me, but maybe it is located at downtown.

I'm a vegetarian and have been to quite a few vegetarian restaurants over the years... The vibe of this one just feels so... More

I really enjoyed this wonderful restaurant- I was amazed to learn they had been in business for nine years already. I had the stir fry on quinoa cooked with a sesame based sauce. For dessert the four of us shared a lemon square. The atmosphere is upbeat and warm. Service may be a tad slow but once our order was... More

Was walking by, looking for a late lunch, when I spotted this place. I'm not a vegetarian, but I enjoy good vegetarian food, so I asked for a recommendation from the menu. The server suggested I get the falafel quesadillas with the soup of the day (a broccoli something...) The broccoli soup was good, but maybe needed something to give... More

We used it as a tapas restaurant for our date night and loved it! Best; Beet salad! Funky and delicious Yam (?) fries: delicious and the sauce YUM! but they looked like it was sweet potatoes. The sushi was alright and the dragon bowl (with green curry) was good but missed a bit of flavour. If you want to share... More
