Delicious!

Everything on the menu looked delicious. Not only vegan but several gluten free dishes as well. I can't wait to go back!

This trendy little place needs to be on your list. Don't let the word 'vegetarian' scare you into thinking plain tofu and beansprouts served by emaciated pasty skinned servers! The decor was warm, trendy and modern. Service was excellent. The cauliflower frittata was loaded with avocado and bursting with flavour. Beach front hot-pot was very tasty with a great blend...

Have eaten here 5 or more times, it's consistently great food. I like to go meatless a couple times a week and this is a great place to try. The "untraditional" breakfast was a great choice. I liked the mushroom and "bacon" side. For dinner try their Thai Pizza and the Rosemary Yam fries.

Wonderful dining experience. Delicious bites to share (recommend the eggplant envelopes, mushroom millefeuille, and vegan sushi) and top flight entrees (vegetarian or vegan the pizza was superb, the "bahn-mi" was delicious and the salad beautiful, filling and flavorful). The pricing was a good value given the quality. Lots of fun mixed drinks and good beers (did not try the wine).... More

Was very busy. Food was good. All was nice and up to standard. Portions could have been leveled better. I'd eat here again, if I was looking for something different.

Vegetarian restaurant don't always have the best reputation for having a menu that is diverse in flavour or creative in options. However, The Coup blows those veggie-hating-nay-sayers right out of the water! For being on one of the busiest small-business streets in Calgary, The Coup really stands out. It took no time at all to get a table, and the... More

Vegetarian meals that have a "twist", quite frequently relying on goat cheese. The menu states you can replace ingredients if you prefer a vegan variant. A bit of a wait to get it and to get your food.

We moved to Calgary just over a year ago and have been trying out restaurants that our family and friends recommend. Our adult children recommended The Coup, but we were not sure at all what to expect, because only vegetarian food was served. From the minute we stepped into the bustling environment, I was quite sure we would be impressed.... More
