Interesting Experience for a Meat Eater

As a meat eater THE COUP is not a restaurant I would have chosen on my own but I was eating with a pretty hard core vegan so I agreed to go and give it a try. My first impression was that this place has a lot of atmosphere and was cleary in demand as we waited in a pretty... read more

Seemed really hyped up online and was looking forward to it. Had the cajun tempeh stick to start which were ok. For mains we had the falafel quesadillas - far too much pickle and pretty dry. The other main was the burger which was also dry and over pickled. For desserts we had the ice cream sandwiches which were the... More

After a two hour walk along the Elbow River we looped back along 17th Ave Sw looking for brunch. We stopped at The Coup, where we had enjoyed dinner a couple of years ago. This was about 11 AM Sunday morning and the place was hoppin'. There was a good vibe. We were pleased with the upgraded, upscale décor resulting... More

Have been with my wife many times. The food is so fantastic! Good portion sizes. The service is as good as any service anywhere. Have found it a little crowded. If you don't mind it a little crowded. This is the place to be.

I came here for a lunch date on a week day on a whim and I wasn't disappointed. The staff proudly told me their coffee and barista are both the best in the city (it was really good so I presently won't refute) I arrived at 11:55 with choice for my seating and by 12:05 the place was packed. The... More

It's my first time writing a review about a restaurant because I'm not the type to do this. But this time I really felt the need to do so as I wanted to share how terrible my experience was. I had a waffle and it had a choice of a savory or sweet toppings. I chose to go with the... More

I'm very sorry the waffles were to sour, I have looked into the recipe and have talked to the prep team. We have added more sweetness to the recipe and we hope this has resolved the problem. We wanted to showcase the beautiful fresh BC cherries but if it is so sour that it is inedible we obviously missed the... More

I had brunch here last year and just recently came for lunch. The food is very flavourful and after eating more than enough I left feeling great. I'm a sucker for healthy feel good food. There is of course no meat served but still a great spot. Good atmosphere and great drink selection.

You can stop in for as little as a home made organic cocktail, or stay for three organic courses- this place is awesome. A more hipster vibe, the food is fresh and presentation is creative and just the right amount. Great place for a catch up with friends!

Great little vegetarian restaurant on the main trendy boulevard in Calgary. We sat on the patio so were able to enjoy the local foot traffic. The four of us enjoyed lovely salads and pizza with excellent cold craft beers. The salads were loaded with fresh greens. The service was attentive but not obtrusive, even helped one of our party who... More
