I rarely take the time to write a negative review but as a local vegan, I have to say I am extremely disappointed with the Coup. I've been to the Coup numerous times over the last couple years and after the last couple visits I can confidently say I'll never be going back. Right now it's poutine week and I... More

Stumbled upon the coup while searching for a good vegetarian restaurant. We were so happy with the experience that we returned two days later while passing through the city. Certainly highly recommend for anyone looking for local high quality food.

The renovated Coup has only improved its quality and menu over time. I've been going there since it opened and from the drinks to the desserts, to the service and atmosphere it is always a treat to eat there...and I am not even vegetarian.

I've been wanting to try this place out for a while now. The Atmosphere is great (has a real hipster vibe) and service was good. Unfortunately, I wasn't overwhelmed by the food. My girlfriend and I had the sushi and eggplant sleeping bags to start. The sushi was just ok and I found the pesto in the eggplant dish to... More

I'm writing this from our table. The one we've been sitting at for an hour waiting for two orders of waffles. Three other tables who arrived after have been served. Rather than apologizing or explaining the delay, I had to ask our server for my first coffee refill in a half hour and ask the status of our food. We... More

I went to The Coup with a group of 6 girlfriends. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very much impressed. First off, parking is great. There is a large parking area just behind the building. And the location on 17th Ave SW has a great vibe. We went on a Wednesday and there was a line up,... More

I had the bun-me, a veggie Vietnamese baguette style sandwich with the baked yam fries. It was good - spicy kimchi! The gin cocktail I had (Double Bath Bash or something of that ilk) was awesome. Mostly, I loved the vibe. The service was excellent and super friendly, the music was good, and I just felt really happy here, even... More

if you are looking for a delicious meal in Calgary, this restaurant is by far on of the best! It is veg and they will even accommodate vegan. The flavours are so amazing that you don't even know the meat is missing. They use fresh ingredients in their menu items and drinks. The Thai pizza is so yummy - everything... More
