A delight

The food here is amazing. Love the new decor. The breakfast had my teenagers begging me to return and I may have converted a carnivoire or two.

My husband (omnivore) and I (a vegan) were at The Coup on a Thursday night for a date. We arrived around 5:30 and it was just in the nick of time, because it was already close to full, and filled up quickly after we were seated. I called to reserve, but reservations are only made for parties of 7+ is... More

Best vegetarian restaurant by far in Calgary! Never been disappointed. Only downside is how busy it gets and the waits can be too long sometimes. Wish they'd open a second location or bigger space!

We went for dinner to this place as my wife is vegetarian, we came in at the right time, just before 6PM and got sited right away. We got a very friendly server that offered water right away. She was great taking the wine order and very knowledgeable as she responded to our questions right there., after looking at the... More

We visited this on a Sunday which to our disappointment they only serve the breakfast menu on Sundays. Having said this, we still did enjoy our ' lunch'. They had a wonderful salad and the el sombrero (2 scrambled eggs or smoked tofu with seasonal greens, spiced black beans, sundried tomato, red onion, mushroom & avocado, grilled on a sprouted...

I go to the Coup every chance I get and I'm never disappointed. The food is always so delicious and unique. I love trying the new soups and dishes they come up with. The ingredients are always fresh which makes a big impact. Their in-house fresh-pressed juices are also worth a try. And even my meat-eating friends enjoy the food... More

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
