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

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.
