This place has Great food, bread is excellent soup was not bad they have a wide selection of baked goods, cookies are amazing. It did take the girls awhile to place our order (they seemed very young and unsure what they were doing) but definitely plan on returning.

Every now and then I decide to go to the Lazy Loaf and Kettle instead of the Extreme Bean which is my usual. The Lazy Loaf always seems to be a bit grungy; perhaps it is the retro style, the use of plastic glasses, mismatched furniture, or the handwritten signs. You line up to place your order (the same as... More

At $11.00 for breakfast I was hoping / expecting a little more. More presentation in the food or larger portions. The staff was courteous but not overly friendly. It was an interesting place to have breakfast.

Love love LOVE this Calgary hidden gem! Such a quiet atmosphere, super nice staff, and the best sandwich I've ever had. Super fresh ingredients and amazing desserts too.

My wife convinced me to go to this "Retro Restaurant" for breakfast about 8 months ago. The miss-matched furniture seemed quaint at first and I must admit, the restaurant had a certain allure. Yes the food was good, but very expensive. The bread was exceptional, by the way. The staff taking orders seemed a little inexperienced as they took a... More

I was advised by staff this restaurant is under new management. Food is still is good. A lot has changed, i.e. they no longer carry Kicking Horse Coffee. The decaf is always tepid, bitter and stale as it is not replaced regularly. My friend asked the server if there was any more o fa certain type of coffee and she... More

I am sorry to hear about the bad service you received the other day. We are still the family owned business that started almost 20 years ago. We have changed our coffee to Phil and Sebastien but we were never using kicking horse coffee. If you could please give me more details about the servers that helped you then I... More

The food was fantastic! Too bad the server (who already got her tip- you prepay) couldn't make eye contact or even scrounge up a smile when just dumping our food on our table. Not even taking the time to present the proper dish to the person who ordered it. (The girl with dark hair with a funky undercut- you know... More

We enjoyed a late lunch at this cosy spot in Parkdale. Sandwiches were very generous and eveything was fresh. The homemade soup was delicious & the lunch special - a pesto penne with apple & chicken sausage - were all very good as well. Staff were helpful. All the sweet goodies looked lush and homemade but we didnt have room... More

This bread was so good it even made kraft grape jelly shine. The paticular one I had had sunflower seeds in it, and it came with an omlette. I cant wait to go back there for an egg salad. Also their desserts were HUMUNGOUS and looked delish.
