“My favorite place to eat in Okotoks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

I have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing, and the people who work there are very knowledgeable. They also had very great gluten free options! I am always very impressed eating here.

“Great food but you certainly pay for it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I can't complain about the food, but the cost overcomes my desire to come back to eat it again. There is a point of diminishing returns for any restaurant that serves high quality fare and that point is obviously a moving scale for each individual. In my experience; I've paid highly for quality fare and been happy to return for the same experience. In the Heartland case, I'm just not ready to return.

The building on the other hand is worth sitting in and enjoying. A beautifully renovated church provides a unique atmosphere for dining.

A side note: the Heartland Cafe used to be in Calgary; Sunnyside. As students we used to go there for the coffee and nutra-cookies (which they don't make any more), even then the food was a cut above but students could afford it...

“Heartland Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

A wonderful spot for lunch in Old Towne Okotoks. The Heartland is found in one of Okotoks historic buildings and serves a selection of delicious soups, salads, homemade breads, a variety of luncheon items and desserts, all freshly prepared from (to the extent possible) local produce and meats. The Heartland is busy so either reserve or get there early.
