My sisters and I went to the Doves Nest in the Glenmore Landing, a strip mall in SW Calgary. It's a bit unexpected to find a tea room in a strip mall, but it's a wonderful surprise. We ordered herbal teas to go with our sandwiches, scones, and sweets, and they kept filling up our teapots as often as we'd... More

We made our regular visit to the Dove's Nest this last week of sandwiches and tea. We decided not to have the full High Tea this time as neither of us were hungry enough to eat all of that offering. The sandwiches were freshly made and delicious, the tea, hot and fragrant. We ended our meal with a scone with... More

My mum treated my girls (23 & 15) and me to high tea, it was a lovely experience. You may look at the platters when they first come out and think it's not much especially for the price but everything is made fresh to order and made in house. Believe me you are stuffed when finished....if you can finish! The... More

I was taken to Dove's Nest by my best friend for my birthday today for High Afternoon Tea. I must say after having high teas in London, England and several other places, I was extremely disappointed with the food and service. The food was of low standard and I could have made better tasting food at home. I was amazed... More

Food is always terrific but don't expect fast or attentive service. Kids meal is very pricey . For a grilled cheese at a fancy place I would expect real cheddar , not processed cheese at $16.95

My sisters and I were delighted to discover this restaurant in the city. It is located in the Glenmore Landing strip mall in the SW quadrant of Calgary, not the location that you would expect to find something like this. The decor is simple in that kind of way that instantly begins to help you to begin to unwind from... More

I just came back from lunch at this place. I booked reservations in advance, explaining that we would be ordering high tea. When we arrived, the lady said, "And you're having the high tea?", so it was definitely written into the book. After waiting an HOUR for what amounts to their selection of sandwiches and pastries (no special ordering), we... More

My dear friend took me this morning for a cup of tea and a scone at the Dove's Nest. We were there at 10:30 and it was quiet, but by noon, it was fully booked. I would strongly recommend making reservations. I had some tea and one of their freshly baked scones. You can have the scone come "with the... More

Normally we head to the Banff Springs for tea on New Years Day but we had to stay in town this year and Dove's Nest is a close second :) They cater nicely to kids, they have a great selection of tea, and the gluten-free goodies are the best.
