There are so many good things on the menu to eat and drink its almost too easy to order too much. Prices are reasonable and service was attentive. Would definitely recommend. Turn down your hearing aids or put in your ear plugs before you walk in.

We were here in February this year. What an amazing vegan restaurant maybe the best I have been to. The food was just beautiful, fresh and looked fantastic.

After a long plane ride, this was the perfect place for lunch! I had a soup entrée with ramen noodles and fresh herbs. The broth was spicy, seasoned with Sriracha. I also had a side of tofu and almond sauce which was the perfect protein choice. My friend had a beautiful salad with seasoned tofu. All of the soups, salads,... More

I absolutely loved the Coup! Their food is so tasty and delicious that meat eaters won't even realize that there's no meat! The first time I went I had the V.3 Greek Goddess and it was amazing. The second time I went for lunch so unfortunately the Greek Goddess wasn't available (otherwise I totally would've had that again) so I... More

A group of 6 of us visited and had dinner there. Everything was yummy. My noodles dish was tasty and filling and all friends agreed this restaurant was a good choice.

You can tell when someone loves vegetarian cooking or if they are just "going through the motions". The people at the coup are creative, gifted and generally jazzed about making veggie stuff taste, look and smell gorgeous. The atmosphere is a cross between bohemian chic and comfy meet-up spot. The staff are casual, friendly and very attentive. Try one of... More

We were staying in SW Calgary and asked for a recommendation for lunch locally. This one was recommended and we decided to give it a try. This is an "ethical vegetarian restaurant" that majors on gluten-free and ethically sourced dishes. We are not vegetarians ourselves, but the whole experience was a delight. The welcome was friendly, the service well informed... More

We use as much organic & local food, liquor and wine as possible, including all soy products & grains. Menu items are made from scratch & with love. We have a wine & cocktail lounge with weekend DJs, and a restaurant. We recycle all we can & compost our kitchen waste. We purchase food from local farmers, and with minimal packaging; we plant 36 trees a month, and we are 100% wind powered.
