“So Quaint”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

On a residential street in sunnyside, an unexpected suprise. Love love their spicy tuna melt. But everything there is good. seriously. Made with love and attention. Hate finding my own seating, I actually get take out there alot (call ahead). love their beet and goatcheese side salad. They have doubled their size in the last couple years so seating is easier to come by. Great place for brunch.

“Neighbourhood bright spot”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

My daughters and I recently enjoyed a delightful Sunday brunch at Vendome Cafe. Snagging a seat was the only problem but for good reason! The cafe is warm and inviting with charm, character and sunlight. The staff are efficient and warm-hearted. They hustle without making you feel you need to move along for the next folks. A nice selection of breakfast and lunch items, as well as assorted bakery goods to choose from. We enjoyed eggs benedict, sunny side up eggs and french toast. All hearty portions and 100% delicious! Topped our meal off with assorted coffees, all hot and yummy. It's easy to see why this is an attraction for many and why the line-up snakes out the door. Well worth the wait for!

“A superb spot to hang out.”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

My favourite cafe in Calgary - staff are friendly, free wifi, excellent food. A superb atmosphere different from the usual chain coffee stores - unique and a change from the normal cafes in the Kensington area. The cakes and patisseries are superb and food is alsways fresh. Have been going there off and on for last 3 or 4 years and never encountered any problems - perhaps the only one is that it is too busy on Saturday brunch time!! Hopefully will remain at it current location for many years to come!

“great coffee”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Our friends invited us to a "great coffee spot", which turned out to be the Vendome Cafe. We really enjoyed the atmosphere but best of all, our lattes were excellent. Since we like to seek out places that serve really good coffee, we will definitely return when we are in the area. (We didn't order any food this time, but the meals being served around us looked appetizing.) We also appreciated reading the plaque on the outside wall which explained how the Vendome got its name: an interesting piece of history.

“A nice local cafe”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We went to this restaurant for breakfast and had a very tasty meal. The place is pretty plain and you have to order your meal at the counter but the staff bring it to your table when it is ready. I would go back based on experiences in other restaurants in Calgary.
