Calgary treats

Can anyone suggest an exceptionally good ice cream shop, bakery or even a chocolate shop near the University of Calgary area. Is there a mall nearby that may have any of these sort of shops.
Thanks for your help.

How close to the university do you need to be? Are you looking to pick something up or eat there?

Market Mall is close to the university and has a Marble Slab (ice cream) and a Purdy's (chocolate) which are good but franchises.

If you go a little farther, you can go to an independent ice cream shop, Leavitt's Ice Cream Shop ( which is a personal favourite of mine.

Near that is the Lazy Loaf and Kettle Café & Bakery which I like as a breakfast/lunch cafe, but wouldn't recommend as a bakery (

The best bakery in Calgary (in my opinion and Calgary's annual "best of" surveys) is the Glamorgan Bakery ( but it's about a 15-20 minute drive from the university in light traffic.

Thanks for your wonderful list of various businesses. I will be at the university for a very short visit and wanted to get some treats as a tiny gift and maybe enjoy some myself too!
Dont have a map handy, but will check with the hotel to see which of these places will be easy to find and convenient.
Thanks again.

The house made ice cream at Diner Deluxe is fabulous. The treats from their bakery were also exceptional.
