Fodor's Expert Review River Cafe

$$$$ Downtown Calgary Brunch Fodor's Choice

An annual recipient of Calgary’s best restaurant award, River Cafe focuses on creating top-tier Canadian food, even going so far as to shun imported kitchen staples like pepper and olive oil. The stroll through Prince’s Island Park will whet your appetite and the beautifully woodsy dining room will get you in the mood for dining. Favorites include the wild boar, buttermilk pancakes with hazelnut whipped cream and dark chocolate, and picnic lunch you can enjoy along the bank of the Bow River.
