“Lovely place in the middle of the most gorgeous park of the City - Prince's Island Park. In the summer - great place for food and drinks on the large patio surrounded by greenery, flowers and birds. In the winter they serve the most unbelievable hot chocolate, which can be enjoyed after a few rounds on skating on the frozen river.”

Pharmacy
“How to describe Luke’s? It’s a general store, grocery and pharmacy for hipsters. Order a macchiato, buy some beans from Bow and Arrow, browse through one of Calgary’s best vinyl collections, buy a gift, go downstairs for food, stationary, and all kinds of stuff that you really do need. There’s even a post office!! ”
