I cannot understand how anyone could call this hole-in-the-wall "restaurant" the best in Calgary. The place is run down with outdated thrift shop decor. Call that "funky" if you like, I call it outdated & uncomfortable. The place is tiny with as many tables stuffed into it as they can get. Basically eating in someone elses face. Dusty & dirty as well.
The wait is also ridiculous. 2.5 hours. Really? I expected fabulous food like I had heard about, so I decided to have a couple drinks & appetizers at "The Meet". Meh. Old, run down furniture & wait staff drying glasses with an old tattered cloth while handling glass all over is really not my speed.
Once we finally had our tables in "The Coup" (with no apologies for the extra long wait), we ordered our meals. Never again. There was nothing about my meal that was great or even what I would call good & my partner didn't even finish his - thought it was gross. Completely unimpressed. We make much better food at home. And to think the owners acted like they were doing us a favour to finally seat us. Lol.
I've been to many great vegan/vegetarian restaurants (I travel for work) & I can honestly say this place would not survive elsewhere. They should consider themselves lucky that they are in Calgary. Seriously.
Cons: Pretty much everything
