Good vibes and good

I went twice to Madison’s. I preferred the brunch to the vegan nachos, which needed more kale in my opinion. The tofu Benny was great. Lots of options, and sometimes non-vegan options can be made vegan. Good house made hot sauces as well, but check the labels because some have honey.

Pros: Brunch options, House made hot sauce, Lots of vegan options

Cons: More kale needed on nachos

Don't come here

Horrible service. Ignoring us when we were waving the server down. We think it's a race thing as we were the only POCs, and the servers are white. They didn't ignore other people.

No physical menu. Ignored us when we asked for WiFi password. Requires Canadian SIM to order, which we don't have as we are travelling. Difficult to use for my mother who isn't technological literate.

Also asks for cover charge for musician... $5 per person. Even when you are sitting inside.

Food was ok. Not particularly good.

Should have left but we were tired and no other option available. Avoid here.

Nice to share with non vegans

Hard to find a place that has good options for meat eaters and vegans together. Lots of vegan options for popular dishes. Had the mushroom nachos delish!

Pros: Tasty vegan options

Cons: Parking on the street but free after 6 pm

Vegan nachos

I love the yam and kale nachos, the sauce they drizzle over them is garlicky and delicious! We once asked for some of the sauce to go at the end of the meal because it was so good!

Good Breakfast

This restaurant is a good place to get an (non)eggy breakfast. I had the vegan benny and I found that hollandaise didn’t have that umami punch that genuine egg typically has but it is still pretty tasty. The tofu scramble was nicely seasoned. The Jackfruit was extremely tender and once again well seasoned. Potatoes were very middle of the road compared to most restaurants in its price range.

Excellent place. 5/5 in my opinion!

This place is a must if you are in Calgary. I went across the city just to try their Craft Nachos and they were excellent. The staff took my dietary restrictions very seriously and my order was perfect. I will come back here again.

Pros: Service , Food, Unique and delicious beverages

Wonderful late night option

This was one of the few place that was open where everywhere else seemed to be closed since it was so late in the night. So glad we found this gem. The food was very filling and delicious! Love the poke bowl 💕

Fantastic Vegan and Vegetarian Options

I love this place! Very unique concept and tons of options. They have a specific vegan nacho dish but many of the other nacho dishes can be made vegan. Lots of options for the poke bowls as well
