Soup restaurant?

I love good soup and wonder if there is a place in YYC that just does soup??
I ate at a place in Wisconsin that made 5-6 differant types & was only open for lunch, wish there was some place similar here.

Is it only me.....

You are so right..we can go to a pub & get great wings or ribs & a beer for less then we can eat at Mcs.... Our local fish & chip place raised the price from $8.00 to $11. I'll wait for a coupon before I'll go back!!

Calgary - Best Fish and Chips

I've been going to Joey's Urban in the Braeside Mall ( 24th & Braeside Dr). The F&C's are excellant, its not the same as Joey's only. They started out being $8.00 but have jumped to $11., but still a good value.

Bulk buying in Calgary

I found a place in the plaza @ 415 9737 McLeod Tr( across from WalmartI that sells just about everything food related in bulk. Its called Weigh2go, everything I bought(nuts, spices,flour) was very fresh. At last a alternative to the stale junk they sell at SStore and Safeways bulk bins....I was impressed, its good to be able to buy just what you need instead of having to buy pricey jars of spices . You can bring your own containers also.

New in Calgary - can you help with "must dine at" restaurants?

Be sure to try the Polcan market, next to the butcher shop in tha mall on Fairmount, the bacon is great,as well as the weiners. Polish is the language most heard,but they understand English. Try the cabbage rolls and perogies. Be prepared to line up!!

Bulk food in Calgary

No one has mentioned Planet Organic has a wall of bulk foods and I found it very reasonable for organic that is!! There is one store on Elbow Drive s.w. and another in the north.

Radium, Invermere eats?

I'm probably too late for this,but we had dinner at was once the Cafe Europa it is now called something like Cibbabella(sp) and horrors.yes its under new management, it is still serving German type food, but don't even bother going we had 6 in our group andno one was happy with our food, service is surly at best. Why can't they at least be civil?? I would opt for "Old Satzsburg" next time.
