Less than 24 hours in Calgary

4 pm

Settle in with a latte at Cafe Gravity + Wine Bar in Inglewood. I first discovered Inglewood as my best friends brother lives there. It’s such a cute and trendy little spot with seriously good coffee just minutes from downtown.

5 pm

Check into hotel. Typically we stay at the Westin when in Calgary as it is just close to everything and the service is always the same.

7 pm

Mercato on 4th street. If you like Italian food then you are in for a real treat! Request to sit at the bar top so you can watch all that happens in the kitchen. It makes the experience!

Usually they have a special on and if you’re lucky it will include truffles! This truffle parmesan risotto will have your tastebuds tingling.

Also their tomatoes are imported from Sicily making the Caprese salad a must try. The restaurant is definitely share style, whether you are two people or with a group prepare to eat!

9 pm

Drive around and look at Christmas lights. Since it is Christmas time we decided to go for a little drive to check out the Christmas light displays at Spruce Gardens.

10 pm

Relax in hotel.. blog.. or whatever you want to do.

9:30 am

Breakfast at oeb on 4th street. Ask for the Double Trouble! Fried egg on brioche bread with cheddar cheese + heirloom tomatoes with chipotle aioli, all topped with arugula and shredded manchego cheese.
