Winner

Una Pizza + Wine

Since it opened more than a decade ago, Una Pizza + Wine on 17th Avenue S.W. has become a home-grown success. Now with three Calgary locations to its name, Una continues to be consistently packed with patrons enjoying delicious pizza, pasta and other dishes like the famous kale Caesar salad. With its reliable service and tasty fare, it’s no surprise that other corners of the city wanted a slice of the action.

Runners-up

OEB Breakfast Co.

With the first location opening in Calgary in 2009, OEB quickly became one of the top places for high-quality breakfast. OEB uses fresh, seasonal ingredients in all its dishes, which range from a variety of morning classics like eggs Benedict to more creative options like the French toast trifle or the nine breakfast poutines that come smothered in brown butter hollandaise.

Craft Beer Market

Since launching on 10th Avenue in Calgary in 2011, Craft Beer Market has remained a hot spot for a casual restaurant and bar experience that pairs locally produced food with a wide selection of craft beers. In fact, both its downtown and Southcentre Mall locations have more than 100 beers on tap, making it the ideal spot to socialize and celebrate.
