Avec Bistro

Bistro at its best, Avec combines classic French fare (think gougeres, foie gras and frites with truffle aioli) with warm service. And, with co-owner and sommelier Jackie Cooke looking after the wine list, you know there will be something worth sipping.

550 11 Ave. S.W., 587-352-0964,


Cassis Bistro

With the sound of French being spoken and a menu of requisite favourites such as beef bourguignon and steak frites, Cassis is an escape from Calgary’s hustle.

105, 2505 17 Ave. S.W., 403-262-0036,


Suzette Bistro

Start with a cup of cider while deciding which of the savoury buckwheat crepes to order. And save
room for the sweet dessert versions, such as the salted butter and caramel. While the Mission location has closed to make way for a French steak house, the latest offering from the team also behind Cassis, you can still find Suzette in Brittania Plaza.

829 49 Ave. S.W., 403-719-3343,
