On a cold day, there’s nothing better than a hot bowl of soup. Those who agree will likely be interested in the baked French onion soup from 4th Spot Kitchen & Bar. If the sound of homemade onion broth with bread and mozzarella weren’t tempting enough, 4th Spot takes its version of the dish to the next level with an enticing Parmesan garlic puff pastry on top.

Every Christmas, Good Earth Coffeehouse brings back its gingerbread family cookies, which come in a bag of three. Not only are the cookies soft, chewy and full of ginger flavour, they also support a good cause: one dollar from each bag that’s purchased goes toward supporting local food banks.

Affectionately known as “Shipnog,” Ship & Anchor’s seasonal eggnog is basically a Christmas tradition in Calgary. Until December 31, head to the pub to enjoy a glass in-person ($5 is donated to charity) or get a whole bottle to enjoy at home ($10 is donated to charity).
