There’s been plenty of action in Inglewood’s dining scene lately with the arrival of several new cafés and restaurants. Here’s a look at a few of the spots that you can now visit.


Abbey’s Creations

Halo halo, creamy avocado, raspberry cheesecake — these are just some of the delicious ice cream flavours you can get at Abbey’s Creations’ new location in Inglewood. The company now has six locations across Calgary and Cochrane.

Business & Pleasure

Just a few weeks after Neighbour Coffee opened in Inglewood, a separate new eatery called Business & Pleasure (owned by the same team as the coffee shop) opened its doors as well. This new snack bar is located behind Neighbour, with an entrance that faces the building’s back alley. Business & Pleasure offers a warm and intimate dining experience, with dishes like shrimp ceviche, pork gyoza and slow roasted pork belly with piquillo pepper jam and kewpie mayo on the menu. This spot takes its cocktails seriously, too, with creative options like the Velvet Elvis, which features Tanqueray gin, lemongrass syrup, lemon juice, lime leaf bitters, B&P Tonic and egg whites.

Inglewood’s newest eatery brings a colourful spin on North American diners to the neighbourhood. Step inside Bussin’s bright pink interior to order creative wraps, smashed beef burgers, chicken burgers or an alternative burger that features either a veggie patty, crispy wild-caught cod or halloumi cheese. If you’re craving something sweet, consider one of the waffles with toppings ranging from chocolate brownies to Maltesers, or opt for one of the 11 signature shakes.

The Mad Hatter

The Mad Hatter describes itself as an “eco-conscious coffee shop, communal art space and hyper-local market.” Along with drinks like coffee and tea, guests can order a charred kimchi quesadilla, a vegetarian “sausage” roll or a mixed veggie quiche to enjoy while getting creative with some of the complimentary art supplies the café offers. Before you leave, be sure to check out the Cheshire Market for locally made items ranging from jams to bird feeders made out of upcycled teacups.
