Chix Egg Shop is back after a hiatus and it now offers bone-in fried chicken. This East Village restaurant is already known for its breakfast sandwiches, and this new addition to the menu looks seriously tasty too. Choose from six or 12 pieces and make it a meal with potato wedges, salad and a jumbo chocolate chip cookie. Available for takeout or delivery through SkipTheDishes.

624 6 Ave. S.E., chixeggshop.square.site

Hutch Cafe’s afternoon tea is now available for takeout, just in time for Mother’s Day. The tea set for two costs $78 and includes an adorable tea tower, six sweets including macarons and scones, four savoury items including smoked salmon sandwiches and Kusmi Tea. Pre-orders are recommended.

Smash Cake from MJ Bakes YYC

If you’re looking for a birthday cake, Mother’s Day cake or just a “it’s Monday” cake, you can make it extra fun with a smash cake. MJ Bakes YYC makes smash cakes that come with a small mallet that you use to smash a hard chocolate outer layer to reveal fillings that can include cupcakes, chocolates, gummy candies and more. Order through Facebook or Instagram and pick up at the Delta Hotel South.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with tacos from either of Unimarket’s two Calgary locations. You can’t dine in, but you can get some authentic tacos to-go. We suggest the birria, al pastor and chicken tinga. Unimarket is also doing Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Packs with everything from tacos to ingredients to make your own Paloma cocktail. These are selling out quickly, so order sooner than later.

128 50 Ave. S.E., 403-255-4479 and 2405 Edmonton Tr. N.E., 403-255-4479, unimarket.ca

Just the thought of biting into a juicy peach makes our mouths water. Luckily, there’s Village Ice Cream’s new peach jam seasonal ice cream flavour. It’s gluten-friendly, made with a peach and vanilla base and swirled with house-made peach jam. You can get a scoop or a pint at all four Calgary locations.
