When the Chinook winds roll in, it’s a great time to explore some of Calgary’s Best Neighbourhoods such as Bowness, which ranked in the top 10 on this year’s list. Fuel up with a fresh, juicy bacon cheeseburger at Dell Cafe, a small, diner-style hidden gem that serves both North American and Chinese dishes. After, pop into The Bownesian Grocer next door.

After a 10-year hiatus, Spoon Fed Soup is back and operating out of the SunnyCider kitchen. Chef and owner Carmie Nearing was in the food delivery business back in 2005 before taking time off to raise her family. Now, she’s cooking up batches of three weekly soups for delivery, many of which will be vegan, dairy-free and/or gluten-free. New soups are posted on the website every Monday but the Vegan Coconut Red Lentil Soup is always available. Orders must be placed online by end of day Tuesday for Thursday delivery, which is free within a specific area.

Spoon Fed Soup will also be doing a soup and sandwich pop-up later this month at SunnyCider. Details will be available on Spoon Fed Soup’s website. You can also find Nearing’s soups at Sunnyside Natural Market.
