What a weekend in Calgary! My 3 bffs and I made our way down this past weekend for a few days of relaxation and restoration. We are all in very different times in our lives right now, but we were all in agreement – we were ready for a girls trip!
Day 1 | We stayed downtown at Hotel Le Germain, right across from the Calgary Tower, and spent the first night walking 8th Avenue. We made our way over to National on 8th and played foosball (I showed off my fancy foosball skills, they can attest to that).
Day 2 | The next day we drove to southern Calgary and enjoyed lunch at Starbelly – I had seen many of my favourite Calgary bloggers snapchats and Instagram posts from Starbelly and knew I needed to go. It did not disappoint! The highlight of our meal was the brie and crostini board with honey, nuts, and cranberries.
From there we naturally stopped at Chinook Mall and we seemed to have a common theme in our shopping venture of stockings, booties, and tights.
That evening we traveled to 17th Avenue (I have heard so much about it) for supper at 80th & Ivy – I enjoyed braised lamb and gnocchi, and we may have devoured all 3 of their desserts: chocolate peanut butter cream pie oreo crumble, raisin butter tart, and salted caramel creme brûlée.
Day 3 | On our final day we stopped at Buttermilk Fine Waffles and devoured our H.A.M waffles and fruit waffles. After we topped off our caffeine intake at Rosso Coffee Roasters in Inglewood with some buttery smooth (my bffs laughed at my description but it’s legit…) lattes.
I can’t wait for my next trip down to Calgary and what places I will discover next! Follow my adventures on Instagram through #honeyandbettstravel.
