Whether you’re looking for a breakfast date, coffee date, dinner date, or late night glass of wine and dessert, Vendome is Calgary’s trendy spot nestled in a historic building in the heart of Sunnyside offering everything from Mediterranean-style dishes, to grab & go items!
Vendome has been dedicated to bringing the surrounding community fresh food and familiar faces for over a decade now! This eatery is a Calgary staple and versatile enough to add to your regularly date night roster.
The Vendome Block
Walking up to Vendome, you’ll notice the historic building that brings a different vibe than the typical downtown date spot.
The Vendome Block was originally built as a mixed-use building in 1912, and after many tenants, uses, a couple of fires, and lots of repair from the Teatro Group, it’s what Calgary knows and loves today.
Vendome strived to honour tradition by supporting the community through the use of local farmers and artisans in their cafe and restaurant. The menu is heavily influenced by the diverse community that surrounds the establishment, creating binge-worthy meals from brunch, to pasta, salads, handhelds, and more!
Vendome recently launched their new menu and it is seriously making a splash! Some examples of their tasty new items include: duck wings with a sour cherry glaze, steak frites which is a 10oz AAA Striploin, seasoned fries, chimichurri, and the seafood & preserved lemon linguine with calabrian chili, mussels, squid & shrimp. Their breakfast/brunch menu is packed with Vendome favourites like eggs benny and avocado toast.
They also offer daily features so everyday you get to experience something special!
Monday – All day happy hour
Tuesday – Smoked brisket with rotating sides
Wednesday – Date night 3 course ‘family style’ meal for two & a bottle of wine
Thursday – Feature pasta night (changes weekly)
Friday – Boozy float Friday
