Now renewed and refreshed, and now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Vendome Café has a completely new menu as well as a new vibe with Chef Alejandro Buzzalino at the helm. These smoked salmon donuts with flaked smoked salmon, potatoes, and fresh herbs, are crunchy yet meltingly soft inside and come with a creamy garlic dip – a must eat, as were all the dishes we tried here!
Smoked Salmon Potato Donuts $13 at Vendome Café
940 2nd Avenue NW, Calgary, 403-453-1140
Soleil Bistro & Bar
You’ll find more ‘donut-style’ deliciousness at the brand new Soleil Bistro & Bar, the new sibling to Patisserie Du Soleil. There is a lot to love on Chef Zoltan Csiki’s menu, and it’s all extremely good value, but while we’re drooling over our savoury donuts this week, then you have to try the warm beignet bombs filled with oozing goat cheese. They come with garlic aioli to dip into too!
French-style Begniet Bombs $7 at Soleil Bistro & Bar

Mumbai Street Food
Have you tried Mumbai Street Food in Ramsay yet? It’s only available on Sundays and Mondays, 11 am-5 pm – and it’s terrific – really good value too! The menu changes each week but you’re likely to find dosas with sambhar and coconut, (do try them! You’ll thank us!) and last week the star of the show was Medhu Vada – lentil donuts with Sambhar sauce and fresh coconut chutney to dip in to. The Menu changes each week – check them out!
Medhu Vada, $10 at Mumbai Street Food
