I've only been to Cactus Club Cafe once, but the butternut squash ravioli I tried is hard to forget! I'm excited for my next visit to Calgary to come back for more.More

This is a very popular spot. Maybe that is because the food is of such a high quality. Some dishes are quite expensive, but there is a decent variety of good food at reasonable prices as well. I enjoyed my Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl immensely....More
