We went in search of a late lunch on our first afternoon in Calgary. 4th Street offers two and three restaurants in each block as you head uptown. There are chain restaurants like “Earls” and “Original Joes”.
We were hoping for something different, something only offered in Calgary and accidently walked into Suzette.
The crisp, white modern interior of this restaurant serves about 30 smiling patrons, all of us seated elbow to elbow at tiny wooden tables. The specialties are crepes…. sweet and savory. We chose a Galettes ( a savoury, buckwheat crepe) french ham, gruyere cheese and egg for Messier and local farm bacon, roasted potato & sautéed mushrooms for Madame.
When one is on vacation you are not bound to convention and we order Kir Royales (champagne and cassis) which are delivered in matched set of old fashion champagne glasses. We sip them to the music of several languages, French, Italian and Chinese, floating on air scented with garlic and onion, too happy to think about anything else.
