Had lunch at Vendome yesterday ...a young man with his computer kindly moving to a small table to accommodate our group of ladies. I like that you order individually and pay at the till while staff deliver food to the table. The food was good, the prices what I expect...a great place for dessert and coffee I think after the...

Enjoyed our breakfast and would suggest you snag a table early in the wait line. Stand to order and pay then find a spot to sit down. Interesting way to roll but it works in this neighbourhood spot.

We had a fantastic brunch on the weekend here. The only thing is Cafe Vendome needs to improve the ordering / seating process. The line up to order is huge, you get your food and people who don't have food or want to wait in line, take the tables or place a hat or mitts saving the table. When you... More

I was at Vendome for Sunday brunch with 6 friends (making for a total of 7 of us). Since Sunday brunch is busy, we lined up for 15 minutes or so. As has been described in other reviews, you order at the till, take a number and then hope to find a place to sit. Sitting more than 4 to... More

Stopped in for coffee - it tasted great and served at your table, lots of choices for snacks and great atmosphere - wonderful service - very crowded as well.

This is a great little coffee place owned by the Teatro Group. It has a west facing outdoor terrace with umbrellas for an afternoon glass of wine or beer. They have live music on Thursday nights and a small but yummy food menu. It is also a great place for brunch (it does get crowded though). The coffee is good... More

Often crowded but worth the wait. You order at the counter and when ready served by a friendly waiter. Their specialty is one done with eggs. My favourite is half a portion of Poutin with two eggs. The full portion is only when really hungry. During the weekend the WIFI is turned off to serve more customers.

Popular and overcrowded most of the time, Vendome is experiencing great success since it re-opened. Customers who knew the "old" Vendome say the menu was better then. I find it limited but reasonable for a small coffee cafe. The counter staff are visibly "hip" and their cool vibe is an important element of the Vendome experience. They are unfailingly efficient...

This cute cafe is a must try! It dishes out delicious breakfast delights. I enjoyed the eggs benedict breakfast on hashbrowns (gluten allergy). They were great with my request. The coffee is equal to the breakfast. I enjoyed my experience and felt like i was hidden away somewhere else than calgary. A must go to.

After looking up Brunch places to go in Calgary, my friend and I decided on Vendome Cafe. To start the experience, the line was a good 15 minute wait. I do not care about the line, its uncontrollable and if we did not want to wait then we would have gone somewhere else. Both of us ordered the classic eggs... More
