Lunch at 80th & Ivy

A few weeks ago, we gave 80th & Ivy a try for lunch. I had been waiting for an opportunity to try this place ever since it opened up (1127 17 Ave SW, Calgary): it looked good, great patio for people watching and I really liked the big windows. I did not know there’s a ‘back’ that looks more like a bistro than a pub – lots of natural light, simple and clean decorum, view of the kitchen and lots of plants.

All in all, I liked both the place and the food! We were seated at a small table for two, with a great view of the entire room. I ordered the rotisserie chicken sandwich ($14) which was delicious: sweet buns, chicken and apple slaw. As far as I could tell, the chicken was fresh and the sweet buns went very well with the meat spices. My partner went for the soup of the day ($7) and the steak sandwich ($19). Both were fresh and tasty! Our Groupon for $40 covered the bill (they do charge for the bottled water) and I placed this restaurant on my list of nice places for going out in Calgary!


Keep it clean, keep it simple, keep it IKEA style.

    I found this place to be expensive with bad service and sub-par food. Definitely not how you describe it at all.
