Local Public Eatery – Medicine Hat, Alberta

I feel like I’ve been telling my life story lately. I’m not sorry it’s been very wordy.. as it’s been an interesting period of my life. Where I go, what I do, who I’m with has been changing and I’m reflecting. Medicine Hat is a city I spent a lot of time in as a young girl when we first came to Calgary. On this particular day I followed my grandmas sister-in-law and her daughters to Medicine Hat. We did a nice blast into the past and required lunch so we found Local Public Eatery and they had space for all 6 of us.

We ordered refreshing drinks on this super hot 30C+ day and some food. I wanted something a tad “lighter” and went for Tuna Club Sandwich, which was really amazing and large portions. I actually got scolded for not finishing my lunch! I don’t remember the last time I didn’t finish and got in trouble. Oh family!

My husband had an interesting trip on Medicine Hat journey. He knows my past but never to this extent. Things I’ve told him got verified today and we learned a lot of new things as well. But, his lunch was a giant portion of their Local Burger! Him and my second cousin devoured their entire plates! It was insane! I just didn’t want to be too full as the 3 hour trip home would make me sick if I ate it all.

On and on I talk about the trip I had so now I will go back to Local. The service was great, the bathroom doors were really heavy (I am super weak as well though…) the space was large, the food was so good! I loved our time here! We parked blocks away as we were doing other things. This place now has a place in my heart. I haven’t been back to Medicine Hat since this history lesson day but I know I will, and I will likely stop in here with some other places!

The Coup – Calgary, Alberta

We went to The Coup for my sister-in-law’s birthday as this was a place she picked – which is great, I’ve never been here before! It’s a cute little place on 17th Avenue which caters to local & organic, and meat free!

We started our day with our drinks, where I ordered a Chocolate Chai and it was rather tasty. It’s not as spicy as I would like it, but it was a good blend.

I decided on ordering the Un-Traditional which turned out to be a plate of food that I actually liked quite a bit! It had scrambled eggs, toast, rosemary hashbrowns, king oyster mushroom bacon, smoked maple baked beans. I really enjoyed the rosemary hashbrowns, it was very tasty and quite different from other hashbrowns!

My husband had ordered the “un-baked” hippy split that was a mixture of granola with quinoa, banana, and hemp hearts made with almond milk. This bowl was actually quite tasty and really filling!

Our overall experience here was positive. It satisfied the meat lover in me and my husband – still leaving feeling satisfied and really full. It was a great place and now I know I can take my sister here when she visits as she’s vegan, it will be easier for her!
