Bringing businesses and their customers together through sports
Calgary is a sports town, with hockey being one of the most popular sports amongst Calgarians who support their local team, the Calgary Flames, in the National Hockey League. The Calgary Stampeders also have a strong fan base and compete in the Canadian Football League. Since the fall of 2021, Square has been working with Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation to enable them to accept credit and Interac debit payments with Square Register and Square Terminal for the first time at Scotiabank Saddledome and McMahon Stadiums. From there, we had the idea that we could help support small businesses by bringing together the small business community and their customers through their shared passion for sport.
Square helps sellers more easily run and grow their businesses with its integrated ecosystem of commerce solutions. Square offers purpose-built software to run complex restaurant, retail and professional services operations, versatile eCommerce tools, embedded financial services, staff management and much more – all of which work together to save sellers time and effort.

Always a smile when you walk in and you can tell they really really care about yyc and want to make this city the best place they can. I hope you pick them. They truly deserve it”
In 2016, we started with the idea of sharing our best plant-based dishes and family recipes. Fast-forward to 2021, we are proud to say that we have not only become a uniquely delicious vegan restaurant, but also a strong pillar of support for the community!
Creating a menu that uses seasonal ingredients and flavours to emphasize the beauty of vegetables. We are proud that each dish served to you is made fresh to order and packed with interesting flavour combinations!
A true family business working hard to serve you something delicious and from the heart. Blending French-style cooking with Indian flairs, non-traditional cooking methods and presentations.
We put our love into each dish we create. We hope you enjoy all that we have to offer!
