Where to Get the Absolute Best Dessert in Calgary!

As a squad of enthusiastic foodies with a competitive spirit, we’ve made it our mission to find the best of the best before anyone else. 

Think of it like the Olympics, but instead of jumping over the bar in pole vaulting, we’re reaching for the pinnacle of Calgary’s culinary secrets and… er… probably gaining more than a few pounds in the process.
