5 places to find the best fondue in Calgary

Nov 24 2021, 8:31 pm

There’s hardly a food more comforting than melted cheese, and lucky for us, fondue is the socially acceptable version of this decadent dish.

Whether you’re dipping fresh sourdough into it or pouring it over some potatoes and cured meat, cheese fondue is something that screams comfort on a chilly night.

Basically a warm foodie hug from the inside out, fondue is something we definitely want to have on our radar (and our plates) this season.

Here’s where to get the best fondue in and around Calgary.

Bitter Sisters Brewing Co.

In addition to some incredible beer, this family-run brewery dishes up a drool-worthy menu too. Bitter Sisters makes their cheese fondue with Gruyère and Emmental, and it’s served with roasted seasonal vegetables, sourdough, and pickles. For $7, you can even add on local bratwurst.

While the Grizzly House isn’t quite in Calgary, it’s hard to talk about fondue in the area without giving a nod to this iconic Banff restaurant, where this cheesy dish has been the name of the game for almost 50 years. The menu includes a number of full-on fondue feasts, from the cheese opener to the chocolate finish. In between your dipping courses, you can be as basic as beef or try some really wild stuff: shark, alligator, frog, rattlesnake, ostrich, and more.
