    The old church gives the café a unique atmosphere. It's cozy, beautifully decorated with lots of antiques, and well layed out. The menu is interesting and the food, delicious. All the staff we encountered was friendly and helpful. A great place for lunch!

    The only small minor complaint I would have is that my bun was quite dried out but the burger was delicious otherwise just assuming the dish was probably in oven to keep warm but it dried out the bun

    Loved my experience there. The food was good and they accommodated my food allergy with no problem. I had the chicken brie sandwich with a Chai tea. The only negative was the PRICE!!! I was shocked when I got the bill. I was charged $37.00 for a sandwich with a tea...That did not include the tip! I realize that the cost of items have gone up and that the consumer ultimately pays but really too expensive for lunch... I would still recommend the Cafe but just warn people that you will be paying a lot for your meal and beverage and you may want to consider other options.

    Heartland CafeResponded on November 24, 2022Gil, Thank you for your love for us... we know all consumers are being caught off guard by the rising cost of everything from lettuce to insurance. We have done everything we can to keep prices down and cut where we were able. We have our prices online so we can be completely transparent about the costs of our dishes and people can be prepared. ❤️ we thank you, and all of our guests for understanding.

    A beautiful building. Fantastic service. Interesting and diverse menu. The osso bucco was great, but the sides were a little disappointing, 3 snow peas, 3 pieces of celery, 3 carrots, on some overwhelmed potatoes. The beet salad was great, as was the brandy Alexander. Amazing ambience.

    Heartland CafeResponded on November 24, 2022Thank you Jennn, We find that we are often in this dilemma, most of the people that order a meal like the osso bucco dont touch their sides, so we hate seeing the waste of food, but if we had no side we would feel we were not offering enough to the diner, so we offer a modest amount knowing the Osso Bucco will fill our guests up but we hope there will be less food waste. We are sorry if you wanted more, we would have been happy to bring you more.

    We realize staff is tight but it was one of the longest dinners I have ever had. Had the cheese plate arrived in a timely manner, we would have been ok but it was over half an hour.

    Heartland CafeResponded on November 24, 2022Kerri, We prefer to make our dishes fresh in our kitchen, while some things are prepped we know fresh tastes that much better and we hope this gives guests an opportunity to slow down and enjoy being present, relaxing, and engaging in conversation. 30 Min is a fair time for meals, when you consider we are making it fresh however we could have been a bit quicker on the cheese plate. I appreciate your patience.

    Heartland CafeResponded on November 24, 2022John, Thank you, and that note is perfect, some of our guests love the opportunity to slow down and relax with the pace, some guests are in more of a rush.

    Heartland Cafe never fails to deliver on all levels. The food is exceptional, full of flavor often with a touch of something different. I love the beet salad, not a fan of goat cheese but they are more that willing to substitute feta! In keeping with the season, added to my salad along with many other flavorful delights, was roasted pumpkin, delicious! I recommend adding the Pecan chicken breast for a hearty lunch. Tried a new dessert, Chocolate Avocado Mousse - wasn't sure how avocado would work, but it was rich and creamy. A chocolate lover's dream. As an aside, my guest had the chicken and brie sandwich with slices of Granny Smith apples and date jam. She loved every bite commenting not only on the exceptional taste but on the freshness of the bun and the moist, flavorful chicken. It is such a pleasure to have the option of a place to dine in Okotoks where you don't order from your car window! We do that too. But that makes this experience even more of a treat!

    I had the pecan chicken with sweet potato puree and veggies. My partner had the braised ribs with mixed veggies. Both dishes were delicious and filling, but not heavy. The waitress was very knowledgeable and courteous. She paid attention to everything taking care of her guests without being overbearing. The setting is intimate with a great ambience from the old-time decor and the church building itself. Highly recommendable.
