As former Saskatoon residents, we always enjoy coming back to Broadway area to check out the trendy shopping and restaurant options.

Calories was always one of our favourite dessert spots. I will start by saying that the desserts are still first rate.

Our lunch was amazing, and sitting at one of the three street-side outdoor tables is definitely the way to go on a hot summer afternoon. The lunch menu is not extensive, but I enjoyed my prosciutto tart, and my wife enjoyed her roast beef sandwich. Lunch prices are very reasonable.

It was our first time at Calories. The food was extremely tasty from the appetizer to the deserts, and well presented. Service was slow, but not to an extreme. I did not care for the Host's attitude but the waitresses were very friendly.

Desserts are a specialty, but I came out of Morocco totally over sweets so I didn't even look at the menu. The horseradish sandwich was good and there was a variety of offerings.

If you are looking for a nice quiet lunch, check it out.

It is the best hidden gem in Saskatoon. When in town it is the first place I go to. They are known for their desserts but the food is equally as good. Their food is mostly local or self grown.

Must have: Toffee cheesecake, Vegetarian – Cucumber, tomato, lettuce, onion, avocado, peppers & herbed cream cheese, soup and/or Pommes Frites with homemade ailoi, to wash it down the toffee latte.

I've lived all over Canada and visted many dessert restaurants, bare none this is true Canadian Gold.

My wife and I ordered the French toast there this morning. It came out yellow and under cooked. It looked like a Starbucks lemon loaf. There was a strawberry glaze that literally was soaking into the brioche bread. Our waitress preceded to tell us that it was because it was brioche bread. We couldn't believe that felt comfortable serving us that. I am not one to write bad reviews, but this definitely deserves one.

Thank you for your review tjsmurf.
While the French toast may have been undercooked (This could easily have been remedied immediately and it is always our favourite option as we wish) the fact that it came out yellow could be attributed to the fact that we make the French toast using our own In-house brioche and that the brioche is actually made with fresh local farm eggs and real butter. I unfortunately cannot comment on how it would compare to a "starbucks lemon Loaf" as I have never had one.
On that Sunday we had a French toast special that included an in-house star anise infused apple compote and fresh strawberries. You asked your waitress for an alternate accompaniment as the special did not appeal and although our chef did not find your request particularly appetizing he executed your order as per your specifications.
We would be delighted to be able to serve you again and hopefully turn you and your wife into Calories converts!
Best regards,
