One of the best selection of bakery in the city. Place is cozy, located in a nice, hypster-ish district. Their coffees and teas are expensive and not that good, but I would still recommend it for tea time. Food and service are their low point, even when they use organic ingredients. So forgettable that all I remember about my dish was the sparragus that came with it. Service is mostly provided by spacey, unenthusiastic, low-energy staff that make you feel they are doing you a huge favor for bringing you food. Stick to their sweets, there are better food options around the city.

Calories began as a place to visit for wonderful desserts and then incorporated a full menu with emphasis on local food products. The ambiance is plain but features many pieces of artwork of artists from in and around Saskatoon. The menu was first satisfactory but over the past year has become limited and extremely very expensive. Want a steak? $16.00 for a cheap cut and add $3.00 for small three ounce salad, $3.00 for fries, and the options continue. The service is by no means exceptional and if one wants a cocktail or straight alcohol beverage, they will pay dearly over the prices at other Broadway area restaurants. They have had the opportunity of correcting growing pains and have failed. Thus, I rate it as of 2014 at 3/10. Dining out in Saskatoon has many other options that are best suited for those wanting quality products and service.

Love the Club, with avocado! The soups are generally great, but there is the odd one that I would never order again. The wait staff is very friendly and always seem to be well versed in whatever is on the menu!

Calories is one of the top five restaurants in Saskatoon. French inspired cuisine, delicious food, great soups, sauces that defy description, tender locally sourced meats, specials that are always tempting, but regular menu items that need to be had repeatedly. The service is excellent, none of the "Hi guys my name is Junior" business. Very professional staff. Very good selection from the bar...organic gin, local craft beer, well paired wines, that the staff are familiar with, so a recommendation is typically one that comes with some knowledge. The best restaurant meals I have ever had in Saskatoon have come from Calories kitchen. Then there are the cakes. And pies. Cheesecake, Saskatoon berry, apple torte. Calories is the spot to go for a mid afternoon dessert. Let it be said, if you want a tremendous meal, lunch or dinner, or a cake and coffee in the aternoon or after a show, in a restaurant that is dedicated to providing just that, it is Calories that you want....on the best street in Saskatoon.

I go to Calories fairly often for business lunches. You can get reasonably private tables along the north wall in the back part of the restaurant. The food is always interesting - a bit unusual - and excellent. On my most recent visit I had the quiche, which that day was done with caramelized onions, mushrooms and brie. Delicious.
