It was very hot in the restaurant. No air conditioning. The service was very slow. The food was good, not great, but very over priced for salad and a chicken breast; over $25.00.

Garry, We appreciate you taking the time to visit us. Thank you for your honest comments, we appreciate hearing feedback and we are sorry you didn't love your experience. We have a cooling system in the restaurant but we can only make so many modifications to our building to accommodate modern touches without losing some of the unique beauty of the old church. We are sorry you didn't love your meal, we have become well known for the salad and chicken but know everyone has differentprefernces.

Anonymous Thank you for the honesty in your note. Often we have had people still think we are a 'cafe' and are a little surprised when they find we are more of a restaurant. We have been working on this but we the Heartland has had a long history prior to this change. We hope we will see you again even if you save us for special occasions! ❤️

The room is so cool. Staff was wonderful, our server Alison was great.

The food is so bright and fresh. Flavours were on point. I had the squid ink tagliatelle and my date had the pesto tagliatelle, pasta was fresh made and delicious, was lacking a little salt, but other than that, top notch.

Worth the drive from Calgary, thank you so much for the great dinner.

The Heartland Café was a wonderful experience! The food was delicious and the atmosphere very pleasant. However, it should be noted that they stopped serving brunch a couple of years ago. It might be good to update your site , as we went there for brunch, but no such luck. Decided to stay anyway, and had a delicious lunch instead!

It's a beautiful restaurant in a pretty town. The service was impeccable. However, I was very disappointed by the amount of food for the price. The gambas pil pil dish ($32) was approximately 8 shrimp in some oil and a few pieces of bread. It was tasty, but in no way satisfying.
