We had a lovely evening with a great server. We enjoyed the soup, (pumpkin and tomato basil), bread, and beet salad. We were disappointed with the gnocchi, it was overly salted, cold and very chewy. I was looking forward to trying this dish but will not recommend it or have again. We both ordered a large glass of wine and I had pieces of residue in the bottom of my glass, a little off putting.

We wanted a really nice evening to celebrate our Anniversary and it was just lovely.. our dinner was delicious, best Caesar Salad ever, our beef was perfect and the vegetables were so flavorful !! Great ambiance, and the biggest surprise was the "friendly, sincere service" we received, far out did any restaurant in Calgary. So glad we decided to have a wonderful night out at the Heartland with an on the House fabulous dessert for our 50 years together.

Food was amazing! Great prices, hearty home style comfort in every bite. Wish they had a cocktail menu instead of just a wine list. Also they were playing some odd music, spice girls and I want you to want me, music didn’t fit the environs of the food and the environment. It’s beautiful and I will definitely be back a million times again

Heartland Cafe is a distinctly unique experience, set in a unique venue.
This repurposed Church in Okotoks has been tastefully and cleverly converted into a delightful decor and dining destination. The service is friendly and warm. And the food is memorable for all the right reasons. The menu is uncomplicated, offering something for everyone. We cannot speak highly enough about our memorable first visit here other than to say that it will NOT be our last. We will be back; next time with friends so we get to share the experience together.
