Breakfast
A cozy brunch spot, with a focus on breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes complete with coffee and cocktails. The menu, created by well-known Calgary chef, Andrea Harling, features traditional breakfast favourites like the Rooster Breakfast (2 eggs, maple sausage, rooster potatoes and multigrain toast) and a Smoked Salmon Benny along with non-traditional offerings such as a Coconut Shakshuka featuring poached eggs, tomato coconut chickpea stew with herb tahini. With a new take on "comfort food", Chef Andrea Harling's menu focuses on family and making memories around food, by using her grandmothers Cheese Biscuits recipe and grandfathers Harling breakfast sausage recipe, The Sweatered Hen is a family affair.

    An excellent addition to the 17th Ave food scene. Menu is full of traditional breakfast, brunch and lunch items, elevated by the expert touch of chef Andrea Harling.

    Next time I would not take the table by the door. As customers waiting in line leave the door open and creates a draft. Plus people always squeezing behind my chair. Food was very tasty and they have some gluten free options but not listed on menu. You have to ask server every time. Very busy and noisy echoing.
    The Sweatered HenResponded on May 24, 2024
    Hello, Thank you for your review, we really appreciate it. We do have a plan in place in order to reduce the noise and echo, as we know this is an issue. We are still working on the layout of the room and tables, and will take your review into consideration for making possible changes. We hope to serve you again. Love, TSH

    Even though we made the reservation, they had reserved someone an hour after us, and the waitress kept reminding us to leave, even though there were several empty tables in the restaurant. That was very unprofessional and make the experience unpleasant.
    The Sweatered HenResponded on May 11, 2024
    Hello, Thank you for the great review, we appreciate your honesty. We try our best to stagger reservation times in order for customers to fully enjoy their experience and not feel rushed, unfortunately the weekend is our busiest time and we aren't always able to leave a "buffer" in between reservations the way we like to. Often times an empty table is set and ready for a reservation, making it seem available but may actually be reserved within the next 15 minutes. We're sorry this affected your overall experience and hope to see you again in the future. Love, TSH
