Hart Healthy Food Now Open


A fresh new approach to healthy eating has arrived in East Village! Hart Healthy Food (HHF) has opened its doors in the base of Verve condo tower, where energizing breakfast, lunch and dinner is being served up seven days a week.

Owner Alex Hart knows the importance of fuelling your body with wholesome foods – she’s part of the legendary Hart wrestling family, born and bred in Calgary. Aside from having a special connection to our city, Alex also has ties to the very site where Hart Healthy Foods is located. Before East Village’s revitalization was underway, BJ’s Gym sat at the corner of 5th St & 6th Ave SE and was owned by B.J. Annis, Alex’s uncle. Alongside her cousins, she would hang out at the gym and have sleepovers in the residential unit above.

Despite the restaurant’s connection to sport, don’t be intimidated to walk through the doors if you’re not a world-class wrestler! The fare HHF prepares is tasty, flavour-packed food that anyone can enjoy. And we truly mean anyone – HHF offers dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options.

Plus, the restaurant is as much a spot to fuel up as it is to unwind. If you’re not grabbing something from the to-go section, you can settle into the comfy booth seating and maybe even order a glass off the “Hart House” wine list.
