It's nearing road trip season in Alberta once again, which means it's also an excellent chance to check out some of the province's best eats.
Sure, Calgary and Edmonton both have some excellent restaurants, but we know from experience that sometimes the best places to dine are found off the beaten path.
We asked our Facebook friends to help us narrow down some of the best places to eat in Alberta's smaller towns and hamlets. We got suggestions for cafes, bakeries and bistros — and even a few places where you can pick up a tasty ice cream or cold drink!
We've left no stone unturned. From northern Alberta truck stops to southern Alberta grills, there's something on our list to suit every taste.
Check out the suggestions below and be sure to share your favourite hidden gem in the comments!
