CrossIron Mills, Balzac

One of the tenants at the new Balzac mega-mall north of Calgary (CrossIron Mills) will be South Street Burger Co. Toronto Life says:

"South St. Burger Co.
This may come as a surprise, but one of the city’s best burgers comes courtesy of a fast food chain. A new spinoff of New York Fries, this Leaside shop has an interior that smells like a backyard barbecue. And the flame-licked meat is topped with a choice of such house-made offerings as peach or mango sauce (take that, McDonald’s), four kinds of cheese, chunky guacamole and fresh veg. The shakes and fries should not be missed."

The mall opens August 19th.

  1. Sounds intriguing...I wonder what other food places will be there? (I know plenty of people excited about the Bed Bath & Beyond) Thanks 23skidoo :)

      Looks like there are only food court selections.
      Website has 25-30 food/food-related establishments listed in 3 overlapping categories.

      Other possible ones of interest:
      Buttercream Bake Shoppe
      Villa Medina
      Crepe Delicious
      Otherwise, the usual food court suspects.

            ohhh....zing!

            The one I'm most familiar with is in Chesea in NYC and their cookware was vastly superior to any Sears. Hopefully they can bring a little of that here.

            Managed to keep it on-topic! phew!

            1. re: sharonanne

              Point taken. We used to buy our cookware at a WS outlet store when in the US. I don't go to Sears or BBB

          2. re: sharonanne

            It's not that great ... I was excited to go to one in the US and I thought I was in Linens and Things -- same deal.

            Exciting about the food options though! I think Buttercream Bake shop is out of NYC, but I could be wrong.

              1. re: sweeterpea

                AFAIK it's Calgary-based with 3 locations: 17th Avenue, CFM and now CrossIron: http://www.buttercreambakeshoppe.com/

                1. re: sweeterpea

                  If we had Linens and Things! The selection is better. I saw something at BB and B, thought I could get it in Calgary, looked ALL over for it including Linens and Things, Tried and failed to find the BB and B in Vegas. Husband still frowns at that memory. How the heck you can fail to find something in Vegas... but I was navigating so my fault. Ended up buying it at the Chelsea store next time I was in NY. Hotels in NYC are too expensive for this silliness.
