About


My quaint, licensed café & bistro with a 30 seat capacity, is situated on the Cowboy Trail, in Priddis, Alberta.  

If I could describe the atmosphere, it’s warmly coloured, visually stimulating with lots to look at, and it smells fantastic, as we make/bake almost everything* from scratch.PVB Muffins baked fresh in our baking kitchen

PVB is intimate, it’s a place to talk over a coffee or a beer, a dessert, or a meal. Visiting PVB is supposed to be like visiting a favourite friend or family member at their home. Ohhh, our lemon tarts, is your mouth watering??

Before owning PVB, I was trained as an Interior Designer. Without changing the structure of this house we bought, I designed what I needed into our small footprint of PVB so I could still seat about 25-30 guests supported by our two small commercial kitchens.

The interior space is styled with many of the things that I like and wanted in my bistro. Much of the art hanging throughout is available for purchase and when you visit will notice unique gift items. Look around.

We accept bookings for special events, like birthdays, anniversaries, romantic dinners, and intimate corporate functions, and large family events.

  •   We are a great place to come for dessert and coffees.
  •   We offer catering to events outside our bistro.
  •   Reservations are recommended for weekend dinners, starting @ 5:30 p.m.
  •   Phone us 403.931.3611 to reserve or reserve a table online
  •   Located 10-12 mins SW of Calgary (Google map)

An example of our curremt menu is online here (Priddis View & Brew Menu 2017). It may not be exactly the same when you arrive as ‘things happen, seasons change’.
We use fresh ingredients that change much more often than our web site.

We try to be sensitive to your sensitivities with ingredients. If you have a sensitivity to an ingredient, please inform your server before ordering.

For special events, we can create a menu to suit your occasion. 

Around back of the bistro is a beautifully landscaped arbour, perfect for photos in the summer and can be a very romantic setting to enjoy your dinner or have a coffee and dessert. Our large patio deck is available on sunny days. Weather changes here quickly some days, so if you like the idea of eating on the patio, bring a sweater, just in case.

My style of cooking and the recipes I have created are worth the short scenic drive, ride, or cycle to Priddis. I look forward to seeing you.

If you’re from the area, then ‘Welcome Back.’

….oh right, about this little John Catucci TV show thingy, You Gotta Eat Here.
It will be available from the Food Network soon. Ours is Season 4, Episode 2, 2nd segment. It’s made us busier. Reservations sure are appreciated.
