Nick’s Steakhouse and Pizza, across from McMahon Stadium in Capital Hill, serves a fabulous house-made cheesecake recipe. In fact, the iconic Calgary eatery has been serving this dessert for over 30 years. Made from scratch, it comes with your choice of blueberry or strawberry topping. Make the cheesecake an after-dinner treat, or just stop in for a tantalizing slice of this special dessert.
This steakhouse and pizzeria isn’t shy when it comes to desserts. The High Five Chocolate Cake features five layers of rich, chocolate cake topped with – of course – chocolate glaze. The dessert menu also includes a cookies-and-cream cake and mile-high mud pie.
Located right near the University of Calgary, Nick’s has been a Calgary dining staple for more than three decades. A popular celebratory destination for university students and families, the restaurant also features a surprisingly pie-centric dessert menu. The frozen peanut butter pie combines the comforting flavours of peanut butter, chocolate and bananas into a super-sized, frozen-ice-cream-like pie. Also try the heaping Mile High Mud Pie.
