Ala Nahal came to Calgary in 1988 to work as a chef at the Winter Olympics, where he met a woman named Char. “She was a chef as well,” Ala says. “I moved from Paris to Calgary for her.” Ala and Char worked in the industry until 1999, when they decided to open their own bakery, Patisserie du Soleil – or “Pastry of the Sun”.

Ala’s career as a pastry chef began with the opening of the bakery. “I’d worked around Calgary before Patisserie du Soleil, so I knew my competitors and colleagues and how they worked - and that’s how I knew what to do differently,” Ala says. “We are proud of being different; it’s part of why we love our work.”

Among its distinguished clientele, this world-class bakery has served freshly made desserts to former United States president Bill Clinton, former prime minister Jean Chretien and current Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Where to find great coffee on the Plus 15 in Calgary

Where the skywalk from Suncor Energy Centre meets The Bow building high above Centre Street, you’ll find a sunny French café counter that serves Calgary’s own Phil & Sebastian Coffee. Order yourself an espresso with a slice of quiche, a roast-pork Cuban sandwich or a mini apple pie, and take a seat in the airy Bow atrium overlooking Wonderland, the massive mesh sculpture colloquially known as The Giant Head.
