Margarita’s Dishes is a family business operated by Margarita and her son Danny. Margarita immigrated to Canada from Ukraine and opened her first restaurant in the 1980s offering authentic cultural cuisine. As a member of the Calgary Farmers’ Market, she was joined by her son Danny who had experience opening five restaurants in New York. Together, they form the perfect team serving old world dishes with modern attention to detail and customer service.

A must-have when visiting Margarita’s Dishes are the homemade cottage cheese pierogis. Margarita (and now her children and grandchildren) has been handmaking them for 80 years! Even the cottage cheese is prepared in-house, using whole buttermilk and incorporating the old-world technique that every true foodie would appreciate.
