Enjoy lunch or a snack at Club Café at Heritage Park, as we celebrate the Chinese cafes that were a staple of virtually every growing prairie town through the first half of the 20th century. While the façade resembles Wong’s Public Lunch in Olds in 1918, the interior incorporates a lunch counter, curtained booths, tongue-and-groove siding and drop-style lighting fixtures, all of which were repeatedly found in archival photographs and eyewitness accounts. The name Club Cafe was chosen because research found this to be the most commonly used name for Chinese cafes in southern Alberta. The exhibit, which doubles as a unique dining experience for Park guests, is open for you to enjoy when visiting Heritage Park.
