Taste Budz Leaving Abbey Centre

We are sorry to announce that our friends at Taste Budz Grill we be leaving the Abbey Centre at the end of the year.

We wish Richard, Mark and their team all the best on their future endeavors.  We are currently working on acquiring a new food services contractor.  We are striving to have them in place by February 1, 2019.


While enjoying the many amenities at the Abbey Centre, stop by the Taste Budz Grill and try a quick post workout snack, protein shake, salad, sandwich or various gluten free options.  

The Abbey ensures that healthy food options are made available at all town facilities and events for those seeking a healthier nutrition option. See the Healthy Choices Policy 217/11. Look for our nutrition board outside of Food Services for nutrition information, recipes and specials/promotions.

We also offer light fare such as coffee, drinks, soups, sandwiches and squares for meetings and training sessions. Please contact us to discuss your options.

Taste Budz serves up various menu items inside the Abbey Centre next to Guest Services and pool side at the McKay Ranch Outdoor Aquatic Centre during the summer.

We invite you to enjoy one of our many inside eating areas in the main floor lobby, south of Guest Services, and the second floor near the Border Paving Fitness Centre. On warm days, you can have a picnic with a friend as the kids discover the dinosaur park.

Please follow the "No food and drink" policy in areas such as the Field House and Red Deer Kinsmen Indoor Play Space.

Note: As we undergo changes and improvements to our menu, please check back here often.

Recycle For A Good Cause

Please recycle your drink containers in the receptacles provided. All proceeds are donated to the Leisure Access Program through Family & Community Support Services (FCSS).

Spot the Dot

Your health is important to us!

The Abbey Centre is proud to champion the Spot the Dot program.  All food offered in the vending machines and at Food Services are marked with the red, blue or green dot to differentiate low nutrient foods from moderate to high nutrient food choices.  We hope this will help guide you in making a quick and informative decision!
