Yes, River Café Is Open!

For season 6 of ‘Yes, We Are Open’, Al heads west to Alberta! His first stop is Prince’s Island in Calgary, an urban oasis located on the Bow River.

Sal Howell is the owner of the café, which started as a park concession. In 1995, Sal transformed the open-air space into a must-see year-round dining experience.
