With all the hype about Tim Horton and Starbucks and blah blah blah, I wanted something different. I was at the Eau Claire Market and just wanted something different, and a person suggested this place to me. I'm glad he did because I walked away with 3 berry mixed with white chocolate scones, and it was explosively tasty. I took... More

I like to come here after being at Prince's Island. In all honesty it is not bad but then again it's nothing special. I like the ambiance but the coffee and hot chocolate are nothing extraordinary. Staff is for the most part polite but that's about it.

I went to the Good Earth Cafe in Glenmore Crossing. I happened to be visiting the Running Room in the same location. Good coffee, friendly staff. Mid price range.

VERY FRIENDLY spot, offering just the right stuff for the customers - staff recommendations were right on target for my needs at the time and did not leave me disappointed. Grabbed a salad for later on, and didn't eat it for over a day - even the cut-up avocado stayed AMAZINGLY fresh! Totally impressed with food quality and atmosphere!

Did't think it looked much from the outside, but we decided to grab a coffee and snack. Pleasantly surprised by the friendly and efficient service, and the quality of food and coffee. Would definitely return next time in Calgary. Outside seating too which is handy.

Just the Basics. Healthy Comfort food. Family Friendly. Selection works. Great for lunch or during a busy tour. Usually fast and cheerful service. Staff recommendations are right on the mark. Easy on the wallet. Easy on the palette. Makes vegetables fun.

I went to the original "good Earth cafe" on 11 street and 15 avenue S.W. the other day and was extremely disappointed. I have been a customer there and at other locations since its inception 20 years ago. I loved the ambiance, food and location and made it a regular experience for breakfast or lunch. My friend and I often... More

best CHAIN espresso bar in Canada but there are better coffeehouses now. Still, GE is miles ahead of Starbucks.
