Trendy little coffee shop in downtown Lethbridge. Popular among the university crowd trying to look cool, drinking lattes and and playing games on their iMacs, Food is average soup and sandwich fair for lunch. Desserts however, rate above average.

This café is often very busy because it's so good! It has a welcoming, homey atmosphere and really nice staff. The baked goods are delicious, and they are beginning to offer a lot of vegan and gluten-free options. Great london fog!

The smell of freshly cooked cinnamon buns met us as we opened the door. We found an excellent selection of savoury and sweet breakfast treats along with coffee and tea selections. What a perfect place to start the day.

The place is packed, the reviews here are great, so what went wrong? Just about everything: - The cashier was so bored and distracted that she made me feel uncomfortable. - They had nothing but stale bread so I ordered a wrap. Big mistake. Bile-bitter...More
