A few months ago my husband JC and I ventured to the Rocky Mountains for an extended weekend in Canmore. This little town has tons of great food options to explore. All the delicious places we tried on this trip recommended by friends and through Twitter. Because I cannot get enough coffee and treats our list mostly consisted of cafes. I was also excited to learn that Canmore has two coffee roasters! See the highlights of our trip’s eats and treats at these Wonderful Canmore Coffee Roasters & Restaurants.
This restaurant offers a chill vibe with tasty internationally inspired dishes. The menu had many great options, so we decided to try a collection of their smaller plates. We started with pickled brine fried chicken; it was perfectly crisp with bites of mustard seeds. Our next dish was honey-roasted eggplant spread out over labneh cheese, a delicious mix of creamy and sweet. We finished with Vietnamese pork meatballs wrapped in butter lettuce. Every bite was filled with flavour!
As soon as we walked into this bakery, I knew it was going to be delicious. Loaves of rye and other yummy breads were stacked up beside the door. Behind the glass counter, pies, quiches, and sandwiches were on display. Further, down I spotted cookies, pastries, and other sweet treats. For breakfast, we each got a cappuccino. I decided on a carrot cream cheese muffin and croissant. JC went for a bacon spinach quiche, apple strudel, and little lemon shortbread cookies. Everything was fresh and tasty. The atmosphere and baked goods selection were reminiscent of a German bakery.
This coffee house is divided into sections; the café, the roasting area, and the lounge. At the entrance, coffee lovers can buy a cup of coffee or a bag of beans. Behind the glass wall, I could see their roaster equipment set up. If you visit on the right day, you can watch the coffee roasting magic happen. We ordered a sample tray and got to choose from six of their coffees. Once our tray was ready we went down the hallway to the lounge area and tried our Peru blend brewed two different ways; single shot Ristretto and Piccolo Latte. Their lounge area was a good size with two walls of windows letting in tons of sunlight.
Two days each week, they serve up fresh coffee while they roast their beans. It’s a simple shop set up with a coffee bar and stools. Perfect for trying a cup before you buy a bag. With 20 years of roasting experience, they have some eclectic mixes. Every sip of my cappuccino revealed a different level of flavour, it was like drinking a fine wine. We were told this blend was a combination of beans from all over the world and took 8 months to perfect all the levels of flavours. I immediately purchased a bag to bring home.
