Nate Box, you glorious human. Thank you for bringing coffee culture to Edmonton. Not only did he open my new favourite spot in Downtown YEG, but he also opened Elm Café in Oliver, Burrow inside the Central LRT station and, the most recent addiction, the Little Brick Café in Riverdale.
Last weekend, we did Sunday the right way by showing up to this cafe as it opened at 9am, before the crowds arrived. By 10am, most of the tables had been taken and the place had a buzz to it.
We were there for brunch, but we are going back next time for cocktails. They have a happy hour between 4pm and 7pm and the cocktails menu is divine!
The breakfast was heavenly. Craig did moan about the small-ish portions, and I must admit, it also crossed my mind when the waitress brought over the plates, but my scrambled-egg with ham, cheddar & cauliflower definitely filled me up (Craig stole my sourdough, the gluten-thief). I left completely satisfied, excited to return.
They also have an array of baked goods which I didn’t even look at because (sadly) I knew there wouldn’t be anything gluten-free. The life struggle. If District brought out gluten-free options, I think I would be there pretty much every week. If you aren’t gluten-free, you should go baked-good-crazy here.
