Finally! I got to check out my most anticipated coffee shop opening in Edmonton since I’ve arrived. I’ve been a ACE-fan since I first found their coffee at Lock Stock (see how I gush about them here), and then subsequently at Coffee Bureau (here). I also blogged about three new coffee shops opening up in our hood and had yet to try. Well, √. One has been checked off the list and of course, I had to start with Ace Coffee Roasters.
Basically, I told Craig I want this coffee shop in my house. Don’t you feel like some of the latest coffee shops give you all the home decor inspo you’ll ever need? This space is trendy AF. The industrial feel blends perfectly with the all-marble counter that I have been dreaming of since we left. The little nooks created with raw wood stools and tables are perfect spots to spend an hour catching up with a friend. And so I did just that this Canada Day morning.
Included in their new space is a dedicated retail area for Caffe Tech, a shop boasting my dream coffee machine plus others from commercial to residential options (Hint hint, Christmas is coming soon).
Now let’s get to the good stuff. The coffee, as we know already, is great! If you’re a fan of Lock Stock and Coffee Bureau, you’re automatically a fan of ACE.
They had a variety of baked goods, including chocolate croissants and doughnuts. Sadly, nothing gluten-free, but I was reassured that they were perfectly decadent by my gluten-eating coffee date. I’m holding thumbs that they introduce some gluten-free treats in the future.
Located just past La Boule Bakery, near Whyte Avenue, our GPS took us the around the block twice. But our GPS had failed us twice that morning already, so it is not ACE’s fault. That being said, it is ‘out of the way’, two roads back from Whyte Avenue, in a quieter street. But I feel like this works to it’s advantage. In fact, I love the calmness of the space.
