Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic our services and hours have been abbreviated. We are not currently offering seating for customers; but you're welcome to enjoy some well-intentioned attempts at small talk with the staff and to linger at the picnic tables in the plaza across the alley.
You won’t always have to order ahead. If you’re walking through the oldest neighbourhood on this side of the river, you’re welcome to stop in for a quick treat. We’re unpretentiously brewing coffee that was roasted here in Alberta and you can sit and sip for a minute or take it to go.
Here are the kinds of things you’ll find in the shop on a regular “To Go” basis:
One at a time, by the handful, or by the dozen. Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Ginger, Girls' Night In, Peanut Butter, Lime Sugar (w toasted pumpkin seeds), Confetti. Mini Egg Sugar cookies are available for a while in the Spring, and Snickerdoodle and Chocolate Krinkle cookies available from Late November until Christmas.
half dozen $14.50

This is probably what angels eat. Our deluxe meringues are massive, light, fluffy, crunchy and gooey.

To Go Cakes
Did you miss the cut-off time for your cake order? There's still a chance to get a cake without anyone realizing you waited until the last minute. Each day we make some extra cakes after we've attentively completed our pre-orders. Size and flavour varies. We are not able to customize To Go cakes. These are available on a first-come-first served basis, and are only available when they're finished. Feel free to call the shop during regular hours and ask "Do you have any To Go cakes available?" If you'd like to purchase one over the phone we can hold it for you until you get here.
