“This European style cappuccino bar in Edmonton's cool-art-funk-party area is a welcome member of the neighbourhood. Bright and beautiful space with great espresso, tasty snacks, friendly staff. I also sometimes order food from the attached restaurant Under the High Wheel and they bring it to you in the cafe. The best place to grab a coffee after the farmer's market or a yoga class!”

Nightclub

“Check out their lineup for concerts and music events during your stay. Some are free before 10:30 pm but you need to get their much earlier or you won't make it in by then. You also have to put up with 18 year old drunkards but if this doesn't bother you, you'll enjoy the night.”
