Redcliff Bakery – Redcliff, Alberta

I’ve always got a lot of things going on at once, and I do have a cup series going on in the background of my life so I found myself here at Redcliff Bakery for a letter on my cup. I love bakeries and you’ll often find me there. This one I really enjoyed and the staff was insanely patient with me and helped me with my cup series.

I ordered a drink and needed their logo, and asked for a sticker. Obviously I was successful as I had my drink with an apple fritter. Their pastries were amazing! You can taste the love they put in their baking and it makes this stop worth it!

Another thing that I absolutely love is cinnamon buns or cinnamon anything, so I had a cinnamon bun as well. I loved their baking so much I actually bough some regular buns to take home, and it was still amazing even after I spent the afternoon in Medicine hat.

There’s nothing better than a little shop with people with passion in their cooking/baking and this place was fantastic. The love they have for their food and their customers makes this bakery/eatery one of my favourites. I’d go back, even if it’s almost 3 hours away!

Heartland Cafe – Okotoks, Alberta

I’ve been eyeing going to Heartland Cafe for a very long time. There has been previous occasions where I’ve been there and no one seated us so we walked away. Finally, we went there one afternoon and there was actually some service!

It took awhile before the waitress came give us our menus let alone take our order. So, be prepared to spend an afternoon here if you’re going for lunch, but the food is worth it! I already went there with the anticipation it’ll take a long time from previous times so I started with a drink. I did order their Flat Iron Steak Sandwich with their soup of the day and it was something worth the wait!

We also had a their Ahi Tuna Tacos but we ate it like a lunch and it was really fresh and light. It was mouth watering and tasty.

The environment was great as we sat outside on their patio. It was fun to watch the people go by and I guess it was a car show that weekend so we got to watch unique cars go by. The food was amazing and worth every second!

Eclair De Lune, Calgary, Alberta

We had a fun little stop before heading out to the mountains and went to a “bakery” was the request. We ended up at Eclair De Lune at their new location off of 32 Ave NE.

The staff here are so passionate about their creations and their customers are excited as they’re purchasing their treats. Randomly other customers started chit-chatting with me about how much they bought and how it’ll all be gone within a day. I’m just sitting there enjoying my own treat, the Cinnamon Raisin Croissant but I guess I must’ve been smiling at them as everyone seemed to smile back at me. The croissant was so light and crispy and just the perfect amount of sweetness. The raisins were actually plump and delicious.

We also ordered their Pear Maple Danish which was a delicate dessert that wasn’t sweet or messy. The walnut on top was amazing, the pastry cream was smooth and light, and the pear was still tender yet had a crisp. This is something you’ll need to try and I know I’ll be back. Maybe I’ll get my birthday cake from here next year!

We had so much fun here and like I said all the other customers did as well. It’s a place I can see us returning to for a long time!
