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!

I love going to little towns and I often find myself going to Okotoks as it’s closer for me to go there than downtown Calgary! A super cold evening, just around Christmas I parked outside 94 Take the Cake without knowing it. So, as I was done my evening, I stopped in before heading home.
I had to wait forever for the lens on my camera to thaw out, so we get a foggy look yet mystical carrot cake! I really wanted to eat the carrot cake, so I dug into this huge piece of cake that was perfectly cooked, well spiced and just amazing! The cream cheese was divine and it was just the perfect snack for the drive home! This slice is big enough to share, which I appreciate!
Then came my Latte, I really needed this to warm up my fingers. I of course was still wearing a dress and the owner of the shop came and put this giant fluffy blanket over my lap and said I was silly. She looked at me as though I was 5 years old, but her love for me really showed me she cared for her shop and customers. It wasn’t that cold but it was a December night in Alberta! The latte though was really tasty. I didn’t need to do anything to it and it was the perfect compliment to my carrot cake.
This bakeshop was so warm and inviting, and the coziness to the shop was so hospitable. It’s a place I can see myself being in all the time if I lived in this town. The owner told me that the original “house” that the shop is in was an cold police station! How neat is that!! This cake shop is a little tucked away but it’s a must go to! Their cakes are amazing and I think next time I need to order a cake if my friends don’t want to bake one for me, I will get it from here!

I love going to Jasper. I love going there unprepared… I seem to always do that. I’d be the idiot walking around in a dress and sandals while it’s snowing. It hasn’t failed me and I guess I just won’t learn that lesson. Now with that said, I was freezing and wanted to warm up in a cafe, and we stumbled into The Other Paw Bakery and Cafe where the lineup was massive, but they move the line fast! It helped as no one was in line for ice cream!
I ordered their Latte and enjoyed it thoroughly. We sat at a table near the back where it wasn’t as busy and enjoyed our breakfast/lunch/snack there! The latte was spectacular, and the coffee flavour was really amazing!
I love pineapple and and anything Hawaiian or tropical, so I had to get their Aloha Muffin. I’m not even too sure what’s in it, and I didn’t really care. I know this muffin was super moist and soft, fresh and delicious! It was still warm! I was in love with this muffin!
What my hubby had was a Chai Tea Latte, he’s more the type that likes to change it more than I do!! Weirdly, I introduced him to Chai.. The chai here was tasty and spicy, creamy and hot! Just the way I liked it. But, I can’t have my latte and his chai. I’d be asking to stop at the side of the road every hour if so!
He decided he would eat Jalapeno Pizza Pretzel, which wasn’t surprising to me. It totally sounded like what he would order! They heated it up for him and he really enjoyed his quiet time with his order. It wasn’t over spicy or anything, this place knows how to make amazing food and drinks!
Overall, this place is amazing. I even recommended it to friends when I hear people are going to Jasper. I love this place and it’s good for any time of day. We even bought a loaf of bread on the way home and it made excellent sandwiches for lunch!
