This post is actually very late. I’ve been here numerous of times since I’ve first been here. If you were to ask me my favourite bakery – this is it Le Fourmil is an amazing bakery in an great space. I’ve ordered my birthday cake from here, I’ve brought my friends here, my father-in-law, the list goes on.
This particular time I ordered their Almond Croissant and it’s an amazingly flaky croissant with a delicious almond topping with some filling. The croissant has a spectacular texture, and we’ve even tried their chocolate croissant and savoury ones. They’re all amazing.
I’ll never go to a little shop like this without ordering a latte. Their coffees are very tasty, not too strong but they take so much care in everything they make.
There’s plenty of parking here, they used to have a nice space for you to sit down in, but they have chairs outside if you need to eat your purchases right away. Their tarts, breads, pastries, everything is worth a try!! My best advice, keep going back to try everything!

We were looking for a nice place to sit down and do a bit of blogging. I enjoy going to Analog and it is a place that makes me happy, any of their locations. This day we went to their 17th Avenue location.
I love ordering Mocha as it’s coffee and chocolate mix. It’s always a delicious choice. The nice thing about Analog is that they always do their latte art, no matter what! I always appreciate a simple thing like that and I never mind waiting a few extra minutes for a pretty drink.
I ordered an Apple Cinnamon Scone and to be honest, it was rather dry. It tasted good, but it just wasn’t what I would expect from here.
We also ordered their Ham and Cheese Croissant as it was a bit of a lunch during this visit. This was really delicious as they heated it back up, and the croissant was light and flaky!
My other half ordered a Latte which was a smooth and creamy latte and he enjoyed it thoroughly. I enjoyed it as well, especially next to my scone!
Overall, this place is a great place to go. This isn’t our first time here and it won’t be our last. We enjoy Fratello’s coffee! There’s not always a table for you as a lot of people do sit down. We didn’t stay too long but there was a quiet period around 3PM so we stayed until the next pocket of busyness. Parking was alright for us as well since we lucked out with the timing.

I really enjoy doing nothing with a cup of caffeine or hot drink and this time was no exception while in Canmore, Alberta. We stopped in Beamers Coffee Bar as it was recommended by a good friend. Although just off Main Ave, this little establishment is very popular!
The menu is very extensive and delicious. The prices are quite reasonable as it is competitive with many coffee shops in the area. There is lots of hot food as well as drinks and snacks available.
At the end of the day, we enjoyed a delicious flavoured latte and it was brewed really nicely. I hate it when my coffee is burnt or overly sweet, but they have managed to make my latte the way I like it!
I am sure I will be back and relaxing here again as the experience was right up my alley, plus the coffee was amazing!

We were downtown running a few errands this one afternoon, and walked into Caffe Artigiano for a quick bite and some coffee! The cafe was beautiful on the outside and welcoming, so we walked in!
We had ordered a Latte which was not only made to perfection, but they topped it off with foam art. It was really rich, but luckily it wasn’t my cup!
I got to enjoy a cup of Chai Tea Latte which was really good here. It ranks on the top for one of my favourites, although not at the top, it’s still really high up there!
Then, we decided to grab a quick lunch as well, so we ordered their Cranberry Smoked Turkey Panini, or something like that… anyway, they heated up the panini and brought it to our table. It looked and smelled absolutely amazing, and I’m soo glad we ordered this! It had the perfect balance between sweet and savoury!
Our overall experience here was just top notch! The environment was great, service was really awesome, and the location is quite optimal! Best of all, their stuff tasted great! I’m sure when I’m in the area again, I’ll try to stop in for another delicious treat!

I was trying to be lazy and just have a nice cup of coffee. We figured we’d try Phil and Sebastian over at Marda Loop… so we drove all the way there for a cup of latte! It was a busy Saturday afternoon, so the wait was lengthy and there weren’t enough tables and chairs as most of the seating was taken up by people on their laptops.
We eventually found a spot near the front, by the window. I think it’s a winter syndrome when everyone’s got their winter gear out and it takes up a lot of room. So, you gotta get cozy in this busy cafe! At least everyone was friendly!
I just ordered a latte, it was pretty dark, but it’s okay! I love that they always do the foam art on top! It makes me think my drink tastes a million times better with it!
Overall, my experience was a positive one! I really enjoyed my latte, the area was awesome, and the people were great! I do like this location over their Chinook Centre location — even though Chinook does have covered parking and a mall!!
