Coaldale Bakery – Coaldale, Alberta

For one how knows me well, I love bakeries and Coaldale Bakery was recommended to us by my husbands co-worker. I knew we had to go as they offer famous Apple Fritters and it’s something I didn’t use to love, until now – except for the fact, I can’t find any as good! This bakery is attached to a market and it’s just minutes outside of Lethbridge! It’s definitely worth the trip if you’re in the area!

We ordered a box of 6 fritters and kind of an assorted, we asked for 2-Apple Bacon Fritters, 2-Apple Raisin Fritters, and 2-Apple Blueberry Fritters. I loved all 3 types and I often think about going back to purchase some more – but the trip is a little far!

We had so much fritters and we didn’t know that the Lethbridge Air Show VIP section fed us so well. We had left overs and I must admit, these were just as delicious the following day! We were lucky as I was worried about it getting hard from the exposed air, or even soggy… who knows what can happen with day-olds. But, they were wonderful!

Needless to say, this bakery was awesome! I will be back and to actually sit down to enjoy the cafe! And, I’ll bring more home as well, since they were still good even when they’re not fresh!

Pops Pub South – Lethbridge, Alberta

We were in Lethbridge for the first time, just to watch the Air Show and we loved it. After the show, we weren’t too hungry but knew we had to eat dinner as it was a long journey home. We had a recommendation from an acquaintance to try Pops Pub and we just happened to be closest to the South location, so we made it for pizza! This location is conveniently located within some residential area with the hospital about a block away.

Once we got inside, we knew we had to try a pizza as it’s known for their pizzas. We tried their All Meat Pizza which wasn’t too greasy at all! The toppings for this pizza included ham, pepperoni, sausage and Mozzarella cheese! A perfect combo for any meat-lover!

It also happened to be their Perogy Night and with me loving perogies, I ordered a bunch! We actually ordered 2 different types, but they mixed it together – which was fine and an adventure trying to figure out which one we got! The 2 types of perogies offered are potato cheddar and bacon & Romano, and we topped our selection with sour cream and bacon bits. We also had a little bit of lemon pepper on the side which actually added tons of flavour to the perogies – provided you didn’t put tons of it on. Just a little sprinkle is plenty!

Overall, we loved this place! The food and service was great at a great price too! I’m sure we will be back next time we’re in the area – for whatever reason!

Ramada Lethbridge Alberta

I had the opportunity to go to Lethbridge, Alberta this year to watch the Lethbridge Air Show. We knew we wanted to stay over, so we chose a hotel that offered Wyndham Rewards and ended up at Ramada Lethbridge.

The location is located on a major road which was extremely convenient and quite close to the airport! There’s a set of street lights right into the parking lot which makes it really easy to get in and out of the hotel during anytime of day, including rush hour! Ramada Lethbridge does offer airport shuttles if needed.

The hotel is quite old as it is an old town, but because of that, it is in the centre of many tourist attractions and business centres! The rooms are extremely quiet, even facing the Magrath Drive, I wasn’t able to hear any traffic with the windows closed at night! If you’re here for business, there is a desk in the room which is perfect for you to get things done! There is a business centre on site in the hotel as well.. if you need more than a workspace.

The bathrooms are quite spacious and offers a tub/shower in case you want a quick shower or a relaxing soak. The bathroom amenities are provided by San Francisco Soap Company which is one of my favourite hotel bathroom amenities providers!

The rooms are spacious enough as we’re not really living there during the stay. Basically using it when we need, but these rooms also have a little seating area which is great for just winding down or if you have a visitor or 2, it makes it more comfortable.

The hallways are a little run down and the sound proof between the doors and walls could use a bit of updating, but overall, it was a wonderful experience staying here! We loved every minute of it!

During our stay, there was even complimentary coffee in tea in room, and there was a complimentary continental breakfast in the hotel which was a delicious breakfast offering in the restaurant located in the lobby with a breakfast selection of cereal, waffles, fruits and even some hot food! There was much more pro than cons here!
