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!!

During a visit to see Fiasco Souped Up Food Truck in Calgary Marda Loop, I went to a place for cookies called Cookie Occasion which easily drew me to here as I love cookies.
I got to go get myself another cookie as I promised myself! This time, I got the Triple Sin Cookie and it was sinfully delicious. These cookies are made of the three common Callebaut chocolate chunks – dark, milk and white and they are all mixed into a great cookie dough! There’s really nothing quite like it!
The other cookie we purchased was Amaretto Almond Cookie and within the first bite, my mouth was exploding with almond flavours. These cookies are mixed in with Callebaut milk chocolate chunks, almonds and a splash of amaretto! We’ve never had a more almond tasting cookie before and it was really wonderful!
As much as I like cookies from anywhere, I can not get over how wonderfully delicious these cookies are, and the texture of the cookie is unlike any other. These cookies are a must try if you haven’t done so yet! You’ll see the difference, and you’ll thank me later! 🙂 But, note their hours are Monday – Saturday 10AM to 5PM!

I’ve been craving Sushi for a very long time. To my excitement, Globefish opened up in Chinook Centre, which is a million times more convenient for me than going to Kensington. It is located outside of Chinook Centre, as there is no entrance from the inside of the shopping mall. I find the easiest way to get there would be walking through Shoppers Drug Mart downstairs, or just drive outside around the mall until I see it.
We were lucky to have visited this location with more than 2 people so we were able to order more than usual! We started with their gyoza and they make a terrific gyozas as the skin was thin, the filling was delicious and they pan fried it to perfection!
We all shared the sushi and sashimi platter which was absolutely delicious.
Then we ordered a Cherry Blossom roll which was delicious. It was a salmon and avocado roll wrapped in red tuna! It was amazing!
Even if you’re not a fan of raw seafood, they do offer great cooked rolls, and udon, and other great dishes which I’m sure will satisfy anyone’s tastebuds!
