Browsing around for some hot chocolate during the YYC Hot Chocolate Festival, we found ourselves by the university at Euphoria Cafe was where we ended up.
Once I walked in an looked at their baked good display, this GIANT Carrot Cake caught my eye. I knew I was going to order the cake with their special Pumpkin Hot Chocolate which I knew the cake would pretty much be my dinner! The hot chocolate was a dark chocolate hot chocolate and the carrot cake was full of spices and perfectly spiced and sweet.
We also ordered a Earl Grey honey tea latte which was lightly sweetened and had a delicate earl grey tea flavour. With this hot drink, we ordered their Vanilla Cruffin which was an airy croissant in a muffin tin! It was hollow with vanilla filling inside. It was amazing! This should be a must try on your list as it’s something different and special.
Overall, this was an excellent place where we ended up. I settled up my laptop, did a whole lot of picture transfers and it there was still lots of space where I didn’t feel like I should pack up and make room for others. There was free parking here as well, for 2 hours!

I first heard of Highlevel Diner on TV as I watched “You Gotta Eat Here”, and they were recommending their famous Cinnamon buns. So, we knew when we stayed overnight in Edmonton, this was a breakfast place on the top of our list.
Nothing starts my day better than with some Hot Chocolate and so I ordered some here. It’s a nice treat to have hot chocolate in my diet as I love it, but often find it’s really sweet.
I ordered their Farmers Omelette which was an amazing omelette with bacon, onion, potato, and cheddar cheese. It kind of reminds me of the items I love in my perogies! These items tastes amazing wrapped in eggs!
Finally, the star of the show, the Cinnamon Bun where we ordered 1 to share. Thank goodness we did as they were the size of my head! It was soft, warm, fresh, gooey and not too sweet. It was the perfect cinnamon bun which needed nothing else with it. It was amazing!
Overall, the cinnamon buns are to die for! There’s a few other places on my “to go list” that include cinnamon buns now as it’s one of my favourite food items. I especially love cinnamon buns around Christmas time as it’s warming, inside and out! So, if you go to this diner, be sure to order yourself a cinnamon bun from here!

We did a lot of road trips this summer and this particular one, we stopped by the University area in Edmonton for some “Bubble Tea” at a place called Dream Tea House. The location of this tea house is quite idea as it’s right on 104th Street! It was easy to find parking and to find in general. There are tons of people here for both dine in and take out!
I didn’t take a lot of pictures while I was in here, but my husband and I each got a drink. He ordered his favourite, Jasmine Milky Tea with pearls. I ordered either the Lychee Bubble Tea or Pineapple Bubble Tea, as those are my go-to drinks… but I just can’t remember what I picked here! LOL! I know my drink didn’t have pearls, as I don’t like them. I tend to choke on them…
This was an after dinner snack, so we only ordered some Salt and Pepper Wings which was pretty good! It had tons of pepper and it was fried perfectly! Super crispy skin and juicy meat!
I like this place for the drinks, I think the wings weren’t worth it, but at the same time, I just finished dinner before heading over here! So, I may have just been too full! The 6 wings were $4.99, which wasn’t the end of the world. I think next time I’m in this area, I’ll space out my meals a bit better, so it’s not so skewed of a review…
