Without Papers

Once you walk up 2 flights of stairs you are welcomed to sit at any table in the location. Their menu has quite a few options so it took us a while to look over. We have heard a lot about Without Papers and we decided to try it out.

The Interior

There are tables to seat maybe 60 people, and it is all open to the kitchen so you can watch the chef throw the dough in the air for the pizza. It has a really cool vibe, plus a huge bonus was that Mr. Magoo, an old cartoon I used to watch as a kid, was playing on the two walls. Brings me back to my childhood.

The Food

We decided to share a couple pizzas.

We got the Let’s Meat Again for $22. It has ground chuck, capicollo, wild boar sausage and meatballs. It is a meat lovers dream, all the best meats.

We also ordered the Tree Hugger for $19. We didn’t get the Black Olives, it has roasted garlic panna, sun dried tomato, red onion and bell peppers. It is absolutely delicious.

The pizza was not greasy at all and it was delicious and amazing.

To finish the meal our waitress suggested trying the Tiramisu for $10. It was delicious, you can taste all the flavours. We had said we would have liked to taste the liquor a little more, but it was really good and made in house. Tasted similar to the tiramisu that my mom makes.

The Service

The employees were very helpful and kind. We got our food in a timely manner and everything was delicious.

The Hours

Monday to Thursday: 11AM – 10PM

Friday to Saturday: 11AM – 12AM

Sunday: 12PM – 9PM

Parking

There is parking along the street since it is in Inglewood.

Last Words

We would like to go back and try some other kinds of pizza that they have to offer. If you find yourself in Inglewood and would like to try some new pizza, stop by Without Papers.

The Next Page

We headed down to Inglewood to check out this new bookstore that also sells coffee. We have been keeping an eye on Instagram with the progress of this shop. It was so much better in person than online.

The Interior

There are books everywhere! It is absolutely amazing! The walls are lined with books and at the back of the store there is a coffee bar. There is four tables for your to enjoy your beverage. We were talking to the baristas saying that they are going to need more tables with how busy they already are. Each of the tables that you could sit at and the tables the books were on were all different, very eclectic.

The Drinks

On their menu they have a couple different options. It is also amazing that their menu is by donation, so the prices that they have, if you cannot afford you can pay what you can. It is absolutely amazing.

I ordered the Latte for $4.00. They use Matchstick coffee and it was very good.

My wife ordered a Honey Bourbon Tea Misto for $4.24 and it was really good, it was not too sweet. Just the way she likes it.

My daughter ordered a Peppermint/ Spearmint Tea Misto for $4.25 and it was really good. You taste more of the spearmint than anything else.

The Service

Everyone was really nice and it was very busy and they still took the time to talk to us. We even got to talk to one of the owners since it is a family friends friend.

The Hours

Monday to Saturday: 11AM – 6PM

Sunday: 12PM – 5PM

Parking

There is parking out front and down the street. You are in Inglewood so it is all street parking and you will pay, and pay dearly you will.

Last Words

We will definitely be visiting again, my daughter felt in heaven with all those books. So I know we will be visiting again in the future. Especially when they get the basement filled with used books, there will be some hidden gems down there.

Re:Grub

We were driving around trying to decide what to have for dinner, so we drove to Deerfoot City. Their food lodge has been open for a while so we thought let’s check it out. To our surprise ReGrub was there and we had to try it.

The Interior

Since it is in the mall food court, they have a limited space but that space is amazing. They had a giant heart on one wall, hands on another, and words on another. It was awesome. There are multiple tables and the way you can tell it is their tables because they have where to place their food so you can take the optimal photo.

The Food

There are so many options on the food menu that it took us a little bit to decide. After reading each item we decided to try some burgers, fries and onion rings.

I ordered the Heart Attack for $14. It is a burger served on two deep fried cheddar blocks instead of a bun. If you have had past issues with your heart, I really do not suggest this burger. It was so good, but there is a lot of cheese.

My wife ordered the Eureka for $14. It is a burger with onion rings and tomato confit. It is a very delicious burger. The bun to meat ratio was spot on and the burger is absolutely delicious, so tender. Very impressed the bun didn’t fall apart.

My daughter ordered the Pizzamania for $13. It is a burger on a bottom bun and instead of the top bun you have a slice of pizza. She said she did it for Instagram. Overall it was a delicious burger with pizza. It is a very interesting burger, lets just say that.

We shared an order of French Fries with Hickory Seasoning for $7.00 and Onion Rings with Syrup for $9.00. If you enjoy Hickory Sticks then you will love the fries, they taste exactly like Hickory Sticks. The Onion Rings have Maple Syrup and is delicious. You wouldn’t think it would be a good combination but they are a great flavour profile.

The Drinks

As we were waiting they were making these amazing crazy milkshakes and we just had to try them as well.

My wife and I shared the Captain America Comic-Con Milkshake for $13.00. It is a vanilla milkshake with red and blue chocolate and sprinkles, two donuts and a Captain America shield. It is crazy!!

My daughter loves Oreo’s so there was only one she had her eye on, Oreomania for $11.00. It is a cookies and cream milkshake with whip and deep fried Oreo’s. It is delicious.

The Service

The employees were very nice and very helpful. They seat you so that they know where you are in the food court. The employees were amazing, we had questions and they answered all the questions.

The Hours

Monday to Thursday: 11:00AM – 9:00PM

Friday to Saturday: 11:00AM – 10:00PM

Sunday: 11:00AM – 9:00PM

Parking

There is lots of parking all around the mall.

Last Words

We would like to go back and try another burger and another milkshake since there is so many options. I would recommend that you try a milkshake and a burger.

Java The Hut

Our final stop was Java The Hut, a very cozy Star Wars themed cafe located just outside of downtown Lethbridge.

The Interior

The cafe had a lot of Star Wars collectables that were donated by their customers, the owner just started with a couple pieces and then all their customers started bringing Star Wars collectables to add to the collection. There is enough seating for a dozen people, if that. The music was very nostalgic which was awesome.

The Drinks

I ordered a Vanilla Latte for $4.25 which was really good. The coffee had really nice flavour, no bitterness or anything. They use Cherry Hill Coffee

My wife ordered an English Breakfast Tea for $2.50 and it was Bigelow tea, which we have never had before. It had really good flavour.

My daughter ordered a Black Cherry Italian Soda for $3.25 and it had whipped cream on the top and a cherry, which was a nice added bonus. She also said that this was the best Italian Soda she has had in a long time.

The Service

The service was great, we were the only ones in the cafe when we got there. We had a nice conversation with the owner and talked about the cafe. They used to have a little drive up hut and now they have moved into this location and have been here for almost a year now. It was a nice conversation to hear about the history of the cafe.

The Hours

Monday to Saturday – 7:00AM – 6:00PM

Sunday – Closed

Parking

There is all street parking around the shop.

Last Words

If you want a place that you can check out all the cool Star Wars Collectables, then make sure you stop at Java The Hut. Just know, The Force is With You!

The Stoketown Cafe & Cure

Our third stop in Lethbridge is a unique little coffee shop not that far from Bread Milk and Honey. This little shop was called Stoketown Cafe & Cure, this is where Poncho made a new friend named Buff. The shop had some little trinkets for sale just to the left when you enter the shop, to the right there is a giant buffalo head on the wall.

81B92810-664A-4955-A452-650AEC0AC980 2

The Interior

The cafe was not crazy busy which was a nice relief. There were nine tables that could seat four people each, two family style tables and a bar top table at the front that could sit eight people. The lighting was really nice and we noticed on the front wall there was a giant buffalo head. The coffee bar was on the left side and near the back there was the kitchen which was open.

The Drinks

I ordered the Latte with Rooftop espresso for $4.50 which was really delicious. It was really exciting to see that they used Rooftop Coffee Roasters. It had really good flavour.

My wife ordered the Sipping Matcha for $3.50 and it tasted like water. It had no flavour and it was huge, in the past when ordering Sipping Matcha it should only be made with 1/4 cup of water and a little but of Matcha. This was made incorrectly. Then we had the girl make a Matcha Shot and it was so gritty and there was no flavour at all. It was super thick and not in a good way.

My daughter ordered a Matcha Latte for $4.50 and it was so bad. She has never had a Matcha so dark before, there was no flavour and it was just bad.

Both my daughter and wife asked a bunch of questions and when the girl said she was self-taught and that the Matcha often separates, you know something is wrong. We are all about supporting local, but I am sorry Matcha should never be local, buy from Japan because you know you are getting the best quality. The girl had sourced her Matcha from Picture Butte near Lethbridge, but we honestly thought that the Matcha that she might be using is food grade since it is so dark and not the bright green colour like regular Matcha.

The Service

The service we received was good, the weekend manager was helpful and answered all of our questions about the Matcha.

The Hours

Monday – 7:30AM – 2:30PM

Tuesday to Friday – 7:30AM – 7:00PM

Saturday to Sunday – 9:30AM – 2:30PM

Parking

There is all street parking around the shop.

Last Words

We would recommend that Stoketown Cafe & Cure get out of the Matcha business until they do their research and learn how to properly make Matcha and buy a better grade of Matcha. If you enjoy Rooftop Roasters then this is the place to go for coffee, do not attempt to drink the Matcha.

Bread Milk and Honey

Our second stop in Lethbridge is a cute little shop called Bread Milk and Honey, it is located in an old historic building in downtown. When we arrived it was quite busy and loud, it was great to see that it caters to everyone.

The Interior

This shop was really busy when we arrived and there were only a couple of empty tables. There are 17 tables with two big communal tables and a bar top table in the front window. Along the right side of the cafe the wall is all exposed brick and on the opposite wall the menu is being projected on a white wall. There are strange geometric patterns on all the other walls, we couldn’t figure out why they would choose geometric patterns.

The Drinks

I ordered a Big Daddy Quad Shot Latte for $6.25 and it was really good. It got my heart pumping, I felt so alive. They were using their 49th Parallel Espresso, but there is four others  roasters they carry including Phil and Sebastian, Timbertrain, Fernwood, Transcend and 49th Parallel.

My wife ordered a Rooibos Honey Fog for $4.25 and she said she could taste the honey. She thinks that they use a dark honey to showcase it next to the tea. It was very good.

My daughter ordered an Iced London Fog for $5.25 and they used Lavender syrup so that is both a blessing and a curse. Thankfully it was not overdone like we have had in the past. It was really good, only sad thing is that they didn’t have paper straws.

Note: After talking to the Manager we found that they use a light honey in their Rooibos Fog and that they don’t actually use any syrups in any of their drinks. The Iced London Fog is a micro milled tea so full of flavour. Also their straws are made of plant based cellulose which is really cool. 

The Food

We decided to try a couple of treats and we ordered a White Chocolate Cranberry cookie and a Chocolate Chip cookie coming to $5.00, we also got a Greek Shortbread cookie for $3.25 which was very sweet due to the sugar on the top.

The Service

The service we received at the counter was awesome, they were patient with us since it was our first time there. We got our treats and then they bring us our beverages which is so nice.

The Hours

Monday to Friday – 7:00AM – 5:00PM

Saturday – 9:00AM – 4:00PM

Sunday – 10:00AM – 4:00PM

Parking

There is all street parking around the shop.

Last Words

We would stop in here again in the future to have another Quad shot just so I can feel my heart race a little again.

Sonder Coffee

So we decided to do a Coffee trip to Lethbridge this weekend and our first stop is Sonder Coffee. We had done some prior research and found that these guys have a great coffee selection as well as some amazing waffle flavours that we really had to try.

The Interior

This shop is an amazing corner location with seven tables and one large communal table. It has a modern style. You can see into the kitchen so you can watch your food be made. The cafe was very busy and full of families since it was the breakfast rush.

The Drinks

I ordered a Latte for $4.00 made with Red Engine Coffee which is roasted in Lethbridge. The beverage was very good, it was delicious.

My wife ordered a Chai for $4.00 which was delicious. It had really good chai flavouring, we didn’t know which chai mixture they used.

My daughter ordered a Vanilla Latte for $4.50 and it was really good. She said she could taste the vanilla and it was a great addition to the latte.

Also on a side note they had housemate almond and coconut milk which was great.

The Food

Since we had seen some images of their waffles on social media we decided we had to try a couple of them. We were excited to hear that they are small liege waffles full of amazing flavour.

I ordered the Peaches and Raspberry waffle and it was absolutely delicious. The Earl Grey butter was a great combination with the peaches and fresh raspberries and mint.

My wife ordered the Pear Walnut waffle and the flavours were so amazing together. The poached pear, goat cheese, walnut and honey combination was absolutely to die for.

My daughter ordered the Strawberry and Whip waffle. The fresh strawberries and real whip were a great together. She would order it again.

The Service

We got our drinks and food in a timely manner, but we really didn’t have an opportunity to talk much with the employees since it was busy.

The Hours

Monday to Friday – 8:00AM – 4:30PM

Saturday – 9:00AM – 4:30PM

Sunday – 9:30AM – 3:00PM

Parking

There is all street parking around the shop.

Last Words

We would go back and try some of the other flavours of waffles since there are more fruity flavours and there is some savour options as well.
