We heard that Calgary Heritage Roasters was opening their own location and we just had to go and check it out. We decided to visit during their Grand Opening and it was so amazing. We had also found out that they were originally going to open at 10 am and change on the day to open at 8 am. Which was awesome.
They are located in an old building on the edge of Inglewood and it is an amazing space. They have a giant family style table surrounded with smaller tables and a bar top. We found out that all their tables were made from wood that they found in the basement, which is amazing to bring history into their new shop.
Their roasting room is located beside the bar and completely surrounded in glass. It would be so amazing to be there while they were roasting, it would smell so awesome.
In the basement is where all their bags of un-roasted beans are right now. It is a big open space and I wonder what they have planned for that space in the future. They also several vaults in their space. Very cool.
They also have some shelving set up selling their swag at the front of the shop.
TASTE A COFFEE AS WILD AS YOU ARE!
Their menu is very accommodating to everyone, they have multiple different options and if you don’t see what you would like, they can make it for you anyway. Every beverage you order is served in a Calgary Heritage Roasters tin mug, which is a nice touch.
I ordered a Latte for $5.24. As for their coffee, they were serving up a Guatemalan Blend, with notes of milk chocolate, caramel and cherry.
My wife ordered a London Fog for $4.52 and it is not overly sweet which is the way my wife likes it.
My daughter ordered an Iced Vanilla Latte for $5 and she said it had really great flavour.
On a side note, they make all their syrups in house which really adds a nice touch to every beverage.
EATS, EATS, EATS!
They make a lot of their items in house and all of their pastries arrive daily from Butterblock. After looking over the menu and looking at their displayed pastries we decided to get a couple little things.
I ordered a Ham and Cheese Croissant for $4.76 and it was delicious. I got both ham and cheese in every bite. Pastry was so flaky.
My wife ordered a Cinnamon Pecan Cookie for $1.90 and she said it was really good. At first she thought it was a snickerdoodle cookie.
My daughter ordered a Butter Croissant for $3.81 and it was super flaky and buttery.
Since it was their Grand Opening all the staff and owners were walking around talking to everyone and letting everyone know the story of Calgary Heritage Roasters. Everyone was very friendly and excited to see everyone walking in the door. Even as they got busier they still talked to everyone, which we though was awesome.

There is not a ton of parking right now, but the owners said that they are working with the city to get some street parking out front. In the parking lot there is limited spots, so be mindful.
After conversing with my wife and daughter about the area and the shop was located in, we sadly had to leave and head out to do some other errands.
Thus, adding excellent customer service to their credit, the Calgary Heritage Roasters proved every bit a gem as I had hoped. If you’re in the Inglewood/Ramsay area, definitely take a small detour for an excellent cup of coffee.
