Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters in Calgary, Alberta
From Phil & Sebastian’s East Village location.

Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters

Phil & Sebastian actually has a really cool background story, and it’s a company founded by two engineers.

They roast their own coffee at their roasting facility attached to their East Village café, and you can actually do a roasterie tour!

They’ve got several locations across Calgary, each with their own different style and aesthetic – I love the Marda Loop and Stephen Avenue locations.

I adore their Dulce Latte, which features a double shot of espresso, steamed milk, and dulce de leche.

LOCATION: Various locations

Monogram Coffee

Monogram is definitely one of the coolest coffee chains in Calgary, and each of their locations has its own industrial charm.

They roast their own coffee, which they serve alongside coffee from other local roasters.

Go for their classic Batch Brew (using seasonal batch coffee) or try one of their seasonal drinks, like their Almond Blossom Latte (with homemade almond floral syrup).

If you visit their Britannia location, you can get their Espresso Milkshake, which is blended with locally-made Made by Marcus vanilla soft serve!

Fun fact: Monogram actually started out as a pop-up coffee cart, and they now have a few locations across Calgary, including their OG location in Altadore.

LOCATION: Various locations

Analog Coffee

Analog serves up their own locally-roasted coffees, with beans sourced directly from growers.

This beloved local coffee chain has 6 locations across Calgary, with a few more in the works.

My fave is their Mahogany location – it’s super bright and cute!

LOCATION: Various locations

Rosso Coffee Roasters

Rosso was actually one of Calgary’s first specialty cafés, and they now serve up their delicious locally-roasted coffees at 5 locations across Calgary.

Their Inglewood café is their flagship, and my fave locations are the Tuxedo and 17th Avenue locations!

I love that they also use eco-friendly bags for their coffee beans, which are made with compostable and renewable materials!

LOCATION: Various locations

Euphoria Cafe

Euphoria is a family-owned café serving up locally-roasted coffee from Rosso Coffee Roasters, fresh house-baked pastries, and made-to-order sandwiches.

I love that they offer all kinds of different internationally-inspired creations, from their drinks to their food.

You’ll find fun drink creations like their Australian Iced Coffee, Vietnamese Affogato, and Blood Orange & Espresso Sparkler.

They also source pastries, breads, and other goods from other local businesses in Calgary, which I think is really cool!

They have food options for a variety of diets, whether you’re gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, paleo, or keto.

LOCATION: 8 Varsity Estates Cir NW #110, Calgary, AB

Pastries and coffee at Philosafy Coffee in Calgary, Alberta

Philosafy Coffee

Philosafy is a cool and cozy spot in the Beltline neighbourhood with all the industrial vibes, and their front patio is adorable.

You’ll find all the classic espresso drinks, alongside fun drinks like their Nitro Chai (amazing), Lavender London Fog, or Beetroot Latte.

They roast their coffee in small-batches using ethically and consciously-sourced beans from around the world, which is pretty cool for such a small and independent coffee shop!

They also name their beans after different philosophers, which is fun.

LOCATION: 632 17 Ave SW, Calgary, AB

MobSquad Café

If you’re looking for a great spot in Calgary to get some work done, MobSquad is the perfect coffee shop to visit.

They’ve got plenty of seating, including booths, shared tables, and bar seats, with tons of outlets to charge all of your things.

There’s also free wifi and a ping pong table if you’re up for a game or two.

We stopped in before grabbing lunch, and Adam and I enjoyed a v delicious cup of their Mocha Latte.

If you’re looking for even more great views in the city, you’ll definitely want to visit the Calgary Tower.

LOCATION: 150 9 Ave SW #2100, Calgary, AB

Gravity Espresso & Wine Bar

This family-run business serves up Phil & Sebastian brews and homemade goods by day, and local wines and craft beers by night.

They make some of the best carrot cake in Calgary, if you’re a fan of carrot cakes!

You can find them in the Beltline (my fave), Inglewood, and Eau Claire neighbourhoods.

They also host live performances at their Inglewood location several nights a week, if you’re in the mood for live music!

LOCATION: 909 10 St SE, Calgary, AB

    Wish you had included Lil E Coffee Cafe on your list! It’s the coffee shop with the biggest heart in Calgary! It is a wonderful cafe located in the brand new and beautiful atrium of the Ampersand building downtown. Most importantly, Lil E provides employment and training opportunities for individuals with special needs.
