“Best coffee shop in Calgary”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

I love this spot. There are several good coffee shops but this is my fav. The coffee is excellent every time.

The location is convenient just off 17th Avenue, SW on 9th Street. I enjoy the people that go because there is always a good mix of older people, artist-types, students, business people, and cool hipsters. The food selection is compact and often your favourite sandwich is sold out by noon.

The layout seems a bit awkward. I love that they don't offer wifi because if they did, it would, at times, be nearly impossible to find a seat. I do see too many people still occupying a seat for hours with papers or meetings at busy times. It would be good if the management got a handle on that.

The service is always friendly. Generous outdoor seating on benches. People are always there.

The interior is a bit worn and the seating needs some repair but they have cool posters on the wall that they change out fairly often. The place feels like your favourite well worn comfortable sweater..

Did I mention the coffee? Excellent every time!

“Great coffee for an early start”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

Caffe Beano has been around for many years and the cafe lattes are always good. They use great coffee, know how to make a good hot latte.

“Great spot for a healthy quick bite”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

Sandwiches are relish! Seating was comfy but tight in the corner area. Service fast and knowledgable. Bright spacious feel to the seating area.
