Warm up your winter in Old Strathcona

We love our coffee and treats in Old Strathcona! And starting February 13, you can help us spread the love for all of the amazing coffee shops and bakeries around Whyte Avenue by purchasing a feature hot drink or sweet treat at one of 13 different businesses.

You’ll also receive a limited edition coffee sleeve or sticker designed by artists right here in Old Strathcona at Curio Studio (while supplies last).

Oh, and did we mention that you could win gift cards at all of the participating coffee shops and bakeries? Yeah, you can!

And we want to know which latte and sweet treat are your absolute favourite. We’ll be awarding gift cards to the winning businesses to two voters – even more reason to eat and sip local this winter. (voting will open February 13)
