Five of my favorite places to grab a cup of tea or coffee in Okotoks
Every now and then I like to take a quick break from Real Estate. When I decide a break is needed, I love to head out into the Town and grab a nice coffee or a cup of specialty tea. Okotoks is an amazing place to live and we have a great selection of places to “hang out” according to your particular mood. I really enjoy grabbing a coffee in a place that has a great atmosphere that helps me think, be creative and to people watch! Fortunately, I really don’t have to venture far in order to get my “fix”. This is my top five coffee shops however there are a number of other places in Okotoks that offer similar services.
Brown Sugar – #109, 235 Milligan Drive, Okotoks
This little gem is situated between 32nd Street and Milligan Road Okotoks behind the 7-11. The hours are fantastic between 7-5 Monday to Friday and 9-5 on a Saturday. Brown Sugar offers everything from fresh baked bread to cupcakes, sandwiches and pretty much any munchies in between. I am particularly partial to their Apple Cheddar muffin! Convenient and reasonably priced you must pop in and try their delights. Oh yes and wifi access! brownsugarbakeshop.ca
Tribal Connections – 41 McRae St, Okotoks
You can find this great coffee stop in the old down towne area of Okotoks. Close to other stores so you can have a browse around at the local offerings and end up here for a well deserved break. If I had to have a favorite, then this would be it. Love the fact that the store has lots of jewelry, clothes and more. With a cozy seating area and amazing food and drink I love to sit back and relax and take in the atmosphere. Tribal also has a front and rear patio area which is fantastic in the summer. Love, love having access to their free wifi which is always a bonus if I am working or meeting a client over coffee. I have two favorites, the London Fog and the Matcha Latte, oh I am spoilt for choice!. Opening hours are 9.30-5.30 Monday to Saturday and 11-5 on a Sunday.
Homeground Coffee and Roasting House – 22 N Railway St, Okotoks
Homeground is literally across the street from Tribal connections. With an outdoor patio area and a small but cozy main floor area, Homeground has a great atmosphere that is hard to beat. The smell of the roasting coffee is also very tempting! The coffee is roasting on site by Rebel Bean Coffee and they have some fantastic organic blends, which are available to purchase from the coffee house and throughout the area. If you are a die hard coffee drinker then take a look at their website and get ordering! http://www.rebelbeancoffee.com. My favorite to eat here is the white chocolate and berry scone which is light and very delicious and I am sure very good for you! HomeGroundCoffeeRoastingHouse
Starbucks – #110, 201 Southridge Drive, Okotoks
A staple in a town is the Starbucks. We do have two and this one is the larger one, the other is located in the Safeway store. Offers a drive through, which is always convenient when I am in a hurry, and appears to be well run and clean. I do have a couple of favorites, green tea matcha latte with coconut milk, and unfortunately the caramel pretzel which is extremely delicious and I am sure low calorie! With wi-fi access and a steady stream of people this is a great place to work. Starbucks Okotoks
Tim Hortons – #10, 18 Southridge Drive, Okotoks
Love Tim’s for a quick stop or meeting up with clients before we go and view properties. With the recent upgrades it feels a little more up market with the couches and fireplace, it definitely has a good atmosphere. I really have to be careful and limit myself to one Boston Cream ..
Free wi-fi access and easy to find Tim’s is definitely a Canadian staple which is great value in any town. Tim hortons
