Coffee Beans - Calgary

Follow up - Sunterra 49th P stock must not be moving fast enough, unfortunately all their beans as of Sunday are a month old.

I noticed that Cafe Rosso is selling P&S beans. Is this a new development?

Coffee Beans - Calgary

Just writing to confirm that Sunterra downtown has an excellent selection of fresh 49th Parallel. This is huge for me - sometimes stopping at Kawa on my way home can be ... frustrating* ... when I'm just looking to restock w/ beans.

* unless you don't mind standing around with a bag of coffee hanging limply from your grasp for five or ten minutes

I blame living a few blocks from a Cheesecake Factory for any oversized pasta portion snobbery.

Too late, I'm coming to Calgary!

Edit: And I should add that the Chowhound massive's food recommendations were helpful, that Tubby Dog is a civic treasure, and the range of coffee that I tried in YYC ranged from excellent to amazing, and I didn't even make it to a P&S.

Anyways, sharing a booth with shower sandles doesn't help one's appetite. Now proven by science.

To add some food content, the pasta at Sugo's was good, my only complaint was that the portion size seemed massive.

Visiting Calgary for a pre-move scouting trip, and was pretty put off by all the shorts and flipflops. I grew up in BC and have lived for the past ten years in CA, and am by no means a formal person. Eating dinner at Sugo's, the flipflopper at the adjacent table, facing the booth/bench where I was sitting, put his flipflop feet up next to me, a "my first time" experience at a restaurant with a wine list.
