What I tried:
Hot chocolate and decaf vanilla latte.
There are 6 locations all together in Calgary that you can visit.
You can buy the coffee beans they use as it is their own brand and it is available to also be bought wholesale.
They also offer classes and workshops that will teach you about home brewing, espresso, steaming and latte art. You can also attend coffee tastings and roasterie tours upon making reservations.
Besides the fact that you can buy the coffee beans, you can also purchase equipment to make yourself a great cup of coffee. From your own brewing kit to espresso machines and grinders. If that is too much for you, they have mugs, cups, books and other gifts you could leave with.
Any of their coffees is what they are known for. From lattes to drip coffee to espresso shots. Since I can't have caffeine, I opted for the decaf and a hot chocolate.
Baked goods, sandwiches, soups and salads are also offered at this location. Most of the ingredients are locally sourced and from Alberta.
The service was normal. Nothing special and very transactional unfortunately.
Sadly, I was in a rush and could only have drinks while I was here. The latte was extremely rich and creamy. Very delicious and although decaf, it was very flavorful and bold.
The hot chocolate was rich and not too sweet. It was a great drink for a cold day. I can see the care and thought that goes into the drinks and in making them.
The first thing you notice when you walk in this café and this location are the plants. I felt like I was in a greenhouse. I love plants and anything green so this was a perfect spot for me. It was extremely modern yet cozy and warm.
From the light fixtures to the feature wall of plants, this place is gorgeous. So refreshing and bright in contrast the a bleak day outside.
Wood panels and interior compliment the white and green fixtures and plants.
As my last visit was very short, I definitely will be visiting Phil & Sebastian again the next time I am in Calgary. Give it a try and enjoy the interior of this place!
