Amy Jo Ehman wrote a short article in today's Star Phoenix on neighbourhood coffee houses and what makes one great. She wrote specifically about City Perks, a wonderful coffee house located in the City Park area of Saskatoon.
From her article. I made this list of "what makes a great neighbourhood coffee shop" while sitting in my neighbourhood coffee shop, City Perks. It fits the bill on all accounts. City Perks has been a fixture in Saskatoon's City Park neighbourhood since it opened on a leafy corner of Seventh Avenue in 1995. Inside, it's colourful and cosy, with small tables that foster conversation and, for those who come alone, just enough room for a laptop or a book. It's not uncommon to see a writer tucked away in a corner, composing the next bestseller, we hope.
I've always loved this little shop and have to make a point of visiting more often. It's often jam-packed at lunchtime when they're serving fresh soup, sandwiches, and baking so make sure you arrive early. The forecast is suggesting that there may be some patio lunches in order in the days to come and this is a fabulous spot to enjoy a quick and fresh meal outside.
I’m always happy to answer your Saskatoon real estate questions. All of my contact info is here. Please feel free to call or email me.
