I only heard about this place an hour before I had to leave town, so I did not get a chance to hang out there long. Which really sucks, because I loved it. Really cool place, with lot’s of light, interesting layout and really nice people (I guess that is redundant since we are in Canada.) They have a strong machine, good barista’s and very good coffee. If this was Seattle, it would have a hard time lifting with the heavyweights, but for Saskatoon this is a great choice.

Broadway Roastery

Posted on 16 October 2012 by mattbaker

614 Broadway Avenue
Saskatoon, SK

Review -

There was a lot of hype around this place. Everyone in town told me I would like it and it has the look of a great shop. Cool layout, lot’s of interesting people and great light, but the coffee itself did not hold up to the local hype. It was mediocre and not very flavorful. For being a roaster I expect more. They have good food there and is a decent place to hang out. Beware though, they have a “one hour hang policy” that requires you to spend more money if you want to stay longer. I am not a big fan of that, but understand why it exists. I would recommend to go to a different place for coffee, but if you want to hang out in a cool spot for an hour, this will suffice.

Java Express

Posted on 16 October 2012 by mattbaker

23 Main Street North Moose Jaw,
SK S6H0V8, Canada

Review -

No fault of Java Express, but Moose Jaw is not the place for coffee. Java is a coffee shop, but the coffee is not very good. Your main questions should not be where to get the good coffee. It should be why the hell are you in Moose Jaw? To Java’s credit, they have a nice shop with decent food and lot’s of space to chill and study. Get the drip or better yet, head to Tim Horton’s and try and figure out why Canadian’s love that place so much.

Urbanground Coffee House

Posted on 27 September 2012 by mattbaker

167 Central Avenue North
Swift Current, SK S9H 0K9, Canada

Review -

Urban Ground Coffeehouse is a little sanctuary in the middle of a big shit pile. I don’t want to say Swift Current sucks, I mean to say it really sucks. Urban Ground is where everyone goes to hang and get some decent coffee. I have had many cups of coffee there and it always ranges in quality. I have a pretty good cup there, but more often then not it is very average. The food selection is limited, but they do have internet and a steady stream of people coming in and out. The most important thing is not the quality of the coffee, but that there is a decent place in this frozen tundra.
