Off the beaten path, tucked in between Calgary’s Bow River and the Trans-Canada Highway, sits Angel’s Cappuccino Café, a favourite hangout with the locals that has been a solid fixture for 15 years. What started as a food truck, turned movable structure, turned permanent café has become a symbol of resiliency, hard work and commitment to community. Owner Cathy Jacobs has had her share of challenges over the years having to relocate the entire cafe nine meters from a power pole, building an entirely new eatery in the existing space and having patio furniture stolen. But nothing quite compared her for the pandemic. The day after they received a large food shipment, restaurants were forced to shut down resulting in this team having to shift gears quickly. They repurposed the items by cooking and handing out food to those in need. The café offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and dessert plus acts as a respite for those looking to get some fresh air from the Children’s Hospital, Foothills Hospital and Tom Baker Cancer Centre. Watch for live music and other events as restrictions allow. We recommend dropping in to grab a turkey cranberry brie sandwich or beloved B.L.T. and finding a spot outside in Edworthy Park, across the river, or along the riverbank.
