ACE is another new spot to open up in the very up and coming area just east of Whyte. We were lured in by one of their posts advertising doughnuts on a lazy Friday afternoon.
Hours are currently Friday to Sunday (8:00am to 4:00pm). I’m sure that’ll change soon.
The inside is a coffee hipster haven. Great lighting, spacious and several areas to sit at (including benches outside). Everything looks great aesthetically but man oh man, the seats are hard as rock. Your tush will not be happy after.
They’ve got lots of different merch on sale. Love their logo/design/branding.
The drinks menu is short and sweet.
Nothing like a stuffed deer for some interesting decor.
There’s even an area, Caffe Tech, where you can peruse various types of espresso machines, grinders and other coffee equipment.
You’ve got a few extra thousand lying around right?
All kidding aside, it’s cool to see all the different types of espresso machines that exist!
Six pack ($10.00)
Normally, each donut is $2.50 but they had a half dozen special going on. From top left clockwise, we tried the brown butter, Nutella bombolone, lemon pistachio, chocolate, custard bombolone and strawberry bombolone.
My favourite was the brown butter. Great texture and simple. Next fav was the chocolate. The bombolones were decent but needed more filling. We also couldn’t taste much lemon or pistachio in the lemon pistachio.
Cool spot to wile away an afternoon or even to get some work done. Perfect spot to drop by while you’re near Whyte.
