Profile Last Updated: June 03, 2008
The attitude at Cadence is that locals shouldn’t have to leave the neighbourhood for good coffee and food. Conveniently located down the block from Bow Cycle and right on Bowness Road, Cadence Coffee is a bright and welcoming coffee shop. Windows that span the entrance of the building create a spacious feeling, while at the back of the shop there is a large, wall-sized mirror that does the same. Art by different local talent is rotated on the walls, and there is a comfortable nouveau-50s diner feel to Cadence.
Good (read responsible) Coffee
For the coffee itself, Cadence uses Oso Negro beans, roasted in Nelson, British Columbia. At Cadence, the focus is on sustainability and responsible business practices, and Oso Negro is part of that. The Nelson company uses fairly traded organic and shade grown beans, so you can feel good about drinking a cup of coffee at Cadence. Pounds and half-pounds of beans are also available at the counter so you can roast Oso Negro at home.
Whole Lunches and Power Breakfasts
Light lunches and other fare are also offered from the full kitchen at Cadence Coffee. As a responsible barista, all the food is made from whole foods, and in some cases, organic ingredients. Salads, sandwiches, soups are all offered for lunch, or try one of Cadence’s power breakfasts, including eggs Benedict, French toast and more.
