Edmontons coolest new coffee shop and a Vancouver pop-up with a new full-time home.
Recently opened on Fort Street’s rapidly changing antiques row, Zeitgeist Vintage represents a new approach to vintage and collectible wares, similar to that of Vancouver’s the Found and the Freed. Picture vintage schoolroom maps, transit rolls, salvaged industrial lighting, archival photographs—and typewriters! (During a recent visit, the window display was occupied by several gorgeous 1930s Smith Coronas. Who says letter writing is dead?) 833 Fort St., zeitgeistvintagestore.com
This is the brand’s second concept restaurant since Earls.67 in Calgary (where they teamed up with Ste. Marie Design), and the waterfront location is going to be hard to beat. 1375 Bellevue Ave., West Vancouver, earls.ca
Locals have loved the seasonally refreshing nature of these pop-up-style concept stores for years, but now the brand cements its spot with a new flagship store right in the heart of Gastown. The palatial heritage walk-up is wall-to-wall brick and big windows (it used to house an art gallery), but the extra space means the Latest Scoop now has room to showcase expanded lines in all categories, particularly home decor and accessories—look out for wool wall hangings, thick-braided texture-rich cushions and poufs, ceramic planters, handmade rugs and scads of other finds you’ll want to post on Instagram. 305 Water St., thelatestscoop.ca
Chef Michael Noble—owner of Notable and the Nash Restaurant and Off Cut Bar—is elevating his upscale fare beyond the restaurant with fully customizable menus, plus drop-off and full-service options. 925 11 St. SE and 4611 Bowness Rd. NW, noblefarecatering.com
A group of punk-musicians-turned-diehard-craftspeople (Ian McIntosh, Jay Sparrow, Pete Nguyen, Taylor Falk, Ben Sir, Justin Berryman and Ryan Shields) bands together to open an independent brewery, complete with a tasting room for you and 43 of your closest friends to try their 9% ABV Tripel. 9850 62 Ave., seachangebeer.com
After huge success at Edmonton Farmers’ Market, founding couple Santiago Lopez and Kristin Panylyk open their first bricks-and-mortar location, Colombian Coffee and Roastery. The shop features their signature ethically sourced brew, straight from the family farm in Colombia, and bean fiends can watch the roasting process firsthand while sampling house-made pastries and artisanal sourdough toasts. Custom-welded benches with live-edge hemlock slabs bridge the roastery’s exotic offerings with its local surroundings. 1–10340 134 St. NW, thecolombian.ca
