Lock Stock Coffee has been my favourite coffee shop in Edmonton for most of the year that I’ve lived here. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram on any of my travels, you’ll know I’m a coffee addict. You’ll also know that I’m at a coffee shop EVERY chance I get, and instagramming every coffee I have. You’ll probably also be sick of my instagramming coffee by now, and while I’m not likely to slow down on my love for coffee, you can rest assured that I know a good cup when I taste it. And Lock Stock’s got a greeaaaat cup!
The Cosy Vibe:
Located in a little basement space, attached to a pub, Lock Stock is a cosy little spot for a cafe. Craig and I both love the industrial feel with it’s red brick exposed wall and iron windows, it’s totally my vibe on a dark, grey morning. My favourite, a Cortado or a Flat White, is always made so perfectly. Sometimes (most times), I even have two!
Baked Goodies & Eats:
While I’ve never personally tried a baked goodie from Lock Stock, they’re always beautifully displayed and tauntingly so. If you’re not gluten-free, don’t even try resist. I hear their scones are up there with Duchess (a high standard to beat). Reading Baconhound’s blog on his scone-tasting had me salivating, and wishing my gluten-intolerances away. If I were you, I would get a scone with that coffee.
For all the South Africans in Edmonton, I also spotted a Malva Pudding Cake! I nearly fell over when I saw it. But apparently the chef likes to make goodies from all over the world. And if you aren’t a South African, you should try one nonetheless — they are too good.
I’ve also had their breakfast sandwiches sans the sandwich part. They happily made it into a bowl, packed with greens and it went down way too quickly!
