Edmonton Favourite: The Latest Instagrammable Cafe, Wilfred’s

Aug 2, 2018


We’re all about the Instagrammable Spots, if you hadn’t noticed yet. So, if you haven’t seen this new trendy cafe over on Instagram, you’re probably living under a rock (and not following us!!). Wilfred’s in Edmonton is the new happening place, and it’s no wonder why. It’s so cute! The charming mural above by @VanguardWorks featuring Wilfred himself, is my favourite part of their trendy decor. It’s also the reason why Instagrammers are flocking to their booths. Have you been yet?!

Wilfred's Edmonton

The Coffee:

Wilfred’s serves up our favourite local coffee, so of course, we  love it! Ace Coffee Roasters is taking over the coffee scene and we’re pretty glad about it. If you’re not a coffee fan, they also serve up an amazing matcha latte!

The Food:

They serve breakfast, lunch, bar snacks and dinner. I can vouch for the loaded-up Avocado Toast, the creamy Scrambled Eggs and Kale and Quinoa Salad — all amazing, fresh and healthy for a meal out. Sadly there aren’t too many Gluten-Free options, but we’re hoping that they will get on board and add some to their menu soon! If you’re wanting to have the scrambled eggs, you’ll have to opt to leave out the carbs and just add all the bacon! #ToughLifeofaGFPerson

The Drinks:

While we haven’t had the pleasure of boozing it up at Wilfred’s yet, they do offer Happy Hour between 3pm – 6pm, Tuesday to Friday. Wilfred’s $10 wine, beer and cocktail options should keep you extremely happy! Less alcoholic and more ‘healthy’, they have a fresh serving of juices

The Deets:

They’re open bright and early from 8am till late, 11pm, Tuesday to Sunday. There’s free parking on site in the Brewery District and you can book a table for dinner right here on Resy.

Hot Tip:

Nearby, you can grab a shot of one of our #YEGInstagrammableSpots within the Brewery District, Downtown! A new piece of public art, called Carbon Copy, is making waves on Instagram so while you’re grabbing Instagrammable Photos, snap one with this in the background too!
