New Caffe Artigiano open (Cgy)

John Manzo | Jul 26, 2009 05:06 PM

Calgary's second Caffe Artigiano opened a couple of weeks ago in the Shell Centre at 4 Ave and 3 St SW; there is an outside entrance to the cafe on the NE corner of the building which is actually at 3/3 SW. Today, the only way to access it was from this outside entrance which is not yet signed and this may account for why, despite 12,000 people at the Folk Fest a few minutes walk away at Prince's Island Park, I was one of only three customers there today around 4pm while the original location 2 blocks south was relatively packed.

This new location does not have a clover but otherwise the menu is the same. I prefer it to the original because even though the first one is in the glorious Centrium building it is always too hot in there in all seasons; this new location is not as pretty but it has both excellent airflow and palpable AC. Hours at both locations are the same incl 8-5 Sundays, so check it out.
