    That middle shot is so awesome! Makes me dying even harder for those retail bays to get filled up.

    She Is beautiful. You bet he is kicking himself now for not adding the hotel to the tower which would have given it the additional height this beauty deserved. Oh well. Still gorgeous.

    ^hotel version was very similar in height, no real difference. It was not planned to be on top of what you see here.

    Good thing we didn't get the original version. This portion of RHW would have been a vehicle drop off lane.

    Amen to that. Credo has decent enough coffee but their hours suck to the point I don't even bother with them & instead go to one of the other 3rd wave shops.

    Which one(s)? Most of the other coffee joints in that category DT close even earlier on weekdays (e.g. Coffee Bureau at 5, Lock Stock at 4, Burrow at 2). The only ones I can think of with good hours are District and Remedy, and it's not a coincidence that both of those places serve alcohol.

    You nailed it. Although I don't generally get a lot of coffee "out" anymore I'll head to District or Remedy first if I don't have the time, energy or will to make better coffee myself at home.

    That podium is really really nice. I am so thankful they saved the facade and incorporated it into the new tower.

    Much better than the drop off. I wish RHW was like this to 100 st as well. We need more pedestrian areas instead of making everything about the car.

    Angled parking is good there, the pedestrian realm is not. Unsure as to timing yet, don't think it is funded as of now.

    I agree. No need to stay open past 7 if all they serve is coffee. But if they are offering other beverages and small bites - why not stay open? Starbucks are open later.

    Angled parking is never good on a mixed space, and it takes too much room - not just for parking but because a wider aisle is required than for parallel. Going to parallel would cost maybe 4 or 5 spots but would double available pedestrian space.

    And Calgary. One of the places I really miss is the Higher Ground in Kensington which stays open until midnight. It was a great place to meet people if you didn't want to drink. Though they were licensed (but remained primarily a coffee shop even during the later hours) and served food.

    Most of the time I lived in Calgary there was also Diva's, also in Kensington and even more a pure coffee house. Also open late and also busy with people socializing, studying, etc.

    I think there were a few more but Kensington is where I hung out mostly.

    Edited to add: I just checked the Higher Ground website and see no sign of alcohol at all. I was pretty sure I remembered people with wine glasses (I almost never order alcohol in a place that isn't oriented that way).

    And they're not open until 7, but 6pm. Their 124 St location (which is the one closest to me) closes at 4pm on Sundays.

    http://www.credocoffee.ca/hours--location.html

    (I was actually surprised they'd expanded their hours past dinnertime until I went to double-check & found out you'd gotten it slightly incorrect, unless the website is wrong.)

    I love how it turned out, miss the art deco facade of Swedish Jewelers though It would have been fairly easy to recreate with concrete panels and curtain wall

    They may have changed again to 6pm. They tried 7pm because they were getting more traffic. I'm not sure if they went back or not. Makes no sense for them to be open later.

    All the great coffee shops I go to in London close at 6pm, unless it's a chain and can afford to be open late with few customers. Especially during pub times.

    I'm glad you think their hours are fine & support them. I don't & won't go out of my way to give them my business.

    All the great coffee shops I go to in Stockholm/Orebro/Gothenburg are open late, chain or otherwise, so I guess our generally pointless anecdotes just cancel each other out.

    Given that we're the third highest per-capita consumer of coffee in the world behind only Finland & Sweden (or the Netherlands & Finland depending on study), I'd expect our coffeeshops to more closely mimic the Nordic hours, versus those in a country where the consumption is less than half & the culture revolves around tea & pints.

    They did expand, then retract their hours back to 6pm at some point during the hockey season.

    How exactly is OEB hipster? Apart from the cutesy menu names, the dishes are really no different from other upscale brunch restaurants around the globe. Some of you really need to get out more, or if you're still riding with culinary training wheels then just stick with Smittys.

    Good one.

    Top_Dawg does appreciate Smitty's.

    Their lounge opens at ten bells.

    Convenient for those days Top_Dawg wakes up with killer hangover and needs a coupla beer to level off.

    This menu is the breakfast version of "Culinary Dropout's" - which has been confirmed as the most hipster restaurant on the planet.....which is fine. I am actually looking forward to dining there....and enjoying a glass of 6 buck organic orange juice.....lol

    Telling time by the number of bells is a nautical term. Waiting for it to ring ten times would have been a fruitless task sailor boy.
    Time as marked by the bells

    The use of the bells to mark the time stems from the period when seamen (1) could not afford a personal time piece (i.e. - a watch) and (2) even if they could, they had no idea on how to tell time with such an instrument. The bells mark the hours of the watch in half-hour increments. The seamen would know if it were morning, noon, or night. Each watch* is four hours long and the bells are struck thus:
    Mid Morning Forenoon Afternoon Dogs* First
    0030 - 1 bell 0430 - 1 bell 0830 - 1 bell 1230 - 1 bell 1630 - 1 bell 2030 - 1 bell
    0100 - 2 bells 0500 - 2 bells 0900 - 2 bells 1300 - 2 bells 1700 - 2 bells 2100 - 2 bells
    0130 - 3 bells 0530 - 3 bells 0930 - 3 bells 1330 - 3 bells 1730 - 3 bells 2130 - 3 bells
    0200 - 4 bells 0600 - 4 bells 1000 - 4 bells 1400 - 4 bells 1800 - 4 bells 2200 - 4 bells
    0230 - 5 bells 0630 - 5 bells 1030 - 5 bells 1430 - 5 bells 1830 - 5 bells 2230 - 5 bells
    0300 - 6 bells 0700 - 6 bells 1100 - 6 bells 1500 - 6 bells 1900 - 6 bells 2300 - 6 bells
    0330 - 7 bells 0730 - 7 bells 1130 - 7 bells 1530 - 7 bells 1930 - 7 bells 2330 - 7 bells
    0400 - 8 bells** 0800 - 8 bells 1200 - 8 bells 1600 - 8 bells 2000 - 8 bells 2400 - 8 bells
    Notes: * - The period from 1600 to 2000 is split into two dog watches. These watches run from 1600 to 1800 and from 1800 to 2000. This alternates the daily watch routine so Sailors on the mid-watch would not have it the second night, and, the split also gives each watchstander the opportunity to eat the evening meal.
    ** - The end of the watch is considered at 8 bells, hence the saying "Eight Bells and All Is Well."

    Keg could open in a mud hut next to a crack den and it would have lineups. Keg needs to take the Stage 104 space, maybe even multiple floors.

    And I felt majorly ripped off when Sonny boys apple juice cost $2.50 today at the Boom Trail Cafe. I'll stick to my A&W and Timmy's hangouts, thank you very much. Do hit the Keg now and then tho, special occasions only of coarse. Note; Always lineups at Tim's and McDs, but in cars. Sonny Boys daily bread, Filet of Fish and med fries and 10 timbits. Still like the Big Mac myself now and then and love that A&W root beer. Especially like the coupons in the mail. My Tim's favorite is an extra large steeped tea with two cream and two honey. McDs has good coffee and cheap and I save the stickers to put on my little card to get a free one. Once a week we drive through Dairy Queen for strawberry sundaes and about once a month I drive through the Burger Baron for my favorite, double Salisbury burger. The rest is delicious homemade. Mmmm. So in keeping with the topic, I wouldn't mind seeing more of these establishments at Enbridge Centre and other places downtown. Am I still allowed to participate in the C2E? Lol.

    Joking aside.....looks and sounds delicious. But this concept will be a nightmare to manage....1.) breakfast joints are hard to staff on a good day. 2. Being downtown....,do they subsidize employees parking? 3. This high level of cookery will require employees above and beyond the normal "skid marks" one finds at Smitty's....good luck finding 40-50 of those.

    Reminds me of the old country cooking, not in a good way, of mom storing bacon and any other old fat and frying the living **** out of anything in it.. Seems like all the hipsters missed that generation of sordid eating that should never want to be repeated.

    People will line up for any dreck if theres hipster buzz attached. Just throw terms like confit and bacon wrapped duck fat in it and swing the door wide..

    Also lol at the notion that Edmonton needs some kind of dreck like this transplanted from Calgary.

    Yeah, confit is a staple nowadays.

    Top_Dawg also giggles when he sees ' bisque ' and ' canape '.

    And this one has a first for Top_Dawg.

    Gaufrette potato.

    What the fuq is that ?

    Top_Dawg had to look it up.

    Basically ripple chips.

    From what I am hearing most places are finding it hard to find qualified staff. Even some of the top places.

    Breakfast place for me is Still CORAs. Maybe as I get older I start to look for Valve meals. Not long before I can get the seniors discount. Still heard CORAs is moving downtown though even if KR is off the block.

    On the contrary. Even during the boom, cooks and chefs LOVED the 7am-3pm breakfast craze. No more late nights. No drunken idiots. Was easy to get mom's as servers - they're often off before kids get home from school. Don't make as much in tips, but they also didn't have to deal with all the bullcrap.

    Don't kid yourself - selling $4 coffee, $5 orange juice, and $15 eggs is making bank. Breakfast joints have ridiculous margins as far as the food industry goes. They can make the same $10 return on a $15 plate of eggs with toast as a high end steak house can make on a $50 plate of beef.

    Transparent glazing is a better design choice than using mirrored. The issue people seem to have with being able to see the roller shades is hyperbolized. Get over it.

    Any word on occupation of the ground floor? Appears to be a coffee shop in one area but what about the rest of the space?

    Your eyes aren't playing tricks. I saw them putting the BMO sign on the building a couple weekends ago. It's there.

    So if BMO is there now, I wonder what is the future to the building next door.

    BMO is open. Tellers, on the pedway level, wealth management on the main floor.

    The BMO building is the ground-scraper that soars a glorious 2 stories into the lowest stratosphere. The Tegler building was demolished for this? I say knock it down.

    I still think the old BMO would make for a good department store, say Nordstrom, Saks or even a new flagship Bay.
