Medicine Hat is a lively little city- and its coffee fueled! As the weather starts to warm up and people start to spend more their days outside again, it’s the perfect time to visit one of Medicine Hat’s many cafés. Grab a drink and a snack from one of these top cafes - or better yet, try something from all of them!
Mad Hatter Coffee Roastery is a small local café with big flavour. Located in downtown Medicine Hat, they are constantly developing a repertoire of fun baked foods, drinks, and desserts. Some delicious inventions are the Mint chip Matcha, S’mores Nanaimo bars, cheddar spinach bacon danish, white chocolate-chip macadamia nut whoopsie pies, and savory ham & swiss rolls that look like cinnamon buns. Don’t let their fun concoctions fool you, they take coffee seriously. They offer a variety of roasts, and have just introduced the Ethiopian Werka Dark Roast , the Black Honey Costa Rica, and the Colombia El Rosal Blend. They also often collaborate with other small businesses, launching creative products such as the ‘Cuppa Joe Soap’ (who wouldn’t want to smell like coffee!). They are currently open weekdays from 8:00 am-4:00 pm, and weekends from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Station Coffee Co. is a staple in the historic downtown of Medicine Hat. They serve all the classic café drinks, handcrafted espresso, tea, and coffee and all combinations. Their coffee is Fratello & Bean There Roasting Co. and it’s a notable favorite. Station Coffee Co. consistently serves delicious treats alongside their coffee - mini egg cheesecake, banana streusel muffins, and perfectly baked croissants by Frosted Sweets Bakery. Station Coffee Co. is open Monday- Friday 7:00 am to 5:00 am, Saturday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, and Sunday from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Café Verve prides itself on their skillful drinks and delicious in-house baking. What sets Café Verve aside is their artistic community atmosphere, their walls adorned with local art, and their floors often hosting live music. In addition to their coffee and drinks, Café Verve has a filling savory menu- Chicken Brie, Chickpea ‘Egg’ Salad, House made Quiche, and their Deluxe breakfast sandwich. Plus, the daily-house-made soups are perfect for a cold day. They are open Tuesdays-Fridays from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm and Saturdays from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm.
After taste-testing all the coffee in the area, stay at the Home Inn Express Medicine Hat. The Home Inn Express is conveniently located to the major highways, and have comfortable, clean rooms- and a 24 hour coffee bar if you still need your extra coffee fix!
