I’m loving living in Edmonton so far. The neighborhood I live in is fun and buzzing with activity. Still exploring new cafes and restaurants in the area. Today I’m sharing another location on the Explore Edmonton series which I started last week to share my favorite spots with you (see the first here). It’s a cute little Taiwanese spot called Gama Cafe on Whyte avenue in the old Strathcona district. As soon as I walked in, I fell in love with the interiors. It had a very parisian vibe with mint walls, white panels, crystal chandeliers and pink tufted velvet couches.
To my surprise not only did they serve teas, coffees and desserts but also savory items like risottos , salads and pastas! perfect right? The other side of the cafe had a old hollywood glam type of decor with these huge gold semi circular couches. With light music going on in the background, it was a perfect place to spend an afternoon. I went for the creamy basil risotto 🙂
If you ever visit the city of Edmonton in Alberta,Canada – I would definitely recommend this place. They have even started serving a new breakfast menu from this week which includes waffles, crepes, chocolate towers, kakigori matcha desserts and more delicious goodness.
