Kriek would be cherry. I assume they're being supplied by the Kensington Wine Market.

Add Lobster to the equation and it is a whole other ballgame

It's a pretty liberal deconstruction of "poutine." It's fries, a creamy sauce americaine (sometimes called a "rose" sauce), mascarpone and lobster. It is one of the most delicious things you'll ever taste.

I've never tried it before, but I've heard about it from various people. It must be amazing.

I went to the Good Earth Cafe just up the stairs from Artigiano in the +15 again.

Had another cappuccino - made by a different person than last time. I'd say it was on par with Second Cup or Starbucks. There seems to be a lack of consistency - at that location at least.

Thanks to this board (and me having to try Artigianno due to the hype), I'm officially there religiously every morning for my Spanish Latte fix.

This is a great thread. I've found a few good new places that I had never heard about until coming here.

No worries mate! I don't know why it didn't come to me earlier as it is one of my wife's favourites. We just bought some at the Coop liquor store.

Basically it's a regular latte except they put a little bit of sweetened condensed milk in it for a little more sweetener.

De Ville opened yesterday at 5pm- soft non-morning opening to get their sea legs, I guess. They're looking at 7-7, 7 days a week for now. A local coffeegeek (one who works as a barista at Wicked in Van when he's away at UBC and who is currently doing some shifts at P&S) declared it "excellent," which is endorsement enough for me. They use Intelligentsia coffees, which are roasted in Chicago and would probably be considered one of the top 3 artisanal roasters in North America. This is the first shop in Calgary to source Intelli (Communitea in Canmore does as well, and further afield so does Three Bananas in Edmonton).

2nd floor of Art Central- I might check it out today.

Anybody heard where the next Artigianno in Calgary is going to be? I heard there could be something going into the new buildings (not yet finished)across from the Palliser (on the south side of 9th between the Palliser and Gulf Canada Square). Can anybody confirm anything?

There is going to be a high-end resto (affiliated with the Ned Bell group I think- Vintage/Redwater etc) in HH1 and it will be open this summer from what I understand. I know that Artigiano intends to open 3 Calgary locations but have no idea where the others might be. Actually a great location would be in Le Germain but that's obviously a ways off...
