5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink This January

Lemon pudding, dragon fruit ice cream and a spicy chorizo scramble are some of the local eats we’re excited about this month.

Dragon Fruit Ice Cream from Abbey’s Creations

Ice cream isn’t just for summer. And now, it’s even easier to get your hands on some with the recent opening of Abbey’s Creations’ second location. Swing by the new northeast shop (or its original one in Montgomery) to try flavours like dragon fruit and sour cherry.

Coffee from Bono Coffee Roasters

Bono Coffee Roasters opened its new roastery and cafe space in southeast Calgary in December. Bono makes light, medium and dark roasts using coffee beans sourced from Ethiopia. Swing by to enjoy a hot coffee in the bright and airy cafe space or snap up a bag of coffee beans for home. Bono’s coffee is also available for purchase online.
