Chinook is meant to provide people with a reprieve from the mall experience. It features materials like barn wood, brick and steel to give it a rustic, yet fresh look.

Chinook is stacked with espresso equipment; featuring two La Marzocco Mistrals with custom made Strada MP paddles. We use Anfim grinders and also have a Kees van der Westen Mirage Lever machine that we use presently for tastings and demonstrations.
Our menu is constantly changing with the seasons and mirrors our coffee program.
Our food philosophy is quite simple. There’s peace of mind in knowing where our food comes from – that the ingredients we use are from small, quality-driven farms, mostly located right here in Alberta. These ingredients are usually only found in high-end restaurants (accompanied by high-end restaurant prices), but we’re committed to using these same artisanal ingredients in a casual café menu. Here are some of the producers we work with: Vital Greens, D Dutchmen Dairy, The Fresh Squeeze, Coco Karamel, Winter’s Turkey, Ewe-Nique Farms, Sylvan Star Cheese, Highwood Crossing, Yum Bakery, Valbella and Sidewalk Citizen.
Chinook features a variety of baked goods, treats, sandwiches, soups and salads. We bake most of our baked goods ourselves daily in the (very small) Chinook kitchen.
Our friendship with Aviv Fried started back in 2008 and we’ve been working with him and his bakery, Sidewalk Citizen, ever since. Over the past year, we decided to work more closely together and offer a wide range of Sidewalk Citizen treats at the cafes.
Phil & Sebastian love a good party, so bring them and a carrier of freshly brewed coffee with you to the next one – we promise they won’t tell any cheesy jokes.
