Stephen Ave

Welcome to Phil & Sebastian Stephen Ave -- we invite you into this bright and vibrant space inside the historic Hudson Block building on Stephen Ave, which we share with our wonderful neighbours of ATB Financial. We have also collaborated with Plant for all of our beautiful live plant displays, and Market Collective to showcase goods from local artists.

Manager: Eric Jorgenson

Currently, we’re brewing coffee using a Fetco, paired with a Mahlkonig EK43 grinder. We use a Everpure Reverse Osmosis system to deliver water around 70PPM.
We have a Victoria Arduino Black Eagle, which employs gravimetric technology to weigh espresso shots as they are extracted. We are also using a Mahlkonig Peak.

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 DairySylvan Star CheeseHighwood CrossingYum BakeryValbella and Sidewalk Citizen.

Stephen Ave features a variety of baked goods, treats, sandwiches, soups and salads. We bake most of our baked goods ourselves daily, and offer great grab-and-go options for the downtown Calgarian on-the-go!

Sidewalk Citizen

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.
