When we learned about our next stop in the vlog series we were excited to understand this unique local concept for coffee and clothes.
Welcome to the Barking Buffalo Cafe and Salgado Fenwick. Located at 10842 - 124 Street this shop can be found with the Salgado Fenwick sign and a Buffalo by the door with a moon in the window. Being on the busy street of 124th there is plenty of parking and the bus routes for the #3, #5 and #7 are all within walking distance.
Once inside the shop you’re greeted by the friendly staff who also seem to know their regulars by their first names and always smile and wave to them as they enter. The majority of the clothing are made by the Salgado Fenwick team, we were lucky to get some behind the scenes look at the pressing process, if you’re looking for something for your favorite kid they have selections for them as well! And as a lover of Almond milk lattes Nicole was happy to find out that all the coffees regardless of “specialty” milk/mylk are the same price.
Some fun facts about this dynamic duo location, everything sold in the store is Canadian including some local Edmonton artists work. This is the only location in Edmonton to sell Pilot coffee which is a Canadian coffee roaster out of Toronto - if you want to learn more about it chat with Kassie, she is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about coffee. Want your coffee to go? The cups, straws, napkins all of it is compostable! They also offer free wifi and are currently open a little later on Wednesdays and Thursdays for the Holiday season.
