It’s that time of year again. As hardened Calgarians know, we’re about to be inundated with tourists wearing cheap cowboy hats and flip-flops. We’re good with that. We are. Really. Honest. Believe me. As long as we don’t have to wear the flip-flops and we get the occasional free breakfast.
Yes. Free. As in the opposite of TANSTAAFL (look it up, yo). Only breakfast, not lunch. There are so many places in Calgary where you can get your pancake breakfast on it’s frankly ridiculous. And even more that have not-breakfast-but-still-Stampede barbecues. Morning people pretty much trip over these things on the way to work. And then they have a pancake with bacon and a coffee.
Well, here at the Purple Perk coffee emporium we’re all about efficiency. Well, efficiency and coffee. Efficiency, coffee and snacks. Efficiency, coffee, snacks and lunch. And at this time of year we’re also about pancakes. And efficiency. The pancakes just fly off the shelves here during Stampede. Or more accurately, off the griddle. But we’re all about efficiency here, so we present for your breakfast pleasure and efficiency… our Stampede Special: the Bacon Latte. You’re welcome.
Those Sufis were really something, weren’t they!? We have them to thank for the wonderful blessing that caffeine is in our lives. And here at the Purple Perk we have plenty o’ permutations! Please peruse, ponder, pick and pounce. Just don’t procrastinate!
To go with your drinkipoos we have snackipoos. Tasty little treats that ensure your sweet tooth doesn’t feel neglected while you choke down the bitter, bitter truth of recognition. This is your life, and it needs sweets!
You didn’t wake up until 3 in the afternoon. Who are we to judge? All we want to do is serve you breakfast, so come on in and we’ll help brighten you right up!
Honestly, what kind of kitchencafé (what the heck is that anyway?) would we be if we didn’t have scrumptious sides and sassy starters? The wrong kind, that’s what, and we’re not!
No one can agree on the origin of the hamburger, but North America definately perfected it, and ours is pretty good. No ground Emu or anything, but pretty good. Try one, go on, ya know ya wanna…
