Unbeknownst to some, Marda Loop boasts a lot of fabulous coffee houses that offer something for everyone. If you’re looking for a place to soak up some caffeine or rooibos, here’s your guide:
For the Casual Coffee Sipper, Phil and Sebastian
Phil and Sebastian’s in Marda Loop is kind of the OG of coffee in our neighbourhood. Beyond their great coffee and tea selection, they also carry a variety of locally made treats and sweets from outlets like Hoopla Doughnuts, Yann Haute Patisserie, Sidewalk Citizen and Cobs in Garrison Woods.
Location: 2043 33rd Avenue SW

For the Beauty Queen or King, Distilled Beauty Bar and Social House
Distilled is three amazing things in one. It’s a coffee bar, a social gathering venue and a beauty bar all rolled into one venue. One of the best parts? Sip wine, coffee, speciality hot and cold drinks and eat delicious food, all while awaiting a beauty appointment, or just for fun.
