The top of the day to you! Have something tasty and fresh, right out of our oven, with one of the world's best coffees or anything else you fancy … you're with friends.


Downtown Lethbridge, Alberta features the Penny Coffee House, the original home of fresh roasted, world coffees. You will be taken care of by Eileen (or one of her capable staff), who has kept the place roasty and toasty since 1993. All complemented by some of the most formidable characters east of Rocky Mountains.

Here the daily hubbub is kept rolling through a constant changing of the guard, bringing in their curiosity, inspiration, hunger and need to either be there, or hide away


On any given day you can sample a great number of World, Free Trade and decaffeinated Coffees: Espresso, Cappuccino, Café Au Lait, Americano, Mochaccino and other amazing combinations, Teas, Chai, Italian Sodas, Shakes Juices or chocolate milk.


We prepare a tasty, wholesome and creative combo of soups, salads, sandwiches and entree daily. You will find a surprising, cosmopolitan and imaginative meal with a most wonderful array of accompaniments.


Every day our Baker gets up before a lot of people go to bed to bake dozens and dozens of pastries, croissants, muffins, pretzels, tarts, cookies, pies & cakes. You may never want to go home to eat again.


There is a kindred spirit between The Penny Coffee House, our regulars and those that have just popped in for the first time. The mix of our fair with music from all over the spectrum and our walk through Art Gallery make a fine back drop for a good take on what's happening. Be it Arts, Music, Dance, Running, Biking, Hiking or the other stuff – life!

In the past we've had poetry readings, pow wows and hee haws! If you want to know what's going on, come in and look at one of the walls or ask? We might not even want to know but proabably know someone who does.
