Conveniently located, we found this place again when we returned to Calgary (it had been 3 years since our last visit). This time we had a delicious lunch. Love all the vegetarian options and good food.

This cafe offered basic foods for breakfast - more bagels and bunwiches than proper eggs and bacon. Good options for more cereal/quick breads and fancy coffees.

This is old school... Historic building, wiggly, woggly interior, cool but antique-bedecked decor, great coffee, great food, nice people. I love it, people love it, and what's not to love about it?

I love their coffee. The food is pretty good but I usually go just for the coffee. It's tucked away and finding parking can be a bit tricky. But it's worth it. I make a special point to go here.

Bumpys is AWESOME! The coffee is delicious and you have to try the muffins in the morning when they are fresh out of the oven. The best part about Bumpys is Claire, she is amazing always cheerful and is amazing with names. I don't know how she does it.

Dont think of coming over to Bumpy's only for a Cup of Cofffee. If you did not try the Muffin then you have really missed something. Its a SIN of not asking for the muffin when at Bumpy's. I am a foodie and frequent traveller, have had muffins at different places.. But what they made was too good.

If you're looking for a light breakfast, this is the place to go! Breakfast paninis, wraps, gluten-free muffins, and oatmeal are just some of the choices they have! You can also get mac-n-cheese and shepherds pie for breakfast or lunch! The cashier was super friendly and welcoming to everyone who came in the place! My husband and I each ordered... More

Always a great stop. Stopped in for coffee and cake break after shopping at MEC. Wished we hadn't already had lunch as the spit pea and ham soup looked and smelt yummy. Food always tastes home made with care and good ingredients. The coffee is always delicious. I had a decaf latte - perfection!

Love this little place! I'm a coffee snob - for sure. I like really good coffee and Bumpy's never fails. Whether grabbing a coffee to go, or meeting a friend or colleague, Bumpy's is a great place to check out!

A friend and I dropped in for coffee just before closing, looks like the small town cafes of years ago (I grew up in Saskatchewan), and the food looks good. Our server was super pleasant and helpful and it felt like a quiet haven from a busy outdoors. We liked it and will be back for lunch!
