We've Come a Long Way, Baby
SugarBowl, located just off the University of Alberta campus, first opened its doors back in the 1940s. Instead of our famous homemade cinnamon buns, students and High Level streetcar patrols were served delicious homemade burgers and fries. Like today, SugarBowl had a warm inviting atmosphere and was a popular to eat, drink and hang out. In 1987 SugarBowl, under new ownership, reopened as a coffee shop offering specialty coffees, lite fare and, of course, the cinnamon buns. The burger joint atmosphere of the 40s gave way to the relaxing Belgium-style café atmosphere with local art exhibits and live music nights.
Over the last 5 years SugarBowl has evolved further into one of Edmonton's premier modern comfort restaurants, offering a full menu, a variety of Belgian and import beers as well as an extensive wine list. Our service includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch and, although our menu has grown to include items like Pepper Braised Lamb and Autumn Harvest Burger, we still offer the best cinnamon buns in the world.
