Western Coffee Shop & Chinese Food
By YP Contributor

For the past 20 years, Western Coffee Shop and Chinese Food has been a staple in the neighbourhood of Mission. Thanks to its amazing central location, the shop definitely has become a favourite of Calgarians, young and old. While countless restaurants and shops have opened and closed around it, Western Coffee Shop is busier than ever and recently completed an expansion. It now has a new menu which will, no doubt, please its countless regulars who’ve come to enjoy a delicious and affordable breakfast, and then come back for some great lunch dishes and now supper.

Not only is the diner now bigger, but it no longer closes at 4pm and is open later than ever. It has also added supper service, complete with a savory selection of Chinese dishes. So, if you wanted to, you could get your three meals a day at Western Coffee Shop. This makes me very, very happy.

For me, one of the reasons that I love the Western Coffee Shop is that there simply aren't many more places like it around anymore. It’s a delicious diner with great prices and fantastic service. On the new menu you’ll see that there really is something for everyone. Whether you’re popping in for a coffee on your way to work, or craving the heavenly French toast combo, or wanting to be whisked around the world to enjoy some authentic Chinese food, the new menu is packed with choices, without being overwhelming. Other popular dishes include the shanghai noodles, ginger beef, black bean sauce vegetables, and the curried chicken, which is my personal favourite.

When you sit down for a cup of coffee, you’ll see every type of person enjoying all that the Western Coffee Shop has to offer. You’ll see friends, family, co-workers and yes, politicians, relaxing in a completely comfortable environment that’s all about great food and great company.

If you don’t have time to enjoy the diner’s great atmosphere, it also provides take-out or delivery, so you can enjoy the fantastic options from the comfort of home. But I definitely recommend taking a seat and enjoying the great service. It might not be home, but it’s a very close second.
