Meet the owner

The founder of Bumpy’s Café, John Evans, says when he opened Bumpy’s in 2005, it was to meet an unfulfilled need. “There was a real need in Calgary’s downtown for great coffee and great food all in one place,” he says.

Bumpy’s introduced the “third wave of coffee movement” to Calgary, a global movement “to take coffee and espresso to the next level,” says John. What does that mean, exactly? As John explains, customers who have third-wave coffee can expect that espresso shots have been pulled properly, that milk has been steamed appropriately and that latte art is floating in the foam.

Bumpy’s has been the recipient of several awards for its coffee, including the Krups Kup of Excellence on three separate occasions. (Krups manufactures high-end culinary equipment, including coffee and espresso machines.)

The ambiance at Bumpy’s is perfect for lounging over the newspaper for hours (or scrolling on your device screen). The baristas at this restaurant and café are the best in the latte art business. The masala chai latte, made by steeping chai tea and steamed milk with just the right amount of sugar, is a creamy, spicy delight. Located in the Beltline district, this café is sure to become a favourite.

It’s a way-cool café serving new-fangled diner dishes, but this place also takes its coffee service quite seriously. Baristas pour perfect cups of espresso, cappuccino and artful lattes lovingly finished with leafy foam swirls.
