Back in April, I wrote an article about the different breakfast places in and around the Montgomery neighbourhood. You can check out that article here, and of course you can have breakfast at the Centro, but today I want to add an addition to that article. That addition is Cobs Bakery, located in the shadow of the Foothills Hospital and the University of Calgary.
Back when I was studying at the University of Calgary, this was one of my favourite places to go. As you can see for yourself on the map below, Cob’s is a pretty quick jaunt from the Centro. While you can get your average bakery fare here, it also offers some rare and delicious treats. Such as the delectable Bread and Butter Pudding.
However, I realise that bakeries aren’t for everyone. Some people are allergic to things like wheat gluten, or milk products. Still yet, some people are hyper-allergenic and need specially prepared food. Well, one of the reasons I though Cobs would make a good entry to the list of great breakfast places near Centro is the fact that they specialise in producing speciality dietary restrictive items, such as low glycemic index and dairy free items, as well as a few items with unbleached flour and no preservatives. And, if you’re lucky enough not to suffer from any of those particular digestive foibles you can just get yourself a bacon and cheese bun.
Cobs is located a stone’s throw from the nearby Foothills Hospital (on a side note, when my father was in Foothills for some minor surgery a couple of years ago we brought him his breakfast from here. MUCH better than hospital food), however there are other locations in Calgary you can check out as well. For the location close to Centro, see the map below.
The Centro Motel is Calgary’s very first Boutique Motel. Located in the Montgomery neighbourhood, near motel village and the Foothills and Alberta Children’s Hospital, the Centro Motel provides stylish, comfortable, and affordable accommodations.
