Coffee, Tea and Brunch
Established in 2018.
Local owned business, handcrafted coffee, brunch with love!
ZCREW is a cute, cozy little cafe near Victoria Park Stampede C-train station/Cowboys area. They are known for their aesthetically pleasing dishes that you can find across Instagram. I came on a weekday to catch up with a friend and almost all the seats were full, so I can imagine them being very busy on the weekend. There is a big communal table with bar seating, some bar seating around the window areas, a patio and some half booth half chair options. One thing to note is that their online menu is not as extensive as their in store one (for example, I wanted to get the matcha pancakes and they didn’t have them on the website’s menu, but it was available in store). I ordered the matcha pancake stack ($16) and my friend got the regular buttermilk pancake stack ($15). It came with powdered sugar, oreo crumble, whipped cream, and some fruit (cherries and strawberries/bluberries). It was also topped with chocolate crumble which I wasn’t a huge fan of (it was hard and stuck to my teeth). The pancakes were dense, almost cake like. That’s how I like my pancakes but if you don’t then maybe consider ordering something else.
All I can say is wow!! These place combined two of my favourite foods: Korean and brunch. It may be a small cafe, but they go big on the flavour! Seating is limited, but a lot of their menu items are available to- go as well. I don’t think I’ve had a more difficult time choosing a dish then I had here. I HIGHLY recommend the Korean chicken and waffles. The chicken was perfectly crispy and the chili/gravy combo was unreal. I was also a huge fan of the breakfast potatoes and chipotle aioli. The presentation of all their dishes are gorgeous and deserve to be broadcasted all over social media. Can’t wait to come back!
This place deserves every 5 star review they’ve been given. I’ve been here tons of times and never been disappointed. Great coffee, great food, great service. Their avocado toast is my go-to- but when I’m super hungry the white hat never lets me down.
ZCREW cafe blew it out of the park! We loved it so much we went a second time during our visit to Calgary! Presentation was on point and the taste of the food did not fall short. Substance and form! Good variety of healthy bowls/salads, brunch options (both sweet and savoury) and all the kinds of coffees you could possibly want. The matcha pancakes and the scotch eggs were standouts.
