Have you ever noticed how many gorgeous photos there are of coffee, coffee beans or coffee culture on the internet? If not, and you like pretty things, then google "coffee" and go look at the images. Don't you WISH it tasted as good as it looks in pictures?

What if I told you there is a place in Saskatoon THAT can do that???

This morning I had coffee with one of my favorite humans. Lorie is truly the poster girl for how I wish humanity really was. From the moment we met 3 years ago I knew she was instant family.  From that point on we've been friends on the sister level. She's driven and brilliant and compassionate. I've watched her being taken advantage of, and watched her handle it so gracefully. She gives great advice and I trust her counsel without question. 

A few weeks ago she tweeted to me that we should have coffee at a new coffee place in Saskatoon called Leven's Coffee. Being that she is one of my favorite human's I should have listened sooner!!

Today I met her and a colleague of hers, Tracy, at Leven's and talk about astounded! The coffee was incredible. The ambiance fantastic. The company I got to keep while enjoying the coffee, unparalled. 

If you haven't been I HIGHLY encourage you to go. It's in the Farmer's market building and the very best part is they give you French Press to-go cups! Seriously! Coolest things EVER!!!

They also have a great website! 

I'm nothing if not high maintenance, so wow factor is rare for me. Today I was TOTALLY wowed! Thank you Aaron & Marie for a fantastic cup of coffee! We will be back, and I plan on making Levin's my new guilty pleasure!

And if nothing else, I expect it will get me through many a morning!


  1. they are wonderful there! and their coffee is awesome!!

  2. Truly best cup of coffee I've had in a REALLY long time! The company I kept that day didn't hurt either! :)
