The fall activities around Camrose probably have you a little hungry. Luckily, there is great local dining around many corners of Camrose and outside city limits.
You can start your day off right with the many local cafés. Between places like Fiona’s, the Lefse House, or a long list of others, you can get your morning fix of something sweet, something savoury, or your fix of a caffeinated beverage- it’s not just coffees you’ll find in these cafes: many offer specialty or blended coffee drinks, too. You can consider many of these cafes for later in the day, and peruse their lunch menus for handhelds, light snacks, soups, or salads.
Your evening plans can conclude with a visit to historic downtown where you’ll find gastropubs, sports pubs, excellent local eats, and best of all: dessert!
Cafes – Breakfast & Lunch
Fiona’s, Downtown Camrose
You can head to Fiona’s for a few different types of experiences: before you order, browse the locally made gifts; then take a look through their handmade baked goods; to finish things off, choose your cup of joe from their Fair Trade Coffee menu, or relax with tea. All of their flour is organic, and many of these tasty baked treats like pies, breads, or cookies can come as gluten-free, too. On the more savoury side of things, Fiona’s also creates homemade soups, sandwiches, and breakfast pastries.

Some delectable lunch items with that twist include their Lefse Wrap (your choice of protein), Norwegian Nachos, Swedish Meatballs, or the Smoked Salmon Plate. But a must try for any coffee lover/connessier is their Norwegian Coffee, guaranteed to put a jump in your step.
