Fresh Food and a Cute Ambience
We love a coffee shop with a vibe and there is none as ‘vibey’ as the Little Brick Cafe in the Edmonton River Valley.
What makes a coffee shop worth visiting goes beyond just the brew. A great bean spot has an ambience that makes you want to stay awhile. You can feel the personality in the room and the coffee it serves is dark, delicious and complimentary to the vibe.
Little Brick Cafe certainly embodies that ethos, nestled inside a historic brick house that was built in the early 1900s.
Inside, find a classic wood fireplace surrounded by small, but cosy, tables. There’s also a General Store that houses locally made products like greeting cards and housewares as well as basic groceries such as milk and bread. While we certainly dig the inside, the patio is where we really love to spend our time.
You can soak up the heat in the summer months or get cosy near the outdoor fire pit when the snow falls. Wherever you decide to sit for a cup of coffee, the vibe just feels right.
Little Brick Cafe Menu
With a coffee shop, a great menu is almost just as important as the ambience. In terms of the coffee selection, Little Brick sources their beans from their favourite roasters on the West Coast and they are in constant rotation.
There’s also lots of options for everyone, so cold brew fanatics and chai die-hards can come together in harmony.

Little Brick is more than just coffee, though. Stay and have lunch or even dinner (yes, they serve ribs) if you want.
The ingredients in every menu item are locally sourced and high-quality, and pack the flavour in with every bite.
From the fresh eggs in the Eggs Benny to the harvested vegetables in the Sun Dried Tomato Pesto & Cheese Melt to the warm oven baked bread that houses the Grilled Chicken Sandwich — every last morsel looks, feels and tastes deliciously fresh.
A Little Brick History With Your Brew
Another reason to pick Little Brick for your next cup of coffee?
The cool Edmonton history behind the building it calls home. The cafe was actually the home of J.B. Little who owned the brickyard that supplied most of the brick that built some of Edmonton’s most historical buildings.
It was eventually sold in a real estate deal in 2000 and became the Little Brick Cafe in 2015. In 2017, the building was named Edmonton’s 131 Historic Rescue and now offers up a little piece of history for city residents.
So the next time you swing through the River Valley and find yourself needing a cup of coffee, check out the Little Brick Cafe and let us know what you think.
