Afternoon coffee dates at Versus Cafe in Calmar

There’s many reasons why coffee dates are considered to be the most common first date choice. It’s a great way to get to know someone in a casual, low-pressure situation. Even for couples that are well past that awkward first date, coffee dates are still a great way to relax, unwind, and catch up with one another in a comfortable and cozy setting.

Insider Tip: Although Versus Cafe is known for serving excellent coffee, their desserts may actually be the star of the show. Split a piece of homemade cake or a freshly baked pastry – it’s a great way to make the date last a little longer. If you’re looking for more ideas about great local spots for your next coffee date, check out our blog about cozy cafes in the Leduc Region.

Sometimes the best dates are a bit out of the ordinary.

Insider Tip: Under the Sun‘s Date Nights are a big hit, so be warned, they only happen once a month. Check out their calendar of upcoming events to see if you can fit their next one into your schedule.
