The beans can be ground and bagged to suit your home brewing machine, or sit inside and enjoy a freshly-brewed cup. Let yesterday’s frets and today’s concerns ease away into gentle waters at Poolhouse Cafe & Roastery.
Local Tip: Follow the rich, toasted aromas wafting out onto the street!
The Copper Leaf Cafe
Every latte, americano, macchiato and mochaccino is made with authentic Italian espresso. Be sure to browse the menu for more creative, caffeinated beverages — the owner has some sweet ideas brewing. And, beautifully decorated charcuterie boards are always an option for pre-order.
Local Tip: Take a peek at the mini market along the windows. The owner features local artists and creators in Medicine Hat!
Nosh. is a modern coffee shop beaming with energy. It offers quality sandwiches, salads, soups, and snacks. Hot or iced coffee and alcoholic cocktails are made to serve. Located inside the Kolab+ building along Second Street, where a handful of businesses co-exist, you can Nosh. until your heart’s content.

Station Coffee Company
A hip shop with exposed brick walls and an always buzzing espresso machine. The baristas have some impressive creations up their sleeves, including The Root Beer Godfather, a chilled concoction made up of local Hell’s Basement Brewery’s root beer, two shots of espresso, and a little bit of cream.
Local Tip: This coffee shop expanded and doubled its seating area in 2023. Check out the new space!
