The muffins are so, so good! The staff are so nice and the place is a hidden gem in Calgary! Come here for a quick coffee on the go or a nice, long, catch up over brunch. Great place!

Joined our brother and his wife at this small cafe featuring scones, pastries, and muffins baked on site. We had the scones and appreciated how light and flavourful they were. We also scored some excellent coffee at the same time. Great little place to visit if you are looking for a light lunch.

Sometimes plain, simple and good is enough. One knows exactly what one will get, and that one will pay a fair price. Occasionally, space is cramped but that's just an indication of their success. If you want breakfast without the pretence and hyped up prices, head to Bumby's. It's not obvious where it is located; be careful not to walk... More

Bumpy's has become a staple on my walk to work. Always met with an incredibly warm greeting and muffin its a lovely way to start the day. The quaint atmosphere is great for either a grab and go or to sit and catch up with friends. Highly recommend for those looking for a local spot with some personality!

This little place serves the best coffee in town, I didn't even know it was there until I saw 2 EMS paramedics walking back to their ambulance, and I asked them where did you get your coffee? They told me bumpy's, I tried the coffee for myself and now I'm hooked, ever time I'm around 8 st SW and 11... More

Conveniently located, we found this place again when we returned to Calgary (it had been 3 years since our last visit). This time we had a delicious lunch. Love all the vegetarian options and good food.

This cafe offered basic foods for breakfast - more bagels and bunwiches than proper eggs and bacon. Good options for more cereal/quick breads and fancy coffees.

This is old school... Historic building, wiggly, woggly interior, cool but antique-bedecked decor, great coffee, great food, nice people. I love it, people love it, and what's not to love about it?

I love their coffee. The food is pretty good but I usually go just for the coffee. It's tucked away and finding parking can be a bit tricky. But it's worth it. I make a special point to go here.

Bumpys is AWESOME! The coffee is delicious and you have to try the muffins in the morning when they are fresh out of the oven. The best part about Bumpys is Claire, she is amazing always cheerful and is amazing with names. I don't know how she does it.
