Wonderful Patio in the Summer

La Crema is a neat little cafe located in downtown St. Albert. They have gluten free options, local beer, and plenty of options for food including breakfast. My favorite part of the cafe is their patio in the summer.

I last ate here about a year ago when the ownership changed. My friend and I ordered omelets. They were actually inedible. They were very greasy and had no flavor. I took the time to email the manager after and never did hear back. The waits here are always long. The coffee is okay and the baked goods are alright,... More

I've been going there for a couple of months. A lot of people I know told me not to go because the new management is out of sync and not professional! Well it is sort of true to be honest. Sometimes the drinks are good and sometimes....meh!

A couple months ago my husband and I went in for some coffees. While waiting we were looking at the desert display cases and noticed a mouldy pie. We pointed it out to the staff before leaving. The owner didn't respond to my follow-up email. Disappointed and concerned about food safety there.

Stopped for coffee every Saturday morning before attending the Farmers Market. Never had any food,however, looking at other customers plate,it looked pleasing. Great staff and atmosphere is cozy. Good variety of coffee blends.

Have visited La Crema several times and will continue. Coffee is good, prices are reasonable for coffee, pastries or lunch items. Atmosphere is very nice, patio is a great place to have a coffee and just relax. Nice to see a privately owned "coffee" shop that is successful in St. Albert.
