Not much open early in the heart of Lethbridge but Penny Coffee House is! Nice selection of fresh baking to go along with great coffee. I was less than impressed with the cinnamon bun but the frittata and breakfast quesadilla was excellent.

Enjoyed the atmosphere - close to the downtown. Good eats - especially the baked goods. Great selection of teas and coffees! Like the mini gingerbread cookie on the hot chocolate - classy touch!

Trendy little coffee shop in downtown Lethbridge. Popular among the university crowd trying to look cool, drinking lattes and and playing games on their iMacs, Food is average soup and sandwich fair for lunch. Desserts however, rate above average.
