Bonbons, bars and gelato! Calgary’s newest cafe is guaranteed to hit that sweet spot. Ten Degrees Dessert Lounge and Chocolate factory right off 17th Ave is now open and ready for some seriously tasty business.

These guys have been making big moves in the Calgary cocoa scene, using only ethically sourced beans and local ingredients. Not only does it smell incredible when you walk in – because they make everything in-store – you can feel great walking out.

Ten Degrees uses organic sugars and can accommodate everyone from the gluten and dairy sensitive to those with plant-based preferences.

We’re not entirely sure if their cafe is just as sensitive to allergies and dietary restrictions because they haven’t released their menu just yet, but we can’t imagine that they wouldn’t be.

In addition to incredible food and cleaver concept, also got a few really fun events planned for the future, including a paint n’ sip class, a bean to bar event and wine and chocolate pairings.

All things considered, these folks are off to a pretty incredible start, and we can’t wait to see what they do in the future. One thing is for sure, we will definitely be checking it out this weekend. Maybe we’ll see you out there! Enjoy, Calgary!
