Transcend Mercer

104 Street is quickly becoming one of my favorite areas in the city. One of the newest additions is Transcend Mercer, located in the basement of Mercer Warehouse building. The whole building itself gives me a vibe that reminds me of New York for some reason. This is Transcend's third location in Edmonton, with the others being in the Garneau and Argyll areas of town. When I heard that Transcend was moving into the Mercer building, I was pretty joyed since I didn't know where to get my latte fix near school ever since Roast shut down. My friends and I came by for their soft opening last week since it's walking distance from school.

Highlevel Diner

Quaint and homey. Two perfect words to describe Highlevel Diner. From the outside it probably looks like a regular diner but once you step inside, you feel like you're in a cozy home. Too bad they don't have couches to sit on, though. My friends and I recently went here for breakfast but they serve lunch and dinner as well. Highlevel diner also has themed days (Fish & Chips Mondays, Turkey Tuesdays, Ukrainian Thursdays, and Prime Rib Sundays), and I'm pretty sure many know about their famous cinnamon buns! I've had it before on a previous visit and it was probably the fluffiest cinnamon bun I had ever tasted.
