In the spirit of collaboration, we’ve opted to work with our two great Simmons partners Charbar and Sidewalk Citizen Bakery to create our food program. In our pastry case, we offer baking by Sidewalk. We encourage you to visit Sidewalk's counter-service for a full selection of pastries and amazing Middle-eastern inspired hot breakfast and lunch items, or sit down at Charbar to spoil yourself with their Argentine cuisine.
In the summer of 2017, we moved our entire roasting facility from a warehouse in East Inglewood to the historic Simmons building. The purpose of this move was to put our operation right in front of the public, in order to draw our guests into the process and get them excited about our innovative approach to coffee. The centrepiece of our new operation is our custom-built 45kg coffee roaster. It took Phil almost 3 years to design and build this vintage machine from the old body of a German-made 1961 Probat G45. Phil used the original drum and cooling tray but, leveraging his Engineering background, he redesigned and built the combustion system (burner), electrical system (motors, etc.), venting system, and the control electronics. He also wrote the control software.
Come visit us to see the whole process in action! We love bringing people behind the scenes of our operation—click here for more detail!
Simmons is home to our head office and our wholesale and retail training facility. At the training facility, we bring our cafe baristas through months of intensive one-on-one coffee training necessary to uphold our elite standards. Contrary to most cafes who train staff in-service, the strategy of out-of-service training has an enormous cost, but it allows our baristas to focus 100% on the training program, and we believe it equips them with superior skills. At the same facility, we offer various wholesale training programs, as well as home brewing classes, private tastings and more! Click here for our class sign-up or to contact us to arrange wholesale training or private tastings.
We’re privileged to have a cafe in one of Calgary's few remaining historic buildings. If you find it as charming as we do, we’d love to host your private event in our cafe! You may craft the menu to accompany your tasty coffee drinks with either or both of our Simmons partners Charbar and Sidewalk Citizen.

Of course we’re biased, but we think you’d really impress your colleagues by bringing Phil & Sebastian coffee to your next meeting or event. Or double-down and pair it with a basket of sweet and savoury pastries from Sidewalk Citizen. We make the process quick and easy. You can order our 12-cup take-out coffee boxes right from our cafes, and they’ll be ready in 15 minutes. Simpler yet - order from our App with a few clicks.
