Quench your thirst at these stops in Saskatoon

I was really excited when one of my dearest friends decided to visit me in Saskatoon this summer, all the way from Bali Indonesia.

She and I have laughed, cried and tried to solve the world’s problems over drinks throughout the years, from yukaflux during our college years to warm cups of luwak coffee in the Balinese sun this past November. So I thought it would be fitting for her first time in Saskatoon, to tour the city over drinks, getting to know a few of our cool neighbourhoods and hangouts, while catching up during her short stay.

Saskatoon in 24 hours: Great food, humble people, calming pace

I didn’t know much about Saskatoon before this trip. I knew that it was one of the biggest hubs of agriculture in Canada and that is pretty much it. A couple days before taking the flight, I opened Instagram and tried to find as many places as I could via the search section. I saved two coffee shops, an ice-cream parlour and some restaurants that I thought might be nice to try.

Neighbourhood Highlights: 8th Street

There’s no doubt that the most charming streets in Saskatoon are those built around pedestrians, with lots of small, unique, locally-owned shops. Let’s not, however, be too quick to forget about 8th street. We sometimes lose the charm and brush the whole thing off as parking lots and big box stores, but there are some incredible and defining businesses and landmarks on 8th Street that help make Saskatoon the great city it is.
