Sometimes you need a little pick-me-up, and Qup Cafe dishes out plenty of those just a few steps away from the University of Alberta. But once you step into the friendly café, you'll face an important decision: sweet or savory?
The café has built a reputation for its fruity bubble tea creations, and it also packs its beverage menu with real-fruit smoothies, hot drinks, and Hong Kong–style milk teas. Sweet options carry over to the food selection, which includes crepes and Belgian waffles. The café plates up a multitude of savory dishes, too, such as green-onion pancakes, noodle bowls, and bite-size fish balls with a housemade spicy glaze.
