Local Community Spotlight: Our Favorite Downtown Neighbors

Local Community Spotlight: Our Favorite Downtown Neighbors

Bringing Japanese cuisine to the heart of Downtown Edmonton and feeding the hungry stomachs of students, entrepreneurs, business owners and fellow restaurateurs has allowed us to make the easy adjustment to this new part of the city. We’re just over a month old at Noodle Bar by Nomiya and it’s been great serving new customers and connecting with other successful local businesses in the area. It’s not hard to be the new business on the block when you are surrounded by people who share a passion for supporting and shopping local. So, we decided to shout out some of our favorite downtown neighbors:

Koodos to kb&co

Keep up with what’s fresh by visiting downtown Edmonton’s plant-based café. Kb&co makes the conscious effort to lower their carbon footprint by preserving our planet through an animal-free menu. The café is mindful in ingredient sourcing and offers wholesome food to give you energy to power through your busy day! Nourish yourself with a delicious breakfast, salad bowl, smoothie, or sweet treat that is made from all organic produce purchased locally.

One hundred years of history Mercer Warehouse

The 42,000 square feet tall Mercer Warehouse (corner of 104 ST and 104 AVE) is not a hard site to miss. This historic building is home to a cluster of Edmonton’s local businesses and start-ups. In the lower level of these ancient walls, you will find Vacancy Hall, an interactive environment that invites local businesses and entrepreneurs to promote their products. It’s a perfect spot for designers, artists, and entrepreneurs looking for a flexible, short-term location to put their ideas into motion.

It’s more than just a coffee house at Iconoclast Koffeehuis

The 360-degree coffee bar serves you with a clean and balanced cup of coffee roasted with extreme skill and precision. Iconoclast coffee prides locals with top quality, imported coffee products that you can enjoy with some friends over a game at the café’s ping-pong table or compete in the dartboard area.

Success in the making at MacEwan University

It’s been a pleasure seeing our student crowd grow in our Noodle Bar. MacEwan University offers a rich and rewarding post-secondary education, so it’s only fair that we give students a rich and rewarding ramen experience. To show our appreciation for choosing us over cup ramen noodles, enjoy a 10% discount with a valid student ID until November 30th!
