Store feature: Fools & Horses Coffee Co.

The Coal and Canary team loves coffee (obvs), so we wanted to do a feature on our friends and neighbours at Fools & Horses Coffee Co.!

"It's really exciting to work with local businesses run by young entrepreneurs, just like us," says Amanda Buhse. "We're super happy to be their neighbours at The Forks, and we are delighted that they are growing so quickly. It's always satisfying to see Winnipeg companies become so successful."

Fools & Horses Coffee Co. has two locations and offers a full espresso menu, doughnuts and pastries from local businesses. Ben Gillies, co-owner of Fools & Horses Coffee Co. shares his favourite thing about Coal and Canary.

“The quality and longevity of their candles are second to none and the scents fill the room,” says Gillies. “Following them on social media helps us appreciate the incredible amount of effort and care that goes into their work, but also shows the hilarious masterminds behind the brand!”

Fools & Horses Coffee Co. was created by five entrepreneurs who had a desire to create high-quality coffee and tea in a relaxing and attractive downtown location, all while making a positive impact on the community. Gillies says shopping local is important because you will find some great products you can’t find anywhere else, while allowing people to pursue their passions.

“Winnipeggers are some of the most creative people we know,” says Gillies. “We think the products, arts, and food you can get in our city is second to none.”

Some of their other tasty treats you can grab from the shop are sweet and savoury toast, sandwiches, salads, beer, wine, and whiskey!
