When coming from the West side of Calgary take 14 Street or Crowchild Trail to Kensington Road east. Right on 10A Street. Bernard Callebaut is on the corner of 10A and Kensington.
Street parking is available in front of the shop on 10A Street or throughout Kensington. Street parking is metered everyday except on Sunday. Street parking is hit or miss and can be tricky.
WEEKDAYS, I recommend parking a few blocks from the shop by Hillhurst United Church. There is free 2 hour parking on Kensington Close between 12 Street and 13 Street, and on 13 Street between Kensington Close and Kensington Road. Highlighted on the map in green.
SATURDAY, I recommend parking in the Kensington Gate Public Parking lot, located right beside the shop. Parking is $3.15 for the day. Highlighted on the map in blue
SUNDAY is free parking day. All street parking is free!!
