Our Story

Facebooktwittermail

We began as a small café developed to fill in the gap on SAIT campus and meet the needs of students and the general SAIT community. After asking our customers what is important to them we have gone through major growth, and focus on providing quality, ethical, and locally-sourced products.   

Having quality, direct-trade, third-wave coffee is very important to us, and we believe we have found this with Monogram. Monogram offers the quality and variety that our customers desire combined with an affordable price-point. We have recently ventured into the market of sourcing and roasting our own coffee beans and have just released our very own custom brew – Finca La Florida – available to purchase by the cup or the bag to enjoy in the comfort of your home. To learn about the farm Finca La Florida beans are sourced from, visit our Farm Profile. > [LINKS TO farm profile under OUR COFFEE] 

We are a social enterprise! meaning all revenue generated at the Odyssey is reinvested back into SAIT students through SAITSA’s programming. 

The Odyssey is proud to be Leaf Certified 

“Each LEAF certified restaurant upholds the highest standards of environmentally-responsible foodservice. Our independent third-party audits review the overall environmental footprint of each business and make it easy for patrons to find green dining options. LEAF is the only national Canadian foodservice certification of its kind.”
