If you have a sweet tooth, you'll want to head to 94 Take the Cake to eat a slice of drool-worthy desserts. The unbelievable cafe has a black and white design and looks like a colouring book.
While the University of Alberta Botanic Garden isn't hidden, you might not realize they host twilight picnics.
