Blue Bottle Coffee

Have you ever had the feeling of knowing that something is made well but still not enjoying it? That is how I feel about good coffee.

I can recognize when I taste good quality coffee, but without sugar and cream, I do not enjoy drinking it.

Coffee Shops in Gastown

We had a lot of coffee, tea, lattes, and the like during our trip to Vancouver. Staying in Gastown, we were surrounded by coffee shops around every corner, and we tried a new one nearly every morning (and sometimes afternoon).

Upon arriving in Vancouver, we dropped off our bags and showered, and had lunch before stopping by for our first hit of caffeine. I went with my fail-safe London Fog, and was decently satisfied, but unbeknownst to me at the time, this would end up being our most-visited cafe. Continue reading Coffee Shops in Gastown

193 Bench Kitchen

After a morning spent around the sun, her flowers, rain, and many mosquitoes, we found ourselves in Hamilton in search of lunch. I had originally mapped out a cafe along King St, and as we were walking over, my two friends got distracted by the cafe with its windows open, welcoming us in.

Lady M

During our last meet-up in Causeway Bay, the topic of desserts came up, and I mentioned how I had never tried Lady M. My friend informed me that the rose crêpe cake was a Hong Kong exclusive, and as a fan of cake, rose, and exclusivity, we made a plan to meet up again later that week for some indulgence.

My brunch buddy was finally back in town for the holidays, and we decided to continue our tradition in Markham. We took the usual suspects out of the picture, and a quick Google search showed us a cafe on Main Street Unionville.

House of Small Wonder

When looking for places to eat in Berlin, House of Small Wonder popped up among the top recommendations. After seeing photos from a couple of friends who were in Berlin just before I was, I was determined to pay a visit. I didn’t even know what the menu was like; it was the above photo that drew me in.

My favourite cafe in Vancouver

I just came back from a week in Vancouver, and living in Gastown, we made it our mission to get our daily caffeine kick from a new place every morning.

Finch’s was not originally on my shortlist of cafes I made before we came, but we passed by it one morning and thought it was adorable – so we made a mental note to come back another morning.

Saving Grace

We were in search of a brunch place to continue our monthly brunch sessions back when Pig was still in Toronto; we decided on Saving Grace without much expectation.

We headed there early and was surprised to see a line of about fifteen people already there; the restaurant opened and the small space filled up quickly.
