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 love London Fog. Put London Fog in a food item, and I’ll probably try it. A lot of ice cream shops make Earl Grey ice cream, but London Fog ice cream is harder to come by. The difference lies in the creamier vanilla flavour that is not guaranteed in the Earl Grey versions.
Earnest easily makes the best London Fog ice cream (or London Fog flavoured anything) that I have ever had. Earnest, please sell your ice cream to the rest of Canada!

Café Medina is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, nestled along a rather blank street; if not for the long lines of people waiting outside, you might miss it when you walk past. The first time we went there, we were told a party of 4 needed to wait an hour, so we walked around Marshall’s until about 45 mins past to leave a buffer. When we arrived back at the restaurant, we actually just made it in time as the hostess had already called our names a few times and was ready to strike us off the list.
