Starbucks Reserve Roastery, Seattle

If you are a coffee lover, you have to visit, sit down and have a coffee, and buy some small batch, rare, and limited coffee beans only available here. The reserve coffee is sold for a few weeks. I don’t like to always eat or drink the same things so this place is perfect for…

Birds & the Beets, Gastown, Vancouver

Nestled in the heart of Gastown, Vancouver is a coffee shop serving sandwiches. When you walk into Birds & the Beets, you smell the aroma of flowers. The wall of flowers stimulates your senses even before you order your coffee. It is a nice touch to the interior design. I am always attracted to colourful…

33 Acres Brewing, Vancouver

When you think about where to get a beer in the Mount Pleasant area of Vancouver, 33 Acres come to mind. What about coffee? I don’t drink beer, but I am a coffee addict. I walked in with my kid after school today and casually asked for a milk because she was very thirsty. It…

JJ Bean, Cambie, Vancouver

Cappuccino and almond croissant to end a photoshoot at Walrus across the street. Their article will be up in the next few days! Watch out for it! I went to JJ Bean on Cambie today at the corner of West 18th.     I love reading about the story behind a company. I haven’t met the…

Liberty Cafe on Main Street

We are a family addicted to Japanese characters, Japanese snacks, and sushi. When we discovered Liberty Cafe has a totoro gingerbread cookie, I almost fainted. It was perfect with a green tea matcha. Sit inside or enjoy the sunshine and sit outside on the patio chairs. This place is kid friendly and lots of moms…

Soffee Cafe South Granville

I am in love with the crepes at Soffee Cafe. They used to serve it with whipped cream but have recently started to serve it with ice cream! I met up with a friend for afternoon tea and this is really a lighter option compared to their high tea sets. If you want to be…

In Search of the best coffee

It will be an ongoing mission. I am constantly buying coffee beans and discovering something new everyday. I also go to coffee shops. I have recently subscribed to a coffee subscription, ok, maybe several. I am waiting for my coffee to arrive at my doorstep. It’s hard to take a picture of every single bag…

Prado Cafe on Fraser Street

If you want a quick bite, you can find smaller portions of salad and sandwiches at Prado Cafe. I am a coffee lover, but decided to try their London fog. I am not a tea connoisseur and can’t comment on the tea mixed with milk and how they brewed it and at what temperature they…

Sakura donut at Lucky’s Donuts on Main Street

The sakura donut everyone is raving about. Got there at 11am and no lineups to buy it. Topped with a cute Sakura shortbread cookie, matcha meringue, strawberry glaze, and filled with sweet redbean paste. It comes with a beautifully packaged box. Reminds me of the beautiful packaging for every single item when you buy something…
