What we drank: Cappuccino ($4.00) and Ethiopian Pour Over with grains of paradise spice, orange zest and sugar syrup This has got to be the prettiest cappuccino I’ve ever seen! It was not bad, but the espresso they used had a pretty acidic profile and that just doesn’t really work for me. The specialty pour over was pretty to look at, but again, just not … Continue reading Quantum Coffee
Chez Christophe is hands down one of my favourite patisseries in Burnaby. Every birthday (friends and family) I will purchase a cake here to celebrate. That being said I don’t ever remember dining in here, so I was glad that my first time doing so was with one of my oldest and closest friends who was visiting from Hong Kong. What we ate: Sunny’s Matcha … Continue reading Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie

What we ate: 1/2 sandwich Chicken – Grilled chicken breast, arugula, pear, house pickled onions, pesto aioli, provolone cheese, sourdough bread ($5.25) … Continue reading Tractor
Sugar Lab is a newly opened Mille Crepe Cake place in Burnaby. It’s a bit out of the way if you don’t drive, but it’s worth the trek out! Tiramisu Mille Crepe Cake ($8.50) This was my favourite dessert of the evening. I liked that the cake wasn’t too sweet and the multiple layers were so gorgeously even. There was a good chocolate and coffee … Continue reading Sugar Lab
After my girl’s date with R got crashed, we decided to ditch the boys and head for a coffee break at Trafiq. I’ve never been here, but I’ve only heard good things, so I was more than down to check it out. It was a gorgeous sunny day so the bakery wasn’t too busy (because everyone was probably out enjoying the sun!) What we ate: … Continue reading Trafiq
