Passion Tearoom

Passion Tearoom is a cute family run bubble tea joint located in Downtown Vancouver. All of their drinks use only fresh fruits and and freshly brewed tea. None of their drinks use flavored syrups or powdered milk which is rare to find these days! I was recently invited to check them out, and I really…

Milkcow Cafe

Milkcow Cafe has been making waves on social media with their IG worthy desserts. After a filling lunch at Sura, Q and I decided to drop by and check this cute cafe out. When we first arrived the entire cafe was full, but by the time we left about an hour later the cafe was…

Soft Peaks

I was kindly invited by Trudy, to try the new Frissant Ice Cream Sandwich at Soft Peaks Ice Cream in Burnaby. The store interior is very spacious with lots of natural light. The Burnaby location has to be at least double the size of their Gastown counterpart. What we drank: Iced Caffè mocha ($4.50) The…

Nana’s Green Tea

Nana’s Green Tea has been on my to-go list of places to eat in Japan for as long as I can remember, but I have never had the chance to go. I was extremely happy when I found out that they were opening their first North American branch in Vancouver! I’m not one for queues,…

Caffe di Beppe

One of the most rewarding parts of starting a food Instagram is all the amazing and wonderful people that I have met on the platform. One of these lovely ladies is Yuki! We finally had our long awaited date this week and what better place to meet than the very romantic Di Beppe restaurant? Another…

My Frosty

One of my favourite desserts in the world is Shaved Ice (patbingsu) and I’m so glad that it has become trendy and popular in Vancouver. Although Passion8 is still my first choice, My Frosty is slowly but surely climbing it’s way to number one in my heart. What I love about My Frosty is that…

ZenQ Burnaby

Growing up in North Burnaby I have always felt that there was a serious lack of good bubble tea joints. Enter – ZenQ. Perhaps a decade too late for me (it’s a pretty good study spot!), it’s a great dessert hot spot. They’re relatively new in Burnaby so it’s not super busy, but I’m definitely…

Quantum Coffee

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…

Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie

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…

The Boulevard Coffee Roasting Co.

The Boulevard used to be my go to hang out during my university days. It’s been ages since I’ve been back, but since I was on campus for work, I decided to drop by during my walk down memory lane. W What I drank: Mocha ($4.25) This is not usually my drink of choice, but…
