Moka House Shoal Point Review (Victoria, BC)

When we lived in Victoria, we’d often head over to Cook Street Village to meet friends at the Moka House. Incidentally, the coffee shop was actually founded by a friend from high school’s parents. Now a franchised company, Moka House has seven locations around Victoria and the lower mainland. During our recent trip to Vancouver […]

Georgia Cafe and Deli Review (Sidney, BC)

We were visiting family on Vancouver Island last weekend, and ventured into the heart of the quaint little town of Sidney for coffee.

Starbucks (Arbutus & Valley) Review

Cafe Zen On Yew, Kitsilano Review

Simply French Review

After a vigorous tennis match for mother’s day, we brought my parents to Simply French for a quick bite to eat. Simply French is a café located on West 10th, in the Point Grey area of Vancouver. They offer free wifi and free parking can be found on the street. They serve soups, paninis, coffee, […]

Giovane Café Review

The Fairmont Pacific Rim, located in downtown Vancouver is stunning.  Carrera marble floors, walls and pillars would normally look ostentatious, however the design is über calming, modern, and sophisticated. We would suggest definitely wandering the hotel when you come to eat! Giovane Café is a chic cafe + bakery + deli located inside the Fairmont […]
