all day cafe

the all day cafe is a little place inside lonsdale quay that has been there for what seems like forever and it is awesome!  if i’m at the quay, this is usually my go-to place for a coffee.20150228_144731

aubrey had a tuna melt and a mocha while i had a kitsilano cookie and a latte.  everything was delicious!

they have all day breakfast and a good selection of baked goods.  they also have great drinks – both hot and cold!  and the staff are always super friendly.  it’s a great place to grab a beverage and/or a snack to go and then head outdoors: to the back of the quay, over to the pier or to waterfront park.  in all three locations, you can sit and take in the beautiful view of downtown vancouver, while you sip on your drink and munch on your snack from this wonderful little cafe 🙂

pure bread

so…our first outing since we decided to start this blog was to pure bread on hastings and cambie in vancouver.  and it was tasty!

i did find it a bit overwhelming though…there is so much choice in baked goods!  i finally settled for a favourite of mine – lemon loaf.  and it was very nice and lemony 🙂  aubrey got a bacon mushroom quiche and a salted caramel dessert and she enjoyed her selections as well!

the coffee is from stumptown coffee roasters and my latte was delicious.  i asked for no foam and got exactly what i asked for!

it’s definitely a nice space – the high ceilings give it a very airy feel.  a great place to go with a friend for a pastry, coffee and a good chat.  but it is small.  we were lucky to get a table. and it’s busy!  the line-up was never-ending.
