Hi guys! I’m so excited to finally introduce a new series blogger & graphic designer, Kendra & I have been working on over the last few months. We both have a serious passion for exploring good food, delicious drinks and unique boutiques. After a few lovely coffee dates, we agreed our love for Vancouver & all the wonderful small businesses should be made into a series highlighting our favourite spots to eat, sip and shop. Every Thursday we will alternate posts, sharing our favourite gems around the city. Get excited – we’ve got some great posts lined up!
We made our first stop in Gastown at the highly recommended cafe, Nelson The Seagull. Their focus, coffee & bread. Two of my all time favourite things. Both, so good. I had a cappuccino that fell nothing short of amazing. Perfect way to begin an awesome day…
We ordered an egg tart, avocado bread and a chocolate croissant. Best chocolate croissant I’ve had in a looong time. The bread served with the avocado was crunchy on the outside & pillowy soft on the inside…yum! We didn’t try the homemade almond milk, but definitely a must next go!
The charming ambience, high ceilings and open kitchen make this beautiful space inviting & cosy. I love that it has an urban European feel. Best part, you can watch the owner make bread – how cool is that? :)
I’ll definitely be back to take advantage of the great communal tables they have. Perfect spot to unwind & catch up on some reading.
ps: Don’t leave without claiming a box at the front of the cafe to begin a pen-pal relationship with someone new… such a cute idea!
