Cafe Medina was one of the places that was on my MUST TRY lists for the longest times… I’ve attempted several times before but it always ended up to be a 2 hour wait…so I always give up. This time around, we decided to put down our name for the 2 hour wait and we took that time frame to try out Honolulu Coffee. (which will be up on our blog very shortly)
We were so happy when we officially sat down. This place is literally always packed with people, so I would recommend either going LATER in the day like at 2pm or come SUPER early in the morning to ensure a spot… otherwise you’ll probably have to wait for 2 hours for a table.

The heat wave has officially hit Vancouver once again and hopefully this time it remains for a bit longer than just a few days. This weekend Phil and I hit up a new brunch location located in Gastown called Alibi Room. I love how their windows are wide open so the breeze flows in and tons of natural lighting enters the space. When we got there, there were only another group in front of us so the wait wasn’t too long. Just a quick thing… their waiting area smells like a Return It depot…not the most pleasant waiting area ever, just so you know. I’m pretty sure they hold quite a night life here, hence the smell of alcohol in the waiting area.

Coffee shops have been popping all over Vancouver for the past couple of years and there’s a new cafe that joined the category! Porto Cafe opened up not too long ago on the very end of Cambie before you hit the bridge to Downtown. We were invited by our friend @pork_ninjas to their tasting event! We were able to try out their different coffee options and also their pastries & breakfast sandwiches!
We first tried out their espresso. The espresso was categorized into three sections:
1- shot of espresso
We were told the proper way of drinking espresso was to drink it in order.
