Bought a walnut rosemary sea salt loaf yesterday at the Kitsilano Market. Oh my goodness! That's got to be about the best bread I've ever had. Made a fantastic turkey sandwich. So glad you are in my neighbourhood.

We stumbled on this place by accident and what a happy accident. The strawberry cake, I can't stop thinking about. It's also lovely to see them making the bread. Good coffee and great avocado on fresh bread toast. Absolutely delicious and very pretty.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
