The Zoo Ice Cream Parlor and Crêperie - Kamloops, BC

Speaking of Slashy’s another:
The Zoo Ice Cream Parlour and Crêperie. The ice cream-crêpe shop is slashed with Kamloops Cigar and Pipe Store. What a mix! This place is straight up the best possible way.

I can understand if you’re thinking its a little DDE-ish from the outside.

A Touch of Europe Café - Chilliwack, BC

***UPDATE 2013: Touch of Europe is gone now :(, Michelle's Café currently occupies this space serving Chinese food***

Homebound, we make a pit stop in Chilliwack for breakfast this morning. A Touch of Europe is a little café on Luckakuck Way among a cluster of businesses that include the BCAA and McGavin’s Bread Basket.

Now before we get to breakfast, tell me, what’s going on here?

The Crab King - Steveston, BC

I’m at The Crab King today.
I came home, briefly, and now I find myself back in Steveston? I did not plan this. So here I am, again. The weather is crisp and sunny this afternoon. There are people milling about in flip flops! Now, that’s a bit extreme. It’s warmer than winter, but it’s not flip-flop warm.

The Cannery Cafe (Granny's Diner) - Steveston Village, BC

Once Upon a Time... there were two geeks. One was far geekier than the other, and wanted to visit the fictional town of Storybrooke, Maine.
I haven’t been to Steveston for over a year and I forgot how quaint this area is. Finding parking and browsing the shops is painless at this time of year too, as the village isn’t as crowded as it seems to be during the summer months.

Sweet Home Café - Kamloops, BC

The Sweet Home Café is a small soup and sandwich type of place. The main draw for parents is that Sweet Home Café offers a supervised play area for small children. The restaurant is small, but the space is defined. On one end of the restaurant, there is the play area and on the other end there is a living room-like lounge space. In the middle, joining the play and lounge spaces, is the café dining area.

Little Beetle Bistro - Chilliwack, BC

Little Beetle Bistro is an old converted farm house that stands amidst more recent buildings on South Sumas Road.
The restored deep blue building sticks out from its neighbours, in this area that's predominately an industrial park.
The bistro is busy with most of the tables filled with patrons chatting about things like the newest stretch stitch option on their Pfaff.

Caramel Latte ($3.50)

Harold's Family Restaurant - Kamloops, BC

I am on my way to Princess Auto this fine morning, and I’ll need a breakfast stop. Princess Auto stocks some pretty random things in their inventory. It's not just auto. The last time I was there, I found melamine airline dinnerware, next to cigar cutters! My legitimate reason for being at Princess Auto is for jack stands, but that’s just an excuse to peruse their aisles. It doesn’t take much to entertain me, does it?

Harold’s Family Restaurant is located just minutes down the street for a quick morning meal.

Chopped Leaf - Kamloops, BC

Dolce Amaro - Kamloops, BC

After shopping at Nature's Fare Market, I often round this corner and never knew there is a café tucked in here.

Dorset Cereal Simply Delicious Muesli

I love good muesli. I am picking up some dish detergent today, and I happen to spy on the shelves, Dorset Cereals. It is muesli with no added sugar. This is actually not that easy to come by. Most of the muesli I’ve come across has some sort of additional sweetener in it. Sometimes the makers add honey to the oats, or other times it’s a sugary coating on the raisins or the other bits of fruit. I don’t really like sweet cereals, and I find the fruit element in muesli to be sweet enough for the morning munchies.
