(My solo road trip of western Canada – Wednesday 30th September)
So far, I have travelled on the Sky Train, the SeaBus, I have been delighted by some local talent, but now, and I know this sounds like I have the Canadian bug of coffee, but I really need some coffee! I wanted something different, no disrespect but I was a little fed up of Tim Horton’s.
I walked past a few places and then came across ‘Trees Organic Coffee and Roasting House’. Very nice set up, incredibly happy and polite staff, the coffee was near perfect but the treats I had, well, I had by far the best almond croissant I have ever had, big, crispy, fresh, plenty of filling and just the right balance of sweetness.
Sorry, it did not stop there my friends, as I had just walked into a place that claimed to have the best Cheesecake in Vancouver it would be foolish, maybe even disrespectful not to try some, right? So I got some cheesecake too…
I had experienced heaven while eating this because it was truly bliss, I know this sounds far fetched, but if you believe (as I do) that you can actually experience aspects of heaven and hell here on this temporal earth, then you will know exactly what I mean. I think I did ‘transcend all time and space’…please do make a special visit and come here if you visit Vancouver, if you would like excellent quality coffee, if almond croissants are one of your favourites or if you simply want to enter another existence for a short time while eating the most delectable cheesecake, then this is the place to come…my mouth is watering as I write this so I will stop now!
