Modern Mix Monday – Beans

Looking for something to do? Every Monday morning, we present to you “Modern Mix Monday”, a brief but link-filled one-liner review of our past weekend loaded with suggestions to inspire you for your next!


It’s been a while since I’ve done anything on Cambie Street so when I went on Friday afternoon, I was pleased to walk by and discover a whole bunch of cafes and independent shops, despite the Canada Line Construction. I went to Beans Coffee Shop (3365 Cambie Street) and asked the barista for his recommendation. (I order Chai Tea Lattes alllll the time and wanted something different). He made me a a London Fog (half tea, half steamed milk) but instead of Earl Grey Tea, he steeped a strawberry tea instead. It smelled super good but it was slightly bland – perhaps next time I will add in some honey or sweetener instead. Was it worth my $4? Probably not but it’s always great to support local coffee shops!

Additional perks include free parking at the back and wireless internet – both of which we took advantage of!

Fraiche Restaurant in West Vancouver – Review

By guest writer Kenneth Law
The food was excellent and certainly not run of the mill plates that you could find, solidifying its fine dining status from the go. The dishes were very aromatic and it was obvious attention to fine details were paid to. Taste was very balanced and the appetizers and entrees we ordered relied strongly on the natural flavors of the ingredients. This is unlike many fine dining experiences I’ve had where they decided to put the meal on top of a plate of salt instead of the other way around.

Modern Mix Monday – 49th Parallel Coffee

Looking for something to do? Every Monday morning, we present to you “Modern Mix Monday”, a brief but link-filled one-liner review of our past weekend loaded with suggestions to inspire you for your next!

On Saturday, I went to 49th Parallel (2152 West 4th Avenue) for coffee. 49th Parallel is a local (Burnaby) coffee roasting company which supplies coffee beans to buyers all around the world and is founded by the same guys who brought us Caffè Artigiano. I have only been to 49th Parallel twice, but it’s a great meeting spot to take a break from shopping along West 4th. Last time I ordered the Blue Earl Grey which came in a cute, baby blue teapot. This time, I ordered off the menu, a Chai Tea Latte.
