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!
