Yes, it wrapped over three months ago. But this is my blog and I wanted to share the creations I tried here or on Instagram and this is the only place left since it wrapped over three months ago.
Between errands with the kids in the car, I noticed we’d be swinging by home and we could drive by Fife and kick off hot chocolate festival with something super local.
That same day, we were in Kerrisdale and we are not often there. So I had to try out Faubourg’s creation that included all the treats which I tried to share with the kids who obviously ordered macarons and polished those off.
I did return to Honolulu Coffee (they are so close to me) for their other creation but my phone battery was dead so I have no photo.
#77 – RAINCOUVER / You’ll know you’re in Vancouver when you see this fun, 70% dark hot chocolate (with pink Himalayan salt ) melting a cloud-shaped mass of cotton candy suspended over the cup. It’s raining!
When this is also a super local cafe (hallelujah!) you try both yummy creations.
I wouldn’t normally have tried Giovane but it was an elevated creation and my office was temporarily really close to Pac Rim and Giovane Cafe.
While my office was temporarily on Hastings (between Hastings and Pender), Bobarun was on my way home when walking home from work.
My sister and I were walking around after LNY festivities and I suggested Nelson for some eats and so I could try the melktart they make, which I missed during croissant crawl despite dropping in mid-morning near the end of the festival period.
And then my office moved to its permanent home and there are new local cafes, like 49th Parallel now.
I took a random day off – I don’t know why – and treated Baby to a day off from daycare. She joined me for this delicious hot chocolate and ate a cookie.
To cap off the hot chocolate festival (I think I did go to Honolulu second time after Beta), I met up with a friend with whom we annually check something out together, often Beta 5!
