Catering to thirsty lips and empty stomachs, Wired Monk boasts a menu full of caffeinated beverages and delectable light meal options. Beat morning moodiness back into hibernation with hearty breakfast sandwiches and bagels, such as the bountiful breakfast bagel bedecked with egg, cheddar, ham, and tomato ($5.35), or rise like obedient dough to freshly made scones and muffins baked daily in-store. For lunchtime noshes with brawn, choose the chicken-cheddar-chutney panini ($8.95) or the fully stacked mediterranean-veggie sandwich ($7.95).
The smell of chocolate-chip cookies baking in the oven has a tendency to unleash waves of childhood memories, especially when those cookies are iconic Nestl? Toll House creations. At Nestl? Toll House Caf?, passionate bakers coax out these memories by using Nestl? products to create decadent desserts that taste just as satisfying as they did years ago.
From its outpost on Boundary Bay, Centennial Beach Cafe dazzles multiple senses with a menu of flavourful beach cuisine and panoramic views of the Boundary Bay Regional Park. The kitchen serves up seasonal catch for platters of fish and chips. For breakfast, they layer green-eggs-and-ham sandwiches with pea greens and black-forest ham and toss hash browns with a variety of ingredients, from pesto and shrimp to grilled chicken and roasted corn. Guests enjoy the caf?'s savoury bites for early-morning sustenance while scanning the skies for eagles and other wildlife along the Pacific Coastal Flyway. In warm weather, they can sit under green umbrellas on the patio or visit the adjacent playground, and in inclement conditions, they can play games of tic-tac-toe by breathing on the restaurant's wraparound windows.
The creators of Karmavore Cafe + Dessert Lounge believe that, if you are what you eat, you should eat healthily, sustainably, and compassionately. As practicing vegans themselves, they know that such feats are not easily accomplished and can often mean steering clear of favorite foods. But they also know that, unlike convincing a toddler that broccoli is a special treat for good children, finding tasty vegan food is not impossible.
To prove it, they enlisted the help of vegan baker Ashley McLean. McLean's desserts may be egg-free, lactose-free, and cholesterol-free, but many customers don't even realize it, Karmavore's manager said in a New Westminster News Leader article. They're drawn into the shop at the sight of the cakes, apple pies, and peanut-butter bars on display. These treats satisfy sweet teeth after heartier vegan wraps, burgers, soups, and salads from the deli.
In one sitting, guests can indulge in bites from around the world at Cafe Fifth Avenue. During breakfast hours, chefs cook Moroccan-style pancakes and Italian wedding chicken, roasted and cooked in red wine. The brunch menu offers Thailand?s coconut curry chicken meal and Peruvian-style chicken with rice and pickled onions. To recreate Turkey?s pulled lamb donair dish, the protein cooks for 24 hours, while housemade burgers represent the U.S.A.?s culinary scene. The eatery?s drinks are just as multicultural, from Cuban coffee to iced Karagani lemon-lime tea from Japan.
During the winter at Stomping Grounds Coffee House, guests can look over the steam of their coffee cups and out toward a rolling meadow surrounded by ranch-style fences. The windows and walls are rolled away during the summer, leaving the shop open to the warmth of Osprey Village.
Whether hunkering down or enjoying a breath of fresh air, guests can dig in to specialties such as fresh juices, organic coffee, housemade turkey chili, ham-and-swiss sandwiches, and locally made pastries. The eatery fires breakfast specialties for early risers, and it also arranges catering platters for large parties.
