September 24th, 2011. Mother/Daughters’ Day~~!
Mom was visiting Vancouver for a couple weeks getting Henry settled into school in Seattle and just having a nice vacation with the daughters. We made a day for just us girls to hang out and spend time together.
I was super excited about the day, and despite the gloomy clouds I was determined to make this a day of fun and activity! First we headed out to Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver to take in the great view of the waterfront and to nosh on some Coffeebun!
I swear, this stuff is magic! Soft, cloud-like buns coated in a coffee glaze as it rises in the oven..the result? This slightly crumbly, sweet coffee exterior around some seriously delicious, moist bread! I had the Bun Sandwich, which is a classic bun with ham and cheese sandwich. You’d be surprised how amazing this marriage of savory sweet is
Mom ordered the Korean Shaved Ice which came with chunks of fresh fruit, red bean and vanilla ice cream. It was a pretty large portion, but mom had no problem finishing it off, since it’s one of her favorite treats!
This place is magic! It’s totally worth the drive out to sit in the cute, cozy little store with the tantalizing aroma of coffeebuns wafting around you and having your bun served fresh out of the oven. Buns of LOVE~ ♥
