After hiking and having lunch with my friends, I headed to Kitsilano to meet another friend at  last minute, because we needed to buy some baby shower gifts for our common friend. We walked probably for a couple of hours, back and forth on 4th Avenue. It was a hot day, which also drained our energy.

When you tried to find something, you can’t find it, can you? We were looking for a place to sit down like a café, but all we saw were restaurants! We kept walking towards Granville Island, and we decided to go here. Cafe Bica is close to the entrance of Granville Island.

We ordered from their drink menu and showcase.

My hungry and thirsty friend had these and seemed quite satisfied. 🙂

Compared to Granville Island, you can have a relaxing time here. 🙂

I got some small gift for Collin’s mom. I didn’t think it was good enough, so I also wanted to get something else. As she seemed happy when I gave some chocolate last year, I decided to get some from another chocolate store.

Chocolate Arts is near Granville Island. I have heard about this store from my friend, but it was first time for me to go there. The inside is like a cafe, and they even serve lunch.

I found Mother’s Day Selection Gift Box on the shelves and asked what it included although I can see the sample. I just wanted to make sure if there were no crazy taste of chocolate.

And, this is a bag for the gift.

On Mother’s Day weekend, I went shopping downtown and also Granville Island, to find some gifts for Collin’s mom, who had been visiting from Eastern Canada. I was here and there without having lunch, and eventually I was draining my energy.

I went in line at A La Mode Restaurant & Bakery Cafe at Granville Island to have some food. They serve chowder, hot pie, and dessert pie, etc. They are at window side in Public Market where you can see downtown view.

I ordered from their Lunch & Light menu.

Chicken Pot Pie with Salad

The chicken pot pie was thicker than the clam chowder that I ate last time. I have never eaten their dessert pie, so I will try that next time.
