Collin had been asking to go to this place, but it always happened to be Sunday. They don’t open on Sundays. On the last weekend in November, we were finally able his wish to come true.

His wish was to get a baguette from Finch’s Tea & Coffee House. This cozy cafe is on Pender Street and often occupied by many people.

We ordered from their baguette menu.

His choice, Prosciutto
(Prosciutto, Edam, tomato, red leaf lettuce, oil & vinegar)

He asked Cheddar instead of Edam. This is favorite. It had been long time since his last visit, so he enjoyed it a lot and asked me if he should get another one! :O

My choice, Pear
(Pear, blue brie, prosciutto, roasted walnuts)

This is my favorite, and I just can’t choose something new! 😀 The last time when it was a spring time, pear wasn’t ripen yet. This time, it was juicy.

On the second day of Easter holiday, it looked windy when I woke up and looked outside. Well, at least, it was sunny, so I prepared for another hiking. On my way to catching a bus, I was thinking I should grab some lunch/snack before heading to the trail, and I stopped by at downtown Vancouver.

Finch’s Tea & Coffee House is in a walking distance from Waterfront Skytrain station. The cafe is small, so if you want to eat in, you should expect the waiting time. Also, it took 20 min for me to get the baguette, although there was no line (well, quite a few people waiting at tables), so if you’re hurry, this might not be a place for you.

I ordered from their baguette menu.

Pear was too young to eat. I prefer to ripen ones. Anyways, I had some bites while I was waiting for the bus, and the rest was taken with me for snack on hiking.

Most of you might already have known, but they open the second store in Strathcona. Have you been there yet?

I went skiing to Whistler on Easter weekend. If I’m there, of course, I go to my favorite place, Crepe Montagne. After working hard on skiing, their sweets are really a treat.

It was around 5:00pm, so there were some space available. However, when I finished eating, all tables were filled.

I ordered from their dessert menu.

Belle Helene
(Two half Bartlett pear, chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream)

Inside the crepe, vanilla ice cream was in the center with each pear side by side. Chocolate sauce of topping was so good with them altogether.
