For the last day of the Easter holiday, I asked my friends if they wanted to go hiking in Bowen Island. They readily agreed to go! 🙂 We took a ferry from Horseshoe Bay. It is 20-min ride. The first thing we did when we arrived at Snug Cove ferry terminal was to find this cafe. My friend’s co-worker told her that their carrot cake was the best for him and that the cafe was just beside the ferry dock.

The Snug Cafe is 200m walking from Snug Cove ferry terminal. They open really early morning til 4pm daily, and dinner on a few days of the week. The store inside is small with two tables, but there are lots of tables outside. When we walked in, it was past noon, and there was a line up. So, we decided to come back after little hiking to a viewpoint.

We ordered from their showcase for snack to go. We continued to hike and had these snacks at Killarney Lake.

Quiche, Carrot Cake, Apple Pie, and Raspberry Cream Cheese Croissant

I liked both Quiche.

Carrot Cake

I never liked carrot cake that I ate in Canada, and this wasn’t an exception. My friend, who bought this, kept eating, so she must have liked it.

Apple Pie

This apple pie used a lot of cinnamon, which I didn’t like. My friend, who bought this, didn’t like cinnamon. Poor girl. 😦 Well, she enjoyed the raspberry cream cheese croissant, and I liked that, too.

On a weekend after raining just cleared up, Collin and I walked around Gastown. I have two new places in my list for brunch around the area, and we picked this one.

Secret Location is at the corner of Water street and Carrall but doesn’t look like a restaurant when you see from the outside the door. Even from the corner of the streets, it looks like just a showroom. The place has a restaurant on the right and probably a clothing store on the left, once you open the door.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

Sausage & Egg Sandwich

They have pancake, crepe, Quiche in their brunch menu, too. The dish is pricy to me, but hey, Gastown is a tourist location. I would come back for croissant, maybe.

This cafe restaurant had been in my list for long time. I just didn’t have a chance, as they are always busy and have a long line up every time I try. This time, I just went shopping around the area after hiking and decided to have snack.

Acme Cafe is located on Hastings Street in Gastown / Chinatown area. For my snack, I was thinking what I should have, savory like Quiche or dessert like pie. Having talked to their staff, I decided to go with pie!
