My day always starts with a cup of coffee. I love coffee and I love mornings. I think I’m happiest in the morning, sitting reading a book and enjoying coffee.
I had a wonderful cuppa joe at Revolver in Gastown. There are so many charming and unique cafes in Vancouver that even if coffee isn’t your thing, they’re worth a visit for a good atmosphere.
Revolver is one of my favourite cafes in this neighbourhood. All the coffee is pour over brewed and served individually which seem to be increasingly popular. The shop, I’m told, has a rotating list of coffees from the best small-scale roasters around North America.
I took my coffee to go and headed to the Waterfront Station to catch the Seabus to North Vancouver. I really enjoy the North Shore (as the locals call it). It’s a nice break from the city, but still close to the city. A balance is hard to find when living downtown.
I met up with two friends on the North Shore and we drove to Grouse Mountain to do the infamous Grouse Grind. Aka “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster”.
