I've been in hiatus for a while… quite a while is probably a better way to put it. Any particular reason why? I can't really think of any that won't sound like an excuse. Nevertheless, I'm back - hoping to catch up.
It was the time of the monthly coffee tour (which I will showcase at another time). After the tour, we decided to grab something to eat nearby. I’ve heard from Savary Island Pie Company from difference places. All indications have been positive, and since our last coffee stop is not even a block away, it was the perfect opportunity to visit.
Once we entered the place, it reminded me of “The Bakehouse” and “Aphrodite’s Organic Café”. With the gorgeous weather outside, there were a couple tables out there. Inside, it was pretty crammed. There were many baked goods on display along with some freshly baked bread. I’ve already got some baked goods in my system during coffee tour, it was time for something savory. Yet again, I wouldn’t considered myself visited this place without a slice of pie.
|Homemade Iced Tea ($2.75) – 5.5/6|
|Breakfast Sandwich – 4/6|
|Grilled Chicken and Basil Sandwich ($12.25) – 5/6|
|Strawberry Rhubarb Pie ($5.5) – 4/5|
It was a very enjoyable meal – the only sticker to me was the price. I felt it was a bit more expensive than other places. Perhaps it’s the magic word “organic” that drove up the price? I guess location was also a factor, being in West Van. But I digress… it’s a cute little place to check out when you’re around. Particularly with weather like what we have recently, it’s a good place to cool down after time spent under the sun.
