Fondway Cafe - Matcha Cheesecake & Sandwich

Fondway Cafe

Fondway Cafe is a cute and spacious cafe that has opened up along the strip behind Metrotown mall.  There’s a bunch of new condos being built there which I guess makes it a good location.  It is also close to me so I have no complaints and made it a good choice for a long […]

Big Dog Little Dog Bakery - Austin's Big Pupcake

Big Dog Little Dog Bakery

It was my pup Tormund’s (as in Tormund Giantsbane…you know??  Game of Thrones??) 2nd birthday yesterday and I splurged on a doggy birthday cupcake for him this year.  I’m not a pet spoiler and I don’t usually give him treats so this was special for both him and I. I went to a local pet […]

One of the finds from that place was […]

This location had large windows all along the […]
