Cake’Ya

I forgot where I read about Cake’Ya.  It’s a tiny little operation located in Port Moody that makes a small selection of Japanese (Okinawan) goodies.  Small selection but each type of goody comes in an assortment of flavors. Easter Sunday we decided to have a relaxing day and head to Rocky Point Park.  On the […]
