Cafe Medina – Vancouver

I’ve been wanting to try Cafe Medina, the sister-cafe of Chambar, but just never had the time too.  This Xmas, I made it a top priority.

My bff and I wanted to go on Boxing Day, but it was closed.  Instead, I went with my parents on Jan 2, got there and it was closed 😦  FINALLY, I managed to have brunch there with my god sister….we got there before it opened at 9am to avoid the hour long lineups!

IMG_8008I loved the interior design…. kinda feels like I’m in New York..

IMG_8007We each got a drink with cool flavours….

IMG_8001Lavender latte and White chocolate pistachio rosewater mocha…… I could actually taste the lavender and rosewater! but not the pistachio…

IMG_8002Fricassé (2 fried eggs, braised short ribs, roasted potatoes, balsamic onions, Watercress, applewood cheddar. Grilled foccacia)…. extremely heavy brunch food (very oily).. and heavy on my wallet too (@ $16)!!!

IMG_8004Fig Orange Marmalade waffle.. haven’t seen this topping before..loved the different textures.. Unfortunately, the waffle wasn’t even warm…

IMG_8005Raspberry Caramel waffle….. another innovative flavour!  The raspberry caramel wasn’t as sweet as expected!

Extremely expensive but really yummy food.  Loved the innovative coffee and waffle flavours.
