Better Buzz California

Better Buzz is a Californian coffee shop with a few different locations around the San Diego area. I discovered this café while vacationing in Pacific / Mission Beach. Alan and I ordered acai bowls for breakfast and I got an amazing cappuccino while Alan got "the best coffee ever". This was basically an Americano with hints of vanilla creamer. We loved our breakfast and the coffee helped fuel us for a day of exploring!

The cafe had an awesome open air concept and we sipped the coffee by the window while enjoying the nice warm breeze. The vibe was very "Californian cool" with surfers strolling in without shoes and shirts, just in their bathing suits, to grab their morning coffee! What a life they live!!!

I really enjoyed this cafe and have already recommended it to a friend who visited California not long after me. If you find yourself in the area, make sure to stop into one of their 7 locations!

Life is better buzzed!

Sunny San Diego

Hi friends! I'm back from an amazing vacation in San Diego. Some of my highlights included surfing at Pacific Beach, hiking the Valido Trail in Laguna Beach and Torrey Pines, strolling around Balboa Park, relaxing on Coronado Beach, watching the sun set at Sunset Cliffs, and crossing the border by foot to Tijuana, Mexico.

Soucoupe Café II

Soucoupe Café is another cozy coffee shop that I was lucky enough to visit during my first Indie Coffee Passport adventures. This hidden gem is located in the Rosemont area in a residential area.

It was a little too busy to sit inside so C and I got our coffee to go and enjoyed them on the patio and then walked around the neighbourhood. Soucoupe is the quintessential Montreal café with it's charming vibe, friendly baristas and delicious coffee.

Café Pista

Hi Friends! August was a mad dash to finish the Indie Coffee Passport but I'm so excited that I was able to complete it once again!

One of my new discoveries was Café Pista, a beautiful and spacious coffee shop in the Rosemont area. Pista originally started as a seasonal mobile café, roaming the Montreal streets for special cultural and corporate events. They finally opened up a permanent location in the beautiful Château St-Vallier building, a local landmark.

Pista offers brunch in addition to coffee and pastries. I enjoyed my cappuccino and especially loved the large tables available to work on. You can also arrange to have them serve coffee at your next private or corporate event.

What a stunning café! I definitely need to try to come back here for their brunch!
