We love to eat. We love to drink. We love to travel.
We invite you to eat, drink and travel with us! We want to share our favourite things with you... so join us as we taste new foods, explore new places and experience new things.
A little bit about us... Kyle and I (Rachel) have been married 6 years (whoa, already?! how'd that happen?). We met in grade school (adorable, I know) and became best friends in high school. A couple years later starting dating, then got engaged, and now here we are, happily married with a coffee shop.
I love everything about owning a coffee shop. The coffee, of course. I like drinking it (I'm highly caffeinated as I type this), making it, smelling it, sharing it and I love serving it. I enjoy baking and cooking new recipes. My favourite is taking a classic recipe and adding a twist, like adding orange zest, toasted hazelnuts and extra butter to your Great Grandma's date square recipe that's been passed down for several generations untouched (sorry, Grandma). And most of all, I love the people. I think that's been the most rewarding part of owning a coffee shop - the people. I had no idea when we started that I would meet so many interesting, inspiring and genuine people. The friends that have got behind us, supported and encouraged our dream is humbling and motivating. It keeps me excited about doing what I do. And the people I work along side with are fantastic. I get to spend everyday with my favourite people doing my favourite things. Win win.
So why did I start this blog? Well, we love to travel. We love to explore new places and visit restaurants and coffee shops we've never been to before. And friends ask us for recommendations all the time. So I figured I'd start writing some of these places down. I also want to write a cookbook, so I thought this would be good practice.
I will be posting our favourite destinations. The restaurants, coffee shops and cocktail bars you must visit. As well as my favourite new recipes I'm serving at the cafe. And whatever else inspires us.
We'd love to share our journey with you! Shouldn't life be our favourite adventure?! And so the adventure begins...
