We were looking for a nice place to sit down and do a bit of blogging. I enjoy going to Analog and it is a place that makes me happy, any of their locations. This day we went to their 17th Avenue location.
I love ordering Mocha as it’s coffee and chocolate mix. It’s always a delicious choice. The nice thing about Analog is that they always do their latte art, no matter what! I always appreciate a simple thing like that and I never mind waiting a few extra minutes for a pretty drink.
I ordered an Apple Cinnamon Scone and to be honest, it was rather dry. It tasted good, but it just wasn’t what I would expect from here.
We also ordered their Ham and Cheese Croissant as it was a bit of a lunch during this visit. This was really delicious as they heated it back up, and the croissant was light and flaky!
My other half ordered a Latte which was a smooth and creamy latte and he enjoyed it thoroughly. I enjoyed it as well, especially next to my scone!
Overall, this place is a great place to go. This isn’t our first time here and it won’t be our last. We enjoy Fratello’s coffee! There’s not always a table for you as a lot of people do sit down. We didn’t stay too long but there was a quiet period around 3PM so we stayed until the next pocket of busyness. Parking was alright for us as well since we lucked out with the timing.

My coworkers and I have been talking about going to pho for awhile, and this one afternoon – we went! They brought me to Pho Dau Bo for their pho and it was so good that I brought my husband there!
I really enjoy having Salad Rolls so naturally I ordered them. I was kind of hungry so it didn’t matter. The salad rolls were really good and fresh, the skin was thin and delicate but it held the roll together.
I guess this location is known for their Pho Sate, my husband had to try it with beef! He really loved the flavour of the soup and the meat was really good. It’s like no other satay pho we’ve had! I really enjoyed the soup and he seemed to agree with me!
I ordered the weekend special, which was Bun Bo Hue and it has always been one of my favourite dishes – although not every restaurant has it. This one only has it on weekends.
Overall, the experience here was exceptional! The service was friendly and fast, the food had large portions and they were really tasty, the atmosphere was clean and comfortable – it accomplishes its purpose and there’s quite a bit of parking outside in the Little Saigon Center!

We went to The Coup for my sister-in-law’s birthday as this was a place she picked – which is great, I’ve never been here before! It’s a cute little place on 17th Avenue which caters to local & organic, and meat free!
We started our day with our drinks, where I ordered a Chocolate Chai and it was rather tasty. It’s not as spicy as I would like it, but it was a good blend.
I decided on ordering the Un-Traditional which turned out to be a plate of food that I actually liked quite a bit! It had scrambled eggs, toast, rosemary hashbrowns, king oyster mushroom bacon, smoked maple baked beans. I really enjoyed the rosemary hashbrowns, it was very tasty and quite different from other hashbrowns!
My husband had ordered the “un-baked” hippy split that was a mixture of granola with quinoa, banana, and hemp hearts made with almond milk. This bowl was actually quite tasty and really filling!
Our overall experience here was positive. It satisfied the meat lover in me and my husband – still leaving feeling satisfied and really full. It was a great place and now I know I can take my sister here when she visits as she’s vegan, it will be easier for her!
