London Fog Cafe – Calgary, Alberta

I was looking for a non-chain cafe just to sit down at and enjoy some me time and ended up at the London Fog Cafe and it’s totally not what I was expecting. To be brutally honest, I was going to turn around and walk away as it wasn’t what I wanted at the time. It looked like it was a family ran place and I don’t know what I was expecting that day either. But, I stuck to my original plan as I didn’t really want to get into the car and start driving around again.

I ordered a Latte which I didn’t have too much expectations for, but it was pretty decent. To my delight and surprise, they attempted latte art!! The latte was nice and hot, with the right amount of everything! It kind of made my afternoon!

I knew I needed to eat, and if you know me personally, you’d know sometimes I would need to eat or I’d pass out. It’s one of those days! I got myself a Carrot Cake Loaf and it was definitely homemade! Just a side note, because I thought it was interesting, I did end up passing out after this anyway. I went to the European market in the same plaza and then passed out in London Drugs. People thought I was pregnant and had complications… how embarrassing, but this is how I deal with embarrassing situations – I share it! But, the carrot cake loaf wasn’t bad at all! It was very moist, a bit more dense than a muffin, and lots of carrot cake taste without the cream cheese icing. I think that’s what I really wanted too, the icing!

Overall, not a bad place to visit. With parking and lots to do in the same parking lot – it was easy to spend an afternoon here!! Passing out has absolutely nothing to do with this cafe, in fact it probably prolonged it for me! The service here was amazing, the ladies were super nice and asked if everything was alright. I was really pleased with my choice to come here and I’m sure I will return!

Second Cup – Honey Vanilla Tea Latte

I recently stopped into my favourite Second Cup and they had a new seasonal drink called Honey Vanilla Tea Latte. I really love this drink as I do like the taste of vanilla in my coffees or teas! This Honey Vanilla Tea Latte was made with English Breakfast tea steeped with vanilla and honey and finished with creamy microfoam.

The picture doesn’t do it’s justice, but it was quite a delicate drink! It was similar to their London Fog Tea, but better!! I think it is the honey that really elevates this drink to a whole new level! I sometimes find the regular London Fog just lacks a bit of flavour – which is probably why I really like the Christmas Holiday London Fog Latte too!

Second Cup – Holiday London Fog

There’s really nothing more exciting for me to have a Holiday London Fog from Second Cup. I know I rave about Chai tea’s and what not, but this is always another neat alternative. London Fog is normally made of Earl Grey Tea and some Vanilla flavour shot with steamed milk. What makes the Holiday version extra special is that they use a holiday Earl Grey tea, which is cherry flavoured. It seems like a lot of flavoured shots in the drink, but it’s actually quite good. It’s a bit on the sweeter side from both the cherry and vanilla, but it’s something I’ve associated the holiday season with as well. This is definitely a drink that you don’t need to add extra sugar in either!
