I'm giving up coffee for Lent, so far so good. I actually got a cream Earl Grey Latte here.
Italian sodas and gelato. Home made pastries. Gourmet coffee & Specialty Teas.
When Jasmine contacted me for a collaboration, I couldn't refuse. You see, I've known Jasmine for quite some time in the blogosphere. She took a bit of a break and came back with her new blog, Be The Plebeian, which features her daily California adventures accompanied by her outstanding writing and photography skills. Similarly, I took a break from blogging and when I came back I learned to focus my blog topics on local community spots and events. I feel like both of our blogging tastes have matured from the days when we would merely showcase daily ootds. 

If there was one thing both Jasmine and I developed with our respective blogs, I think that's our love for local cafes. We have decided to simultaneously feature a new local cafe for this post. I went to Folio Cafe over the weekend not only to check it out but also to accomplish some writing work. Situated within the Canadian Mennonite University Marpeck Commons, Folio's menu consists of hot beverages, home made pastries, gelato and even a soup & panini feature of the day. This cafe caters to the student crowd, which was quite apt for what I needed to do that day. With its spacious interiors and numerous seating, it's perfect for study groups and meetings; and at the same time a great spot if you want to try something new in the city.

Now head on over to Jasmine's blog to see her feature on Daily Dose Cafe.

  1. I love how you styled the scarf in this outfit! Best of luck giving up coffee, I only use it in baking and can't even recall if I have ever finished a cup of my own, tea is always my go-to! I would love to meet up one of these days, when it is nicer out of course;)
