Vancouver's Hidden Gems pt. 1 ♥

Over on Wednesday morning, Suzie and I met up for breakfast over at Medina's, located at 556 Beatty Street. (Right by Stadium Skytrain) It was my first time being here, and I really did not know what to expect, other than rave reviews from Suzie. But with that being said, I had an absolutely lovely dining experience. Stepping in, I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere of the place, with the artwork hanging up on the walls, and the brick back splash. The food was fab, and so was the customer service. Our server was extremely nice, and always on his feet with serving us. As I wasn't fully recovered from my food poisoning yet, I decided to go light with breakfast. (Wish I was well, cus the breakfast menu was awesome.) We ordered a couple of things, including the Vanilla Latte, L'Omlette du Matin (Omelette of the Day), Roasted potatoes, as well as the Waffle + Mixed Berry topping. The waffle is SO yummy! I highly recommend it. It's just the perfect ounce of sweetness for breakfast. The price range for breakfast food is definitely a little more so than most places, but I would say it's worth it to spend on a quality breakfast every so often. Especially if it's at Medina's! Without a doubt, you will see me coming back to this place. Great food, and great service. Couldn't ask for more.

Vancouver looks awesome!! I'm sorry you got food poisoning tho : ( I keep seeing snippets of local gems due to the Olympics. That food is making me drool right now...and then I just scrolled down to see freakin dim sum (my love) and now I'm scrounging around the apt for food : X

Btw, too bad you didn't get that pink bandage skirt below! But those things def have a tendency to fit funny. I have a black one from H&M and love it. Some things I'm thinking to update my wardrobe w/ for spring are pastel and nude / neutral colored blouses, and some floral skirts.
