Where: The Hideout Café (716 Carnarvon)
Neighborhood: Downtown New Westminster
Hair of the Dog: No booze, but they keep a stocked bar of flavoured syrup – such as salted caramel and marshmallow. We went with the salted caramel latte with almond milk.
What we ate: Homemade Granola. Creamy yogurt on a bed of house-made granola, topped off with fresh berries such as strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. A sprig of mint finishes the dish. A-plus for taste and presentation. $6.99
What we loved: One corner of the café is stocked with board games, the other side is best for a quick meal. Play Battleship with a friend (or stranger) over a second cup of coffee.
