(1-4: will never come back, 5: pass (I’m okay with a tinier morsel), 6: acceptable, 7: okay, 8: good, 9: Wow! Please enlarge my morsel. 10: Perfection. I could eat a morsel of this every day!)
Will come back? Maybe for a good cup of coffee on campus
What I ate:
Cranberry Pesto Proscuitto Baguette – Proscuitto, mozzarella, field green and cranberries on an organic French baguette
  • 7.5/10
  • The sweet and savoury combination was quite good and I enjoyed it
  • There was a good amount of prosciutto – not too much to make it overly salty yet not so little that I couldn’t find it
  • I think it lacked some mozzarella because I couldn’t taste it
  • The tartness of the cranberries was good
  • The French baguette was also panini’d nicely so that it was crispy but it wasn’t dry
  • Wish there were more field greens in the sandwich
  • 7.5/10
  • The beans were roasted nicely, weren’t over roasted or bitter
  • There was some depth to the roast
  • The cappuccino itself was well made – not too strong but not so weak that it’s a latte
  • The foam could have been stiffer
Summary: Great place on UBC campus for a cappuccino and sandwich.
