On January 31, 2016 we presented the sixth crawl in a series of neighborhood brunch crawls in this 3rd year of our brunch crawl series we produced and presented with Tourism Vancouver for their Dine Out Festival. This event was a super success for all who attended. Participants had a chance to visit several restaurants through-out the Main Street area and taste all sorts of dishes on this unique food crawl.
Our registration was inside The Honey Shoppe where guests had a chance to browse the honey store and then taste some of the different honeys. Local Republica Coffee Roasters was on hand to serve guests coffee tasters as well.
Guests then enjoyed Chocolate Almond Crepes with Raspberry Honey Butter; along with Spiced Honey Glazed Almonds with Frozen Yogurt drizzled with sweet local wildflower honey. A mingling of spicy, cool and sweet sensations!
Down the street at The August Market they served their house-made nut milks, while local producer Good Habit Foods served their Granola; and The Lemon Square served guests a taste of their The Lemon Squares.
