I tried the new Starbucks Pineapple Refresher

Image
  I had stars that were going to expire so I decided to try the new refresher. I have seen some reviews of people that love it and others of people that hate it. It’s often sold out but I was in a location where they had it.  I am not really a fan of pineapple flavours. I like other refreshers from Starbucks and I love passion fruit so thought it might be good. There are options to add coconut milk or lemonade. I always get coconut milk in my coffee but I don’t like it in refreshers and I always like lemonade. The drink at first seemed okay but it had a strange bitter aftertaste after each sip. I am not sure the addition of the lemonade made it like that but my mom and I both didn’t like it. It was drinkable but not something I would order again. I will stick to the the Mango Dragon Fruit refresher as my go to refresher from Starbucks.  Let me know if you have tried it in the comments or on Instagram @livingottawalocal.

My friend told me about this place and then I saw an article about it. When I arrived it was 7:55 on a Friday morning there was a line up at 8 am. I have been inside for 15 minutes and the place is almost full most places in Vancouver are not full at this time so it must be good. It's very comfortable so far lots of people on their own like me nice comfortable decor. The menu has so many options there is something for everyone. I have a feeling the portions are huge so I went with the smallest portion meal a little veggie a bowl with crumbled biscuits, hash browns, veggies and 2 eggs $12. The first table just got their food it's a bit slow but I can't blame them considering how many people are here. The lunch menu looks good I  want to come back to try the Mac and cheese sandwich. I just got my food  this thing is not little at all it's very good. Did I mention the mushroom gravy? The biscuits are so good very tasty don't think I can eat it all though. My server c
