  I was expecting to have a meal kit delivery from vegano foods but there was a delivery problem. This leaves me with no groceries or meal plan for the week. I decided it is time to use some of the ingredients I have in my apartment.  I had a box of daiya alfredo I used the sauce a long time ago and never used the brown rice pasta. I have a few types of vegan cheese so perfect to try vegan Mac and cheese.  This is the first time I have tried Sproud plant milk it’s pea based and thick so I thought it would be good for the sauce. Step one was adding melt vegan butter to the pan. Then around one cup of milk. Then spices I used curry powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper.

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
