Grounds for Coffee (Broadway and Alma)
I have had a love affair with Grounds for Coffee for more than a decade now. It was the first place where I bought cinnamon buns outside of UBC, it is a favorite stomping ground for my good friend JT and myself, and it brings really good memories for both of us. It was also the coffee shop where I met my dear friend LB when I had to read her PhD dissertation for the N-th time As a graduate student (who at the time lived on campus), Grounds for Coffee was the place where I would meet my non-living-in-residence friends for a coffee. It was also the perfect place for a Sunday morning “pick-me-up” kind of visit, a cinnamon bun and a coffee for breakfast.
This past weekend, we drove all the way to Broadway and Alma to get our fix of cinnamon buns, and to do a bit of a walk down memory lane.
We had an opportunity to taste the cinnamon buns, which are to-die-for. All the coffee at Grounds for Coffee is certified organic. More information from their website:
