It had been a few months since I had attended the grand opening celebration event at Bump n Grind cafe. I was in the South Granville neighbourhood, so I decided to pop in for an afternoon coffee break.
Changing it Up
At Bump n Grind, coffees are rotated weekly so that customers can try something new each visit. They use coffee beans from small roasters like Fernwood Coffee and Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters based in Victoria and Phil and Sebastian from Calgary.
I ordered a chai latte, which was sweet, spicy and soothing.
Let’s Talk Pastries
They have a delicious offering of house-made pastries including peanut butter cups, earl grey shortbreads, and matcha white chocolate brownies. They also have different types of cookies for the cookie-lover: ginger snap, chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and quinoa as a gluten-free option.
On this visit, I had the Melted Moment – a shortbread sandwich cookie with raspberry filling. The shortbread was perfect: tender, crumbly and homemade-like.
Other Bump n Grind Food
They also have wraps, english egg muffins and croissant sandwiches on the menu. I *really* enjoyed the croissant sandwiches on my last visit; they were toasted perfectly.
This time, I ordered the smoked salmon croissant, which had cucumber, cream cheese with dill and capers. The croissant was very crispy and I heard a crunch when I bit into it.
Bump n Grind offers a unique independent coffee shop experience in the South Granville area. For your next coffee break, consider visiting this cafe and satisfy your sweet tooth with some of their pastries too.
