The route passed Victoria Square, past which I had stealthily sped on several occasions in previous explorations.
A mini black canvas tote was also chosen with the intention of using it for camera carrying, because there was no way I'd be tossing leak-able lunches into a fifty-dollar bag - and unlined at that! (Little did I realize that the same product was available on SSENSE for five dollars less...)
Their coffee was quite good, though steeply priced. I had contemplated the more economic alternative of drip coffee (at three dollars), but foregoed it on the basis that it was available hot only. Contrary to my expectations, the Black Sesame Fox Sable was horribly dry and dismal. The Thai ahgase broke off a leg and nodded in agreement. Hints of black sesame were nowhere to be found, in spite of its speckled appearance. The standard for sable cookies was of buttery, sandy nature and minimal sweetness, but Café Kitsuné's edition had merely succeeded in being bland and crumbly.
The intersection features a historic building as expressive as the Gooderham Building of St. Lawrence. It is known as the Leckie Building, a heritage building bearing historic significance as a point of transport, marking Vancouver's foray into commercial expansion.
