Beamers Coffee Bar – Canmore, AB

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

I really enjoy doing nothing with a cup of caffeine or hot drink and this time was no exception while in Canmore, Alberta. We stopped in Beamers Coffee Bar as it was recommended by a good friend.

My favourite place, Tim Hortons is now offering Lattes! This is very exciting, as I can get more drink options for cheap! 🙂 I finally got a chance to try one, and I gotta say, I’m really impressed with the initial first sight! There’s a smiley happy face on the top of my drink! The […]

Second Cup – Holiday London Fog

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

There’s really nothing more exciting for me to have a Holiday London Fog from Second Cup. I know I rave about Chai tea’s and what not, but this is always another neat alternative. London Fog is normally made of Earl Grey Tea and some Vanilla flavour shot with steamed milk. What makes the Holiday version […]
