Skookum Eats with Lil’ L: Lost + Found Cafe

Although we were going to brave the heat and hit up a Blenz on West Hastings, we had taken a wrong turn and ended up in a rougher patch of the Downtown Eastside….at least it used to be. Lil’ L was telling me of a relatively recent visit to a cozy little coffee shop in the area called Lost + Found Cafe. The fact something like that was smack dab in the core of the DTES just screamed gentrification lol. But anyways, onto the food review!

Travel Guide: Seattle

Seattle. A few hundred kilometers south of Vancouver, it boasts a wide variety of shopping destinations, food adventures, and just sights to see!

Like my other guides, to Oregon and Hawaii, this one will give a general overview of some of the things to be seen and done down there!

Valerio’s Tropical Bake Shop (South Center)

Amongst my travels in Seattle, I noticed there was this large department store in South Center that EVERYBODY seemed to be flocking to!

Anywho, on this trip I visited Valerio’s Tropical Bake Shop and picked up a pack of Pande Monay (2.69).

Starbucks (Seattle Center/The Armory) & Market Grill (Woodland Zoo Food Court)

Since these two are relatively small posts in themselves, I’m going to join them together.

As Seattle is the birthplace of Starbucks, why not try one of their beverages that’s slightly closer to the source? After exploring the Space Needle, we did just that!

Subway (Seattle Premium Outlets)

I think the only time I ever eat Subway is when I’m traveling down south. After spending what seemed like an eternity wandering the aisles of the Seattle Premium Outlets, we were famished and needed to refuel our tanks. At the food court, there was your typical Chinese fast food joints and other BBQ sub places. Since everything else was pretty unreasonably priced, we hit up Subway due to, I can’t believe I’m saying this, its great deals.

Cheesecake Factory (Westfield South Center)

For YEARS now, Congeez has been suggesting that if I’m ever near one, I should try a Cheesecake Factory. Most times I just agree and end up never going (LOL don’t kill me!), but finally the time had come to visit and review it! After exploring South Center a bit, we were famished and one of the closest places to hit up, that wasn’t Olive Garden, was, you guessed it, Cheesecake Factory!
