Second Cup Frappé

On a sunny afternoon a couple of weeks back, I made my way to the newly-renovated Second Cup Coffee space at King and John St. Upon arriving, I was immediately captivated by the stunning high ceilings and modern marble-inspired design, complete with a handcrafted Steampunk brewer that had me ogling unapologetically. I was soon met with a taste of summertime, the kind that’s got you in a perpetual thirst mode only espresso can satisfy. Complimentary sunglasses and flip-flops in bright…

Four years ago, Vicktor and Sonja North created “The Ambitious Brewery,” Garden Brewers. Rooted in Hamilton, the brewing couple knew that their purpose would be to make incredible, “bold yet balanced” brews. Their passion for the craft brewing community has developed into complex, yet flavourful beverages that are conversation starters. With their “ambitious” brews, come ambitious (but definitely needed) plans to create a bricks and motar brewery here in Hamilton. Although there is no firm date yet, the very idea…

It’s no secret that we love coffee here at FGFS. You can’t keep us from a good cold brew on a hot summer day, or from talking your ear off about what a year it’s been for Yirgacheff. Something we love equally? A good patio. Flowers and greenery are appreciated, but shade and location are key. For our on-going summer series of Hidden Gem patios we hit up Aroma’s newest location on College Street to test drive the patio with…

Photos by Yuli Scheidt For some time now, both Yuli and myself have been following the epic food ‘Grams of a chef who went by the name of @PrettyBoyLarge (real name Edward Furlani).
