I admire what is happening at The Water Shed Arts Cafe. It’s a lovely cafe that uses its walls to promote local artists and their space to promote local talent. They also make their own breads using Chilliwack milled grains (Anita’s Organics) and source many of their ingredients from Fraser Valley producers. It’s a cozy place with high ceilings and tonnes of light.
Love this sign here. Good food is worth the wait.
They make fantastic beverages and desserts here. Pictured above is a chai tea latte and peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. The tea latte was so yummy as well as the cookie.
I like how you have your choice of milk or dark when you have hot chocolate here. I went with the dark chocolate since I had my eye on these beautiful pecan sticky buns. The sticky bun had these amazing crunchy bits on the bottom. They have a rotating selection of desserts including cheesecakes and pastries.
Their turkey and harvarti sandwich was so good. I really loved the cranberry bread used in this sandwich. Today’s soup was a rustic tomato which went perfectly with all the melty cheese.
The Water Shed showcases local artist’s work (for sale). This month’s artist is April Lacheur. I have been a fan of April’s work for a long time (one of my friends is friends with her.) I have always loved this picture. It is so Vancouver with the cityscape and snow capped mountains. I like her unique style when she paints trees.
This one is called ‘Four Seasons.” There were also greeting cards and calendars made by April. To see her website, click here. I have a deep respect for businesses that support their community. The Water Shed is doing exactly that as well as making delicious food.
