I got lost in a Spotify black hole recently, when I was searching for the most terrible blues songs I could find.

One of those songs happened to be called Whiskey and Smoked Cheese… wait, nope, that’s an ice cream flavour at Tangram Creamery, the most amazing Kits ice cream shop you’ve never heard of.

I know what you are thinking, “Oh VancouverCoffeeSnob, if you weren’t so handsome I’d say you were crazy”, but I assure you, despite how daft that flavour is, it was actually pretty damn amazing. Their entire range of ice cream is delicious, but their house-roasted coffees are INCREDIBLE. They are one of the true gems of the Kitsilano coffee scene.

Vancouver Coffee Snob Recommendation: Get your true snob on, with one of their pour overs, preferably Ethiopian. Try the ice cream flight then realize you’re thirsty again and quench yourself with a nitro cold brew. Tell them I sent you… they won’t give you anything but maybe I’ll get a kickback one day.
