Hi there, do you have a stroller and a child? Do you have a matching set of Lululemon yoga gear? How about North Face day wear?

Well if you don’t have any of those, you should probably bugger off, because I’m fairly convinced TurF has a door policy that includes only those things.

Jokes aside, it’s an amazing place to sit and people watch, because almost like clockwork you see wave after wave of people wearing the above, filter through this beautiful but functional coffee shop / yoga studio / brunch place / maybe sort of a work place. Whatever it is, it’s well worth a trip inside when you’re out buying overpriced wine, weed and women’s clothing on 4th Ave.

Vancouver Coffee Snob Recommendation: Do not be fooled into thinking that Oatmeal, pear and ginger is oatmeal… it’s a smoothie, and you should get one, because it’s amazing. Try to avoid ordering a side smoothie though, because that’d be embarrassing (I totally didn’t do that, shut up, you can’t prove it). Coffee is from Moja, so expect dark espresso. As such, I favour a latte.
