Happy Hour of the Week: Start early with a perfect breakfast happy hour
This cold snap has us feeling like a cocktail to warm up before work isn’t such a bad idea. Luckily, the happy hour at Medina Cafe has exactly what we need to raise our core body temperature and successfully complete the journey to the office. Don’t tell our bosses!
The Medina Cafe’s happy hour runs from 9AM-11AM daily. The rare morning happy hour, a unicorn if we’ve ever seen one.
In true happy hour format, they’re offering drink specials like $8 cocktails, $5 beers and $6 mimosas. We don’t know anyone who’s grabbing a mezcal-based cocktail at 9AM, but we want to! The Morning Dee-Lite is probably a better choice, with Fernet Branca, espresso and juniper bitters mixed in. Just justify it by calling it a morning coffee.
Of course, it’s going to be impossible to resist some food once you’re seated. In the name of frugality (and since you’re there early), we recommend snagging a couple of liege waffles before they sell out for the day. Plus, toppings ranging from dark chocolate to a mixed berry compote are only a buck each.
So, the next time your friends suggest Medina Cafe for weekend brunch, be the absolute baller that shoots them down by saying, “Sorry, I already swung by this week before work, can we try somewhere new?” Look for us sipping mimosas while we research our next guide.
Happy drinking, Vancouver!
