A Magical Coffee Shop

amadeo-bakehouse-seating-areaSituated in the quiet neighbourhood of West Vancouver is this small coffee shop that is truly magical and charming named Amadeo Bakehouse and Coffee Shop.

The wall is decorated with murals, handpainted by an artist.  The seats have figureheads, each one featuring a different person.

The pastries, European, of different types, scones, croissants, eccles, cinnamon rolls, bagels,…… I wanted to take some photographs, but I was so enamored with the paintings, the furniture and the wall, I did not bother with the pastries.  Part of the reason is because I knew that I will be back, not just once, but frequent.
