During my day in Prince Rupert, the final day of my northwest BC road trip, I had a wonderful time exploring the neat little area of Cow Bay. In the morning, I stopped in at Cowpuccino's, a cute and eclectic cafe complete with cow photos from around the world. I enjoyed a latte and a delicious banana raspberry muffin, and spent some time admiring the photographs and unique decor. I was surprised and impressed to learn that all of their desserts and pastries are made from scratch in just the small kitchen behind the bar. I would love to go back and try one of their homemade pies! It was a misty morning in Prince Rupert but that didn't stop me from checking out all the little shops and galleries that fill the area. I also took some time to explore the sunken gardens close by, which would have been a beautiful spot to sit and enjoy a coffee on a drier day. For lunch, I stopped in at the famous Cow Bay Cafe to enjoy some more homemade creations. I decided on dilled salmon and halibut chowder with salad and house made bread, which was tasty and comforting on the rainy day. This seaside community is an awesome place to spend the day but make sure you bring your raincoat so you can brave the rain like the locals!
