Some people like rainy days and others do not. For some folks, the rain can be a welcome occurrence, as it allows them the opportunity to sit back, read a book and relax. For others, the rain spoils their plans for outdoor activities like hiking, camping or simply basking in the sun.
Either way, one thing is for certain, we cannot control the weather on our travels, even with the best of laid plans. And sometimes, as hard as we might try, we cannot out-drive it either; sometimes the rain is here for a stay, whether it be lingering or looming.
So let us embrace it and not race it!
One of my favourite rainy-day pastimes—or any day, really—is to sit back with a great cup of coffee, and I know a lot of our travelers enjoy their cup of joe too! So let me give my fellow caffeine-aficionados the scoop on the lovely cafes here in Fort Nelson!
Located in the middle of our shopping district, is a charming place called Capp*A*Lu’s. You’ll find it in the same shopping plaza as Subway and Rexall IDA pharmacy. They have a great selection of hot and cold drinks as well as some delicious homemade goodies; Capp*A*Lu’s is known to make some very fanciful cakes and cupcakes worth every last bite. Here you can grab an extra-hot macchiato and fresh baked item and cozy up on their couch.
Just around the corner from Capp*A*Lu’s you can find Down to Earth Health Shop. In this modern and eco-friendly building, you will find a bright and spacious café. Committed to both green living and healthy lifestyles, Down to Earth has a variety of organic treats ranging from Power Balls to cream cheese-topped cinnamon buns. Indulge yourself with good company over great, earth-friendly coffee.
Less than a block away from the Visitor’s Centre is the Northern Rockies Café. Stop here not only for a great cup of Seattle’s Best coffee, but also if you need to fill the gap in your stomach; they have yummy daily soup and panini specials as well as several homemade entrees.
So, go ahead and take a rainy day and turn it into something special, something that you will remember, by visiting coffee shops and indulging in the local flavours and conversations.
