Brunch in Fort Langley at Sabà Cafe

Brunch is a social-phenomenon that that has steadily grown in popularity. What once may have started as a late breakfast or early lunch is now its very own meal category. Now brunch is my favourite meal of the day, so any Sunday adventure of mine has to include brunch. For this brunch, I made a reservation at Sabà Cafe + Bistro

Sabà Cafe + Bistro: family-owned, made from scratch, pastries, rustic, terrace, seasonal, local

There are so many aspects of Sabà Cafe that resonated with me so I had to give them a visit. We were seated at a little table in the courtyard which by the way was gorgeous! I can just imagine dining under the stars on a warm summer's evening. If you visit Sabà Cafe you will understand what I am imagining in my head. It reminds me of a special night I had in California in Venice Beach at C&O Trattoria - unfortunately, I did not take any pictures there that night because it was late and I was tired.

Taves Family Farm | Pumpkin, Corn & Apple Fun

It is fall, it is October which means the countdown to my birthday is on, so let the Halloween fall shenanigans begin! My friend Ruby (@rubygillett ) and I are on a mission to compelete our ultimate fall fun bucket list. This is only the beginning and I cannot wait for everything else we have planned. Taves Family Farm has been on my list of things to do for quite sometime. Taves Family Farm is a third-generation apple orchard in Abbotsford. 

They have a huge selection of apples that you can U-Pick. There are the usual suspects like Gala and Fuji, but personally I am an Ambrosia gal. I find Ambrosia Apples are are crisper and cleaner in taste. There are other varieties too like Honey Crisp and Jona Gold. Basically there is an apple for everyone to u-pick at Taves Farmily Farm. 

Now fall just would not be complete without pumpkins. There is a pumpkin patch, but the highlight for me is the wicked pumpkin display that is hidden inside the corn maze. I am talking hundred of pumpkins of varying sizes arranged into a pathway and a "river." In the middle is a little hut covered in even more pumpkins. Super cute area and I took way too many pictures there. 

Taves family farms also gets the award for the toughest corn maze because we were literally lost in it. At one point I contemplated just pushing my way through the corn stalks because I was full on lost and felt like I was walking in circles. They kept the paths very narrow with zero clues on which way to go. 

These were more or less their free activities, but Taves Family has even more family friendly activities for a small fee. Petting zoo with cute goats, pedal-push carts, giant jumping pillow and other fun little activities for kids.
