Fall Eats at Good Earth Coffeehouse

The weather here in Edmonton is getting cooler as Fall has officially arrived in Alberta. To celebrate the fall weather, Good Earth CoffeeHouse invited me to try some of their fall favourites at one of their coffeehouses. 

They sent me a menu to guide me through the experience. This is great since most of the time we go to coffee shops for the drinks and then forget to order snacks to accompany the drinks. Here are some suggested pairings of what you could get the next time you order a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Good Earth. Below are some pictures of their suggested pairings.

The first course was a chicken pot pie with herbed pastry paired with their newest light roast coffee of Flor di mi Terra from Colombia. Unfortunately, when we went this past Saturday to the Campus Towers Good Earth they did not have the chicken pot pie but a beef stroganoff. I had my heart set on the chicken pot pie, so I'll update this post when I have the chance to try it.  

The second course with the Kale Pesto Flatbread and Sicilian Flatbread with a Pumpkin Spice Latte. On the day we tried this course out, there was only one of the two flatbreads available. The Sicilian Flatbread, though, is chock full of Italian salami, roasted peppers and likely a few more olives than I prefer but Dan thought it was great. However, the cheese on top helped and it paired well with the Pumpkin Spice latte.

Here is the last course that we had - Pumpkin Spice Muffin paired with a Vanilla Rooibos Latte.

  2. As a young girl, watching my grandmother making pie crust from scratch for Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. She would give us kids the leftover dough to put cinnamon & sugar on and bake to make little cookies in whatever shapes we wanted.

  4. One of my favourite fall memories is when I was little and my Dad would rake up the leaves in the yard into piles, not to rake up into bags, but for us to jump in.
