Where: Finch’s Teahouse (353 West Pender, Gastown)

Hair of the dog: This little teahouse is booze-free. We sipped on an Americano and a heavenly Masala Chai latte.

What we ate: We opted for the House Breakfast ($8), with whole wheat toast, vine tomatoes, fresh dill and two medium-boiled eggs. Add prosciutto or avocado for $2 each (we did).

What we loved: This gorgeous Gastown locale is situated one door away from the famed Jimi Hendrix Shrine (temporarily moved its Union and Main spot), and has an all-too-bohemian charm. Window-side tables dot this corner café, filled and furnished with vintage curios.
