The idea of eggnog has always repulsed me. As a vegan, I never had an overwhelming desire to partake in this particular Christmas tradition. Blegh, eggs! It had never crossed my mind that there could be an alternative that I might actually enjoy!
And that’s where vegan eggnog comes in.

Let’s face it, Toronto is filled with coffee shops. Choosing which caffeine oasis is for you is a lot harder than it should be. There are just so many options! As an aspiring coffee shop entrepreneur, I often find myself wondering how some of these tiny, almost unnoticeable cafes can thrive the way they do, and how great of a struggle it is for those that do not.
That’s where the Indie Coffee Passport comes in. Making things a little easier…
“ICP ❤ is a new twist on a cool concept. It is [the] Indie Coffee Passport for coffee shops younger than 3 years. Since 2010, The Passport has introduced you to many wonderful independent coffee shops – new and old – around the city. The idea was that once you discovered places you loved, you’d return to them even without your Passport. With ICP<3, we’re introducing you to some of Toronto’s newest and best independent coffee shops. We hope you’ll enjoy discovering the new places while returning to those you already love.”
Once you get your Passport, you’re entitled to one free drink from a designated menu at each cafe. Sound like a dream? It gets better. It’s only $22 for 22 drinks. You can purchase your very own Passport at any of the cafes included on the Passport, listed below:
I’m so excited to start using mine! Keep following Vegan Girlfriend for coffee-related updates as I hit each of the 22 cafes. Challenge accepted.
