Food scene
A cozy semi-quiet place to get chat with a friend, get some work done or drink bubble tea, a popular milk or fruit tea drink mixed with deliciously chewy tapioca pearls. Gets noisy when a lot of people order slushy drinks (because of the ice grinder) but is a great place otherwise.

Sightseeing
Feel like you’re far away from the city within minutes! There’s one paved road leading all the way to Southridge, but if you bring shoes with solid grip you can take one of the dirt trails into the ravine itself for a bit of urban forest exploration.

Costumes e cultura
People tend to say "thank you" when exiting a bus.
