Newbie to BC: a request for help.

We will be relocating to BC, probably Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows/TriCities area by the end of summer.

For some background on the reasons why, and our journey so far, see my DU2 journal post of 1-16-10 here:


I an writing to request help from BC DU'ers in our settling process. If the group members don't mind, I would like to post a series (not all at once) of separate requests for advice on various topics, from cell phone carriers and ISP's to neighborhoods, insurance, etc. I thought separating topics would help me screen information easier, rather than a random free-for-all. Hopefully, my posts won't distract too much from the serious political discussions and news updates posted here.

I'm doing my own research on my options of course, but wanted to hear from like minded DU'ers about their own personal experiences and preferences.

So, to start things off on a lighter note, can anyone recommend a good doughnut/coffee shop in the Maple Ridge/Tricities area that isn't Tim Horton's/Starbucks, and a good natural foods store in the same area that isn't Whole Foods?

I'll post more meaningful requests in the near future.

Thanks in advance for any and all help!
