Flip That Romance Filming Locations
‘Flip that Romance’ is a part of Hallmark’s Spring Fever line-up. Therefore, the location scouts were looking for a site that would complement the vibe of spring. And just like several other Hallmark flicks, Canada was chosen as a backdrop for this romantic tale. The film was extensively shot in Vancouver and across British Columbia from January 17, 2019, to February 6, 2019. Here are the specific filming locations.
Sidney, British Columbia
‘Flip That Romance’ was filmed in a sea-side town, Sidney. It is a breezy town on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, which gets its name from one of the Gulf Islands, Sidney Island.
When Jules and Lance are not butting heads at the Duplex, Jules likes to spend her time with either her girlfriend Teri or her best friend Kenny, and her go-to cafe is Kat’s Cafe.
Well, the production unit chose a famous fromagerie and wine bar called The Farmer’s Daughter and transformed it into Kat’s Cafe. Here’s a behind the scene picture of the Kat’s Café, posted by Fiona Vroom, who plays Teri in the movie.
