Lunch at La Palma

Dundas West might slowly be becoming one of my favourite areas of the city.  It’s unassuming, chilled out, unpretentious and home to some of my favourite cocktail bars. The only thing I would change is their weekend opening hours.  How is a girl supposed to get day drunk if you only open at 6!? I…

Breakfast at Simit & Chai Co.

Have you ever been scrolling through your Instagram feed, seen a picture of food and had the reaction “I must have this!”?  So, this happened to me with Simit & Chai Company.  I kept seeing these gorgeous and delicious looking sandwiches on what looked like wider and thinner bagels.  I love me a bagel so…

Brunch at Lena Restaurant

So I’ve realized that I’m making the rounds of some of the most instagramable spots in the city but my no means on purpose.  I feel a ‘best of’ list coming on.  Today’s adventure has me at Lena Restaurant for brunch with some of my fave gals.  It’s a grey and rainy Sunday so I…

Dinner at Oretta

I remember a while ago, I was finding myself at really small, dimly lit, dark places for dinner which was awful for taking pictures but the food was on point.   Now there seems to be a resurgence of more open, brightly lit and larger spaces that are making their rounds on all the “must try”…

Exploring Coffee Shops at Quantum Coffee

Well this might be a first.  I guess I can call this live blogging since I’m currently sitting in Quantum Coffee as we speak.  It’s the Friday of Easter long weekend and I had some work (and blogging) to catch up on so I decided to head out and hit one of the many coffee…

Drinks at Alo Restaurant

It was a cold, rainy (maybe romantic?) and wet Thursday when I found myself in the cozy, candlelit bar of Alo.  A few good friends and I had just finished a gluttonous dinner of authentic Chinese food and we were looking for a place to indulge in a few tasty libations.  We started to make…

Brunch at Cafe Neon

I’m surprised it took me this long to write a new brunch post seeing as it’s by far my favourite thing to do on the weekend.  Aside from sleeping in.  Although it’s probably because I’m so hungry by the time we get to brunch that I forget to take pictures and then there goes the plan…

Dinner at Piano Piano

Every now and then I go out for dinner and leave just in LOVE with my entire experience.  This was the feeling when I left Piano Piano a few nights ago.  It had been on my list for some time and quite a few people I know had been with raving reviews.  Needless to say,…

Exploring Coffee Shops at Rooster Coffee

I had an idea.  I have the opportunity with my full-time job to work a few days from home and instead of sitting at my dining table in my pyjamas, I thought, “why not go to coffee shops in the city and write about them?” Yes that is exactly how I think. And so this…

Dinner at Planta

My first blog post of 2017! If only you could see how long my list has grown.  I’ve had the chance to cross a few off so clearly I’m just behind in telling you about my experiences.  I’m going to start out with the most recent adventure which took me and two of my long-time…
