The Brunch Buzz – 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…

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,…

Better For You Balls

Can you smell it? Spring is in the air!  It’s hard to believe after what feels like years in a cold vortex, but warmer weather is right around the corner.  Most folks are getting ready for a heavy dose of spring cleaning or getting their finances sorted after RRSP and tax season and if you’re…

The Bean Blog – 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…

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…

Skating at NPS

Wow. Its been almost 4 months since I last sat down and wrote a post.  I’m going through all the reasons I didn’t make the time and none of them are good enough.  It really makes you appreciate those bloggers and publications that put out content daily.  Its HARD.  I will try to be better….

Welcome to Miami

I’m going to try something different for my post today.  I just came back from vacation and I figured writing about my trip could be a great way to document the memories while also having a reference in case I’m looking to repeat the visit or someone needs recommendations.  So with that, here goes nothing! This time…

St. Lawrence Market Summer Series

What do you get when you combine one of the finest food markets in Canada and the culinary creativity of the Food Dudes? You get the first edition of the Summer Series at the St. Lawrence Market.  I had been hearing about this event all over my social feeds and on a few newsletters I…

The Pie Commission

I’ve mentioned before in previous posts that I work in what is probably the mecca of food options for lunch.  On College, around the corner from Kensington and a hop & skip to Dundas West.  I’ve also posted before about some of the delightful lunch excursions I’ve been on and decided that maybe I should…

Movies Under the Stars

This past August long weekend I got a chance to really explore the city like a tourist.  I went to Centre lsland for the first time, rode a bike around the waterfront and FINALLY crossed off something from my Summer bucket list that I’ve been wanting to do forever.  Movies in the park!  And much…

Amsterdam Brewhouse

It’s officially August which means that our Canadian Summer is slowly coming to an end.  My fingers are crossed on the warm weather carrying over in September since itI feel like I haven’t really had a chance to ENJOY the summer.  So in continuing my Patio Pursuits series I’ve been trying to suggest places with…

The Spoke Club

This one will be a quick one in an effort to keep up with my Patio series.  You can see I’m serious about this one 🙂  I don’t head up to the Spoke Club very often but every now and then one of my friends with a membership takes me there for some bevvies.  Have…
