We recently participated in the Sporting Life 10K for Camp OOCH. After eating bagels and bananas on the lawn of Coronation Park, we shuffled our way back to the starting line. Seeing as we were rarely in the Mount Pleasant area, we quickly looked up brunch places and decided to try out the Homeway.
We met several people in Yellowknife that recommended one place; Bullock’s Bistro. Their speciality is fish, and it’s pretty much the only thing on the menu (we called to ask for vegetarian options for our fellow vegetables – their only option: salad and fries).
We came here on our last night in Yellowknife, and in retrospect, not the greatest idea.
The first international location of Konjiki Ramen landed in Toronto in late 2017. As my friends and I are always up for a good bowl of ramen, we decided to pay a visit on the coldest day of the year in hopes there would be a shorter line.
When looking for places to eat in Berlin, House of Small Wonder popped up among the top recommendations. After seeing photos from a couple of friends who were in Berlin just before I was, I was determined to pay a visit. I didn’t even know what the menu was like; it was the above photo that drew me in.
When we got to Vancouver, our first priority was checking in to our hostel and taking a long-awaited shower (it had been 4 days!).
Our next priority was getting a good meal; Catch 122 Cafe Bistro was just down the street from us, so we decided to grab brunch at 3pm.
We had a bit of time before our train, so we decided to spend some time at a cafe instead of lugging our bags around town.
Starbucks and Second Cup were just down the street, but we decided to try a more local cafe.
I just came back from a week in Vancouver, and living in Gastown, we made it our mission to get our daily caffeine kick from a new place every morning.
Finch’s was not originally on my shortlist of cafes I made before we came, but we passed by it one morning and thought it was adorable – so we made a mental note to come back another morning.
One of my favourite types of cake has to be the chiffon cake; so when QuirkyAesthetics suggested stopping by Little Pebbles for some cake, I readily agreed.
Located in Kensington Market, they have a sign outdoors advertising coffee and Japanese desserts that certainly captured the attention of many passer-bys.
