Cafe Onion


Cafe Onion made its initial impression due to the oddity of it, as well as the beauty of the original warehouse-like location. Having expanded to a total of three stores, the Anguk location is arguably one of the most popular, located in a traditional hanok setting.

Victoria Bakery


While Instagram alone no longer easily captures my heart, good reviews via videos still manage to pique my interest. The beautiful counter of baked goodies caught my heart earlier this year, and upon realizing I would visit South Korea sooner than anticipated, I quickly added Victoria Bakery to my list of must-visits.

Lady M


During our last meet-up in Causeway Bay, the topic of desserts came up, and I mentioned how I had never tried Lady M. My friend informed me that the rose crêpe cake was a Hong Kong exclusive, and as a fan of cake, rose, and exclusivity, we made a plan to meet up again later that week for some indulgence.

Bean Around the World


Update (Spring 2018): this location has been closed.

There aren’t many coffee shops in Markham that aren’t Second Cup, Starbucks, and Tim Hortons… and now there is Bean Around the World, a coffee shop from British Columbia that opened its first location here.

Bang Bang Ice Cream and Bakery


My friend took us to Bang Bang Ice Cream and Bakery for some late summer ice cream sandwiches. It was warm enough that day to enjoy cold treats, and we all ended up getting a full ice cream cookie sandwich.

Hibiscus doughnut
Hibiscus doughnut

We were walking around Smorgasburg at Brooklyn Bridge Park, and came across this doughnut stand. With a variety of yeast doughnuts with amazing toppings, the hibiscus one caught our eye due to its bright magenta-red icing… and it did not disappoint. We just tried one doughnut and it was enough for me to know that this is probably the best doughnut I’ve ever had.
