Kung Fu Tea Shop 2.0

I was pretty sad when I found out Kung Fu Tea Shop closed their location on Dundas and University two years ago. It was my go-to spot for bubble tea when I was downtown and I would go out of my way to get my fix.

So I was pretty excited when they finally re-opened on Spadina, with a much bigger location and definitely with more foot traffic.

Little Pebbles

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.

Mildred’s Temple Kitchen

Mildred’s Temple Kitchen was definitely the top of my list when it came to brunch options – the endless stories I heard about their blueberry buttermilk pancakes were enough to entice me.

Saving Grace

We were in search of a brunch place to continue our monthly brunch sessions back when Pig was still in Toronto; we decided on Saving Grace without much expectation.

We headed there early and was surprised to see a line of about fifteen people already there; the restaurant opened and the small space filled up quickly.

I was on the hunt for a place to work after dinner on a Tuesday night, and found Funky Munky Cafe. I wasn’t looking for bubble tea, but imagine my surprise when I walked in to find that they offered bubble tea in addition to coffee and tea.

Independent coffee shops are popping up all over Markham, and the one with the biggest hype has to be Alchemy Coffee. Located in a strip plaza off Highway 7, it’s reputation brings customers in despite the sparse parking.

The Original Pancake House

Georgian Pecan Pancakes

Pancakes are something I enjoy in extreme moderation. While the first few bites are enjoyable, they quickly become a soggy, mushy mess when syrup is involved.

That being said, my friend tried pancakes at a location in New Jersey, and was determined to go again when we were in Portland. So we found ourselves here on a Friday morning, ready to dig in.

Nothing is quite as beautiful as colourful food – especially when it’s naturally so. I love trying new combinations to get inspiration for my own creations. The pictures from featuring the bowls from Kupfert & Kim have long intrigued me, and I finally had the chance to pop in during lunch.
