Café Polonez


My last visit to Café Polonez was a number of years ago, and took place after a visit to the nearby High Park. In similar fashion, after a cherry blossom viewing last week, we decided to walk over to Roncesvalles for some Polish fare.

Hey Sugar


The bubble tea market in Markham is pretty saturated with the same few stores multiplying; so when we passed by Hey Sugar on Yonge and Finch, we decided to pop in.

The Homeway

Hillbilly Heaven with baked porky beans

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.

Kung Fu Tea Shop 2.0

Rose milk tea, Uji matcha latte, tieguanyin milk tea

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.
