The Carleton

( All Posts andReviews andVegan )

Carleton Tavern’s hummus tabouli plate special with pita for $8.50. This hummus was really garlicky but it depends. Like home cooking, it isn’t always the same. Good tabouli.

Quick bites

What have we got in the freezer sort of night? A bit of this, a spot of that. Hot dog buns, grilled with minced garlic and butter, topped with good tomato sauce, corn and chickpeas and grilled some more. Nutty cous cous and romaine salad. Petit Bill’s chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Probably 2 people could […]

Viet Taste

New place in town this month. Crunchy noodles topped with vegetables. Menu choice is easy when there’s only a couple vegetarian options. Haven’t had this type of food before. It was pretty good. Good colours and flavours and freshness. We’d return. The rolls were the upper edge of average. My fortune.

Now he’s got chocolate cheesecakes, tartes, fondue, crepes, hot chocolate, meringues and now scones: Cranberry, white and dark chocolate […]

Café My House

( Reviews andVegan )

Considering the menu at Café My House. Inside the brick-walled and vine-covered back patio with the apple tree. It’s like a little piece of Europe. The menu changes every 2 months. There’s not much you can tell from the descriptions and where it says cheese tray, you should know that’s vegan cheese. While we were […]
