Wellington Sandwiches

( Reviews )

People keep telling us it’s good. It feels like a community in there with regulars and conversations, not hermetically sealed revolving door or part time workers for megacorp. Could be small town anywhere. The wrap was food, and a vegetarian option. But the butter tart! As if from a church bakesale, the find of the […]

A Thing for Chocolate: Sconing up on new things

( Reviews )

A Thing for Chocolate crepe. My default favourite kind: brie with maple syrup and pecans. Omar is continually expanding the chocolate section so it’s fun to watch the jaw-dropped grins of chocoholics on seeing the selction. Now he’s got chocolate cheesecakes, tartes, fondue, crepes, hot chocolate, meringues and now scones: Cranberry, white and dark chocolate […]

Bonus Post: Pizza

( Reviews )

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 […]

Kelly’s

( Reviews )

A new menu item at Kelly’s near Tweed — deep fried pickled beans. How could I not, and with hot sauce. Phew, they still had some Yule log left. Sponge cake, mousse and some cherry in sauce inside that chocolate crust. Always a pleasant spot to stop at on the turnoff from Hwy 7.

Getting Freshii

( Reviews andVegan )

A chain that is devoted to green and healthy and fast. It’s menu is an option or customize. I started to customize, with a hankering for quinoa and soup. Healthy, liquid, good for winter. Asian veggie soup comes with rice noodles is the standard for a reason tho. It was alright. Have I habituated to […]
