LOCAL FEATURE: Crepe Delicious

Location: 100 City Centre Drive http://www.crepedelicious.com If it’s not pancakes or french toast for breakfast, it’s crepes (from scratch) at our house, so to receive two packs of Crepes De Licious mix in the mail was quite refreshing. The mix was very easy to use, having only to add milk or water, and they turned out quite … Continue reading

Cora’s Breakfast and Lunch

Location: 277 Wellington Street West, Toronto http://www.chezcora.com Did people eat more in the ’90s? I’m not sure. All I know is I ordered the 1990s Harvest for breakfast at Cora’s on Saturday and it sure was a gigantic portion!  There’s not a whole lot of selection for brunch downtown…I mean, really downtown, near the Queens Quay … Continue reading

Recipe: Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Just in time for Saturday morning’s breakfast! I’d only ever made Aunt Jemima pancakes when I was younger so when I found this recipe for pancakes on Allrecipes.com (with 4.5 stars and 3,327 reviews!), I had to try it. It’s easily the best pancake recipe, ever, and the only one I use and will continue … Continue reading

NEW: Little Nicky’s Coffee

Location: 375 Queen St. W. Toronto Open only 4 weeks now, Little Nicky’s already seems to have a cult following of donut lovers. Mini donuts, that is. Made on a cute little mini assembly line. Old-fashioned, little, powdery-sugar-and-cinnamon-covered deep fried goodness.  We love the retro, dinery vibe, and with Ray Charles playing in the background, “A.Mat” … Continue reading

NEW: Frankly Eatery

Location: 1118 Queen Street East, Toronto http://www.franklyeatery.com So, I first posted about Frankly Eatery in April.  Our friends opened up Frankly (the name deriving from them not knowing quite frankly what name to give it) in Leslieville and we finally got the chance to check it out this past weekend. Loving the signage outside and how warm and cosy the … Continue reading

How to etc

I’ve been swamped at work and with photography stuff (that I can’t wait to share with you!) and haven’t been able to post as frequently as I’d like. Also, in the last couple of days we went to The Wine Bar, Jump (again) and The Host and I can’t wait to share my reviews with … Continue reading

Frankly Eatery NOW OPEN!

Our friends have just opened up Frankly Eatery, down in Leslieville. Here’s the scoop directly from one of the owners: “Our menu will consist of fantastic coffee, an all day brunch type menu with delicious items for both gourmet breakfast or lunch and a warm friendly atmosphere.  You may also be wondering why we chose … Continue reading

Frugal Fare #5: The Bellwoods Bar & Grill

Location: 756 Queen St W., Toronto Cost: Under $10 for breakfast It’s almost refreshing to find a place in TO that doesn’t cater to all your dietary concerns (ie. lactose-free and/or soy milk, gluten-free what-have-you). It’s plain white or brown bread. Milk or cream. Sausages or bacon. That’s what was so perfect about spotting the … Continue reading
