Axia Restaurant & Bar

Location: A-5045 Plantation Pl., Mississauga If it weren’t for the “Restaurant & Bar” in the name…you’d think Axia were a club.  You did, didn’t you? Well, it’s not.  I don’t know why they named it that, ’cause the inside of it looks like some sort of vacation package hotel….cane chairs upholstered in tropical fabric, hanging … Continue reading

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.

Location: 147 Spadina Avenue, Toronto http://www.freshrestaurants.ca As is the case with a lot of food-related businesses these days, the word “fresh” embodies all that is “organic” and “new” in our age of health-consciousness.  If it contains the word FRESH chances are people will gravitate towards it.

TRAVEL: London, ON: Raja

Location: 428 Clarence Street, London http://www.rajafinedining.ca Had a family anniversary celebration here.  The space is up-scale and elegant and nicely done up for large groups, such as us. The service on the other hand, could use some tweaking.  Although it wasn’t busy, our server took a while to come over.  Then he failed to correctly … Continue reading
