Fresh on Front!

“Fresh feels good. The original source of crave-able vegan food.” That’s the moto of the vegan restaurant on Front St. Downtown Toronto, a few minutes walk from Union Station.

I hang out with a bunch of foodies, so of course we had to try out this beautiful place (also because I saw a gorgeous picture of the interior on Instagram and I wanted to check it out!).

We ordered BBQ burger, Chipotle bacon burger, Quinoa onion rings, Buddha bowl, & the goddess bowl. The food was delicious and healthy!! The quinoa onion rings were my favorite!

If you are interested in trying some vegan food, give this restaurant a try!!

You are my Sunshine!

My sister and I attended one our sweetest friend’s baby shower. It was held in Brampton (all these gems of places in Brampton that I never knew about!!) at the Chinguacousy Park Ski Chalet. Click here for rental/booking application.

They had the cutest little snacks and decor & fun games!

Brunch All Day, Every Day!

I love brunch!! If you invite me for brunch, any time of the day, I will be there!! But it has to be good food, and a good place!! The other day I was sprinting to my meeting in Downtown Toronto and passed by this unique restaurant. It was PACKED inside with a line-up outside. So, obviously, it has to be good!!

As I quickly walked by it (because I had a meeting, otherwise, I would’ve walked right into it!!), I noticed the beautiful vintage frames, colorful tiles, and happy groups of people! I knew I had to try this place! A few days later, I did!!

The food, delectable! The place, beautiful! The atmosphere, fun! The vibe, vintage!! Should you check it out?! DEFINITELY YES!!

Oh, the restaurant’s name is Cafe Landwer!! You can check out their menu here! Leave me a comment or send me a message if you like it!!

Ladurée!!

It was love at first bite with macarons!! Although, I also love the Italian Macaroons made with coconut, I’ve been wanting to try French Macarons at the famous French luxury bakery and sweets maker house Ladurée at Yorkdale Shopping Centre for quite a while!

Ladurée was founded in Paris in 1862. The recipe of macarons includes two sweet meringue-based biscuits made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder and food coloring joined with ganache or jam filling in the middle. (okay, already drooling!)

Ladurée at Yorkdale Shopping Centre also offers an exquisite Parisian high tea experience in it’s tea room with pink walls, gold accents and crystal chandeliers!! This place is perfect for a birthday high tea, a bridal shower, baby shower, mother’s day or even a tea date with your love!!

My review of the Ladurée:

  • Service: 5 Stars – I was greeted by a sweet hostess and she was kind enough to let me choose my own table.
  • Tea Selection: 5 Stars – The menu included various types of teas, herbal and non-herbal. I actually had a difficult time selecting a tea and decided on Jasmine tea. “This tea takes you on a journey to the Far East, delivering a smooth and mysterious flavour. Our jasmine tea is a blend of Chinese green tea and freshly picked jasmine petals from the Yin Hao Garden – recognized for its incredible, exceptional quality.” ~ Menu
  • Macaron Selection: 5 Stars – Again, I had a tough time selecting the flavors because honestly, I wanted to try a whole dozen of them. I decided on two flavors that I hadn’t tried before; pistachio & salted caramel. Both were delectable!!
  • Order Placement: 5 Stars – Hostess brings your order on a beautiful silver tray and then arranges it on your table for the perfect Instagramable picture. No extra work required to re-arrange items!!
  • Restaurant: 5 Stars – This place is not only stunning from outside, but the inside is just as beautiful!!

Ladurée is offering a special Mother’s Day Brunch & Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea. Click on the links for Yorkdale location’s menu and pricing.

Let me know if you’ve tried Ladurée in Canada, Paris or anywhere else!!

We attended one of our sweetest friend’s baby shower at a beautiful venue in Downtown Brampton called Alderlea. I’ve linked similar outfits on “Shop Instagram” link on my website!! Scroll through this post to see some of the highlights from this baby shower!!

A 19th century 2 story mansion with a great room with floor-to-ceiling windows for table seating & entertainment. A lobby for buffet setup. A beautiful terrace facing Brampton’s very own Gage Park.

Some of the games played at the shower:

  • Design a toilette paper diaper: Select a model from your group to show your toilette paper diaper! (we selected our friend’s husband, he was a good sport!!)
  • Dress the baby: 4 men along with the Father-to-be competed in dressing a baby doll. The fastest and accurate won!
  • Guess the candies in the jar: closest number won!
  • Who can finish the juice in the baby bottle the fastest: 5 Couples competed where one person fed the baby bottle to the other.
