• My Belmonte Raw Juice Cleanse Experience

    Day 1 I went to pick up my juices from Belmonte Raw‘s Leslieville location before work. I completely underestimated how heavy 2 days worth of juice would be. I’m glad that Belmonte suggested I pick up my third cleanse on a separate day ensuring both freshness and my arms to suffer a little less. I decided to do 2 days of “The Intro” and 1 day of “The Deep“. Here’s how it went. I’m glad that “The Intro” came with a raw meal. It was a nice way to ease into a juice cleanse. All of the bottles come numbered so you know exactly which one to take next. 01:…

  • Bar Ape Pop Up Event (YUM!)

    I was invited to Bar Ape’s Pop Up Event hosted at The Sovereign and got to sample some of their soft serve concoctions. I was first introduced to Bar Ape in the summertime when I stumbled upon their cute ape (pronounced ah-pay) near Trinity Bellwoods with my friend Alexa. They usually serve gelato bars but at the event, their focus was on soft serve gelato. I got to sample their pear sorbet, pumpkin seed gelato, and a pistachio gelato on a gluten-free cookie. All of the flavours were amazing but I must say the pumpkin seed gelato was my favourite. Also, the gluten-free cookie was amazing and I hope they…

  • Marvel Coffee Co. (Carlaw Location)

    I was on the Danforth the other day and decided to stop into Marvel Coffee. I had been to their Donlands location a while back and I wanted to see their new location. It is beautifully decorated with ample seating (though outlets are scarce). It has the makings of a perfect Instagram worthy cafe (i.e. marble counters and tons of natural light). I ordered a vanilla latte and hoped that it would come with nice latte art. (It did not). The vanilla latte was nice but could have been better if it had less foam. Also, if you’re an avid coffee drinker and actually want to taste coffee in your…

  • Butter Avenue Fall Tasting

    My favourite Toronto macaron place (Butter Avenue) invited me to their fall tasting to test out some delicious treats. First up was the Pumpkin Spice hot cocoa with Pumpkin Spice macarons. Perfect for the chilly days we’re starting to get here in Toronto. They are also in the works of expanding into savory items and I’m all for it. I’m a huge fan of the Maple bacon, gruyère & tomato bouffée fromage (pictured right). It is almost like a quiche with the cheese and filling but not quite as heavy or dense. “Jardin Perdu” (Cinnamon Chantilly, caramelized apple & pear, mini chocolate apple, almond crumble) Thank you Butter Avenue for…
