• Roselle Toronto – Cafe Review

    Hello Loves! I’d like to introduce you to Roselle. I am sure many of you have heard of Roselle before but for those of you that haven’t… You’re welcome. Roselle is a bakery located in the east end of Toronto at King St. and Parliament St. The space is small and minimalistic with only enough seating for about 8 people. They do have a patio but I’m not sure if it’s open now since it’s starting to get chilly here in Toronto. They offer an assortment of delectable treats that aim to make you happy. Hence the “dessert makes you happy sign”. They have seasonable offerings so make sure to check…

  • Planta Toronto – Review 

    Hello Loves! On Sunday I went to Planta for brunch with a bunch of my instagram friends. In case you don’t know what Planta is, it is a newly opened plant-based restaurant in Yorkville (Yonge and Bay). Basically, they are a vegan restaurant that focuses on creating inspiring dishes without the use of any animal products. Let’s first start off by admiring the beautiful decor. Swings, rose gold flamingos, and plants galore! Seriously, such a stunning space with pockets of natural light for you to chase in order to get some instaworthy pictures. I managed to get some empty shots of the restaurant right when it opened at 10:30am before…

  • Light Cafe in Toronto – Baldwin Village

    Hello Loves! I finally got the chance to check out Light Cafe in Baldwin Village and I’ve got some good news and some bad news. Good news, the place is super cute and some of the food is really good. Bad news, the lighting is awful and some of the food could be better. I got the mushroom truffle croissant sandwich which was amazing and I would definitely recommend it to anyone…unless you don’t like mushrooms of course. Just thinking about it is making me salivate. The croissant was nice and flaky so expect lots of crumbs. To drink, I got the iced southberry herbal tea which is beyond beautiful.…

  • The New Teriyaki Experience

    Hello Loves! A little bit of a story time today. When I used to work near Union Station in downtown Toronto, I would often go to Teriyaki Experience for lunch. It was easy, quick, and not to mention delicious. The teriyaki sauce is what really makes the dish I think. It was the perfect combination of sweet and salty. You can imagine how expensive it gets to eat out every day though. So when I stopped working near Union, I inevitably stopped eating at Teriyaki Experience as well. Chicken Teriyaki Recently, it came back onto my radar because I had been told that they were looking to rebrand and now…

  • The Dime Toronto

    The Dime Toronto – Restaurant Review

    Hello Loves! I stumbled across The Dime on Queen while walking on Queen St. W. the other day. It was just around lunch time so I was looking for something to munch on. What really drew me in were the tiles that said “Made in Canada” in front of the restaurant but alas, I could not take a picture because there was a big sign in the way. As I looked closer at this sign, I realized that everything was $4.95! What?! So upon investigation, it turns out that The Dime is a brother/sister/cousin/whatever you want to call it company to Queen St. Warehouse which we all know is a…

  • Butter Avenue Newly Launched Afternoon Tea

    Hello Loves! For those of you that don’t know yet, Butter Avenue has launched a new afternoon tea menu. I got to try it in May, the weekend before Mother’s day, but haven’t gotten around to posting until now (whoops). I’m sorry I’m so bad at blogging (haha). Anyway, you can see that we started off with some tea, there is a selection of tea you can choose from. They have some that are specifically for afternoon tea or you can choose something from their regular menu. What are the options you ask? Well, I forgot to take a picture of the menu so I guess you’ll just have to…

  • Kitten and the Bear

    Hello Loves! Today’s post is on Kitten and the Bear a.k.a the BEST place to get scones and jam in Toronto. Situated in the West end at 1574 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6R 1A6, it is quite the trek for those that live in the East but well worth it. Kitten and the Bear specializes in artisan preserves and buttermilk scones. When I say specialize, I mean totally dominate the game. Is it no wonder that there aren’t many other places that sell scones and preserves? It’s because, they would fail because Kitten and the Bear sets the bar so damn high. They are a relatively small space with a…

  • Club Monaco Market Toronto Edition

    Hello Loves! So I was invited to the grand opening of the Club Monaco Market (#CMMARKET) by @ROIrelations (thank you). If you don’t already know, the Club Monaco Market is back at their Bloor Street location. The market has some wonderful treats of flowers by Sweet Woodruff, baked goodies from the Bake Shoppe, coffee from Sam James, juice from Evolution Food Co., sandwiches and salads from Delica Kitchen, and most importantly, POPTAILS (OMG) from the Pop Stand! I love that they brought back the market. It’s always so nice to just sit and people watch while munching on some yummy treats. The weather in Toronto just needs to hurry up and…

  • 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:…
