• 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?

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…
