A couple weekends ago I finally visited the new cafe in Toronto that everyone's been talking about, Colette Grand Cafe
. We missed brunch that day as it isn't served on a Saturday afternoon, but I did have the chance to try some of the dishes as well as sample so future potential desserts. And did this cafe live up to the hype that everyone's been talking about? My verdict is yes, and that I'll be going back again soon!
I've eaten out way too much these past few weeks. But it's safe to say that I've been crossing off bucket list locations as opposed to randomly stopping into locations. I took a stroll down Ossington with a goal to get ahold of the famed macaron ice cream sandwhichs at Bang Bang Ice Cream and Bakery
, but on the day I showed up, they had none left.
I settle for a half ice cream sandwhich comprised of a ginger cookie (watch out it's spicy - but good!) and the dolce de leche mixed with london fog ice cream wedged in between the two cookie slices. Oh boy was this ice cream sandwhich the definition of heaven! Albeit it was a little bit too sweet, I'm already planning a trip back to get ahold of the macaron ice cream sandwhich! That's my goal for this month before it gets too cold to eat ice cream anything!
Amidst enjoying my ice cream sandwhich I stepped into Crywolf
and found these ridiculously cute concrete planters made by Concrete Barn TO
. I need to get ahold of one of these in silver eventually for my new place!
I've also decided to reshape my nails for the winter and try out the "claw" look again. I no longer work in a chlorinated environment where manual labour is an everyday requirement so my nails can finally survive a decent manicure for once! But first, coffee - right?
