Let’s Begin!

We are super excited to start on this new project together since we have some exciting projects coming up in 2017!

Coffee Break: Lapin Pressé

Il y a quelques semaines, nous nous sommes données comme mission d’essayer au moins trois cafés, faisant tous partie du Indie Coffee Passport, situés dans le Plateau en une journée. Je n’ai jamais parlé ni marché aussi vite de ma vie que cette journée là… Qu’est-ce que tu veux que je te dise… la cafféine,…

Coffee Break: Esquina, Bar à Café

Last weekend we had a coffee hunting extravaganza. We tried not one, not two, but three coffee shops in the span of an hour and a half. And let me tell you, I’ve never walked that fast in my life! Caffeine sure does put a pep in your step! Our first stop of the day…

Coffee Break: Cardynal – Bar à Espresso

Situé sur la magnifique avenue du Mont-Royal, le Cardynal – Bar à Espresso est un cozy petit café qui a beaucoup à offrir. La sélection sur le menu affiché au mur présente tous les classiques recherchés des plus fins connaisseurs, et quelques items qui nous ont fait poser quelques questions : une planche-dégustation dans un café,…

Coffee Review: Cherry Bomb Coffee

This first coffee review of the month is all about a coffee that we picked up our first day of holidays in Toronto! It fueled every day of our trip, and we’re on our last beans right now. So if you’re in Toronto and feel like making your way to Roncesvalles, stop by Cherry Bomb…

Out & About in Toronto: Harbour Front + Distillery District

Exploring the Distillery District and Harbour Front is one of my favorite things to do in Toronto, mostly because there is so much to see, and it changes every time I go. We attempted to save this exploring day for a nice and sunny one, but we weren’t so lucky; it was sunny, but mixed…

Out & About in Toronto: Kensington Market

When you visit downtown Toronto, you’re guaranteed to be told to check out Kensington Market. It is one of the most interesting and diverse areas of the city, and you’d be surprised at just how much can be crammed into a tiny space. I didn’t know this, but in 2006, Kensington Market was declared a…

Out and About in Toronto: Exploring Queen St. West

Day 3 of our exploring of Toronto consisted of walking down Queen St. West (in the cold and rain) to explore cute little stores that we had seen on our way to my aunt’s place. If you’ve ever been downtown Toronto on Queen St., the most popular parts are usually between Yonge and Spadina, where…

Coffee Review: Cut Coffee Roasters

As promised, here is the third coffee review of the month: Espresso Butter Knife by Cut Coffee Roasters.

We got this a bag the first week of July and have been testing it out for you, and there is a reason why it has taken us so long to write about it.

Out and About in Toronto: Exploring Roncesvalles

The Patates are on holidays! Yes sir! We decided to come to Toronto for our holidays, since the last time we came was way too short and way too cold. We felt like there was so much more to do and see; so we decided to come back for an entire week and explore the…

The War on Labels

Two clashing point of views Some want more, some want them gone We’ve officially entered the next round The fight of our generation I’m no poet But I need words to write I need words to talk I need them to express myself We’ve categorized, sub-categorized Everything belongs to a group More words to describe…

Coffee Break: Shaughnessy Café

If you’ve ever gotten off at Atwater station and walked down Ste Catherine towards downtown, you’ll have noticed that the streets are busy, and so are the shops. Being pretty much in the middle of all the university and college campuses, it can be pretty difficult finding a quiet spot to sit and get some…

Coffee Break in Gatineau: Café Mulligan

We’re taking you on a little roadtrip this week, taking you to Aylmer, Gatineau, for a quick little coffee break! For those that aren’t familiar with the area, it is the major anglophone neighborhood of the Gatineau region, located along the Ottawa/Ouatouais river. It’s quite picturesque, especially in the older part near the marina. Over…
