Out & About: Bref, “C’est du papier!”

Dernièrement, je suis allée me promener dans le Mile End pour visiter ma boutique préférée, Bref Mtl, pour son vernissage de la nouvelle thématique “papier”. Comme on approche tranquillement du temps des fêtes – just saying, mais il reste 84 jours avant Noël – je commence à faire mes listes d’inspiration pour mes cadeaux tout en…

Coffee Break: Espresso Bison

Walking out of the house this morning, I was hoping for a break in the heat, unfortunately, the heat is here to stay… by the time this article publishes, hopefully it cool down enough for me to be able to fall asleep without having five ice packs in bed with me… Yeah, Marie didn’t appreciate…

Out & About: Gin Dandy chez Domaine LaFrance

Pssssst! L’été n’est pas fini! On a eu peur la semaine dernière, mais wow, cette semaine, on est gâté! Et qui dit soleil, dit terrasse… et qui dit terrasse dit gin & tonic? Sangria? Margarita? J’pense que tu comprends ce que j’essaie de dire! Pour célébrer ce beau temps, on a été invitées à aller…

Coffee Break : Le Club – Espresso Bar

Dans les dernières années, on a pu voir une augmentation considérable de gens à vélo en ville; je parle de mon expérience personnelle bien sûr, mais ici à Montréal, il y a une grande communauté de cyclistes urbains qui utilisent leurs vélo comme moyen de transport. Malgré tous les problèmes que la ville peut avoir…

Coffee Review: Kona Coffee

Previously, we wrote an article about the Aloha Espresso Bar and we mentioned that we would be reviewing 100% pure Kona coffee. Well, here we are! As of what I know, the Aloha Espresso Bar seems to be one of the only places in Montreal where you can find pure 100% Kona coffee. Now, I…

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…

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…

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…
