Out & About: Tsukuyomi

C’est la mi-décembre. Tu sors de la job, il est 19h. Tu meurs de faim. Température typique de décembre à Montréal, il fait froid et humide. Le vent entre dans ton manteau de laine trop fin et tes chevilles, victime de la mode des jeans Frank and Oak trop court et des Adidas qui accommode…

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…

Coffee Break : Humble Lion

Established in 2012, the Humble Lion is one of the McGill’s student body’s officially unofficial hangout near campus. Currently hidden under scaffolding, you might have a hard time finding it, but once you do, you’ll probably never want to leave. Walking in, you have a couple of tables and seating option by the front window…

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 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 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…

Coffee Break: Café Saint-Henri (Verdun)

L’idée de notre blogue est née après un après-midi passé dans un café à Verdun, à quelques pas de chez nous. En fait, depuis que nous avons déménagé de Limoilou à Verdun, le café Saint-Henri est un must quasi hebdomadaire pour Marie et moi. Puisqu’il est situé à la sortie du métro de l’Église, se…

Out and About : Mayfair Cocktail Bar

Jeudi dernier, on a été invitées à venir découvrir la nouvelle carte de cocktails du Mayfair Cocktail Bar, qui pour moi a été une découverte complète. J’ai pu en effet découvrir le côté givré de ce salon à thé alcoolisé qui se transforme en cocktail bar posh. Le style anglais est mis en valeur autant…
