2016 has been an amazing year for me and I’m so grateful for what I had the privilege to experience over the last 12 months, from launching this blog to my writing aspirations. I have no resolution written down for 2017, but I have few projects I expect to get done. So my hope for 2017 is for this year to be filled with great opportunities and success for my family, my friends and myself.
Sorry for being away for so long but I was out of town for a couple days and when I returned home I didn’t really had the time to blog on anything because I had to take care of important things. Back to the topic du jour, last week I went to have tea time at one of the best tea rooms (in my humble opinion) in Montreal. I have heard of The Cardinal Tea room a couple years ago from friends and their reviews were mostly positive. So I added the place to my check list of the many food places to try in Montreal. And quite honestly it was a great experience. As a matter of fact, I put a big emphasis on the word experience.
Last Sunday, we went to Régine Café to have a girls’ brunch. Picking Régine Café was my sister’s idea because she had heard many positive reviews of the place and she wanted to try it. Quite honestly, it wasn’t a disappointing experience. In fact, it was a pleasant and savouring experience to say the least.
Last Sunday, with a group of friends, we went to a Cabane à Sucre outside Montréal. Cabanes à Sucre or Sugar Shacks in English are popular traditional establishments in Québec where maple syrup and everything sweet are celebrated. It’s basically an institution and a must-stop for anyone visiting the Belle Province between October and April.
Last week, I went out for brunch with a group of friends, and one had the brilliant idea to take us to L’Avenue Restaurant. To be honest with you, I had previously heard of the place while watching You Got To Eat Here on Food Network months ago, and I promised myself to go there and to give it a try. So I was particularly excited to finally get to eat at L’Avenue. The restaurant is basically a ‘must-stopped’ for anyone in search for a good place to have brunch.
