Montanas Cookhouse – Saint Vital Centre

I found myself up at Saint Vital Centre the other day, and couldn’t decide where to eat. There are a lot of choice in the area, but none struck my fancy. In the end I went with Montanas Cookhouse, because it was closest to where I crossed the street.By nature I’m not a fan of chains. I prefer local, but once in a while I’ll give a chain a try. Montana’s is one of these places that I’m sure I…Continue readingMontanas Cookhouse – Saint Vital Centre

Graham Avenue Chili Hits Spot

For years Twist Cafe on Graham Avenue was my favourite haunt. So much so, that Soups,Sandwiches & More was totally neglected. Or almost so. They did cater a couple of events I attended, but I never got a good idea of what they served. As of last year, Fools and Horses is my new favourite place. So, I don’t go down Graham Avenue as much as I used to. However, the other day I was in the area, and thought…Continue readingGraham Avenue Chili Hits Spot

I’m also happy to…Continue readingChicken Fingers Still Star – Mitzi’s

It contains an interesting mix of tables for small groups along with a…Continue readingERA Bistro – Human Rights Museum

Cafe Lemon Tree – St. Mary’s Road

I happened upon Cafe Lemon Tree more by chance than design. Visiting a parishioner in the area I took a look around the strip mall as I waited for a bus. Cafe Lemon Tree looked intriguing so I made a note to visit the next time I was out that way.One of the first things you notice when you enter is the large collection of tea pots. They are stacked on wood shelves in behind and around the counter. It…Continue readingCafe Lemon Tree – St. Mary’s Road

Johnny Gs – East Exchange

I didn’t get to much of the Fringe Festival this year, but I was there enough to look for new places to eat. One of the places I chose was Johnny Gs (apostrophe removed for SEO reasons). I had visited there many years ago. However it was so long ago, I don’t really remember anything about it. I do seem to recall the portions being large. There are two entrances to Johnny Gs. One will take to Wee Johnny’s pub…Continue readingJohnny Gs – East Exchange
