What I Ate

  • I had been craving Rosewood Foods’ patty melt, so finally hit them up last week. If you haven’t tried it yourself – you won’t regret it.

  • I met up with a colleague for lunch at Hallway Café last week, with Ellie in tow. It’s one of my favourite places for a meal Downtown with a baby, with ample stroller room, lots of menu options that can be consumed with one hand, and on my visits, no large crowds. Food-wise, I also appreciate that you can order a half pizza plus a side, which always means fries for me.

  • While enjoying Martin Kerr’s performance at the Downtown Farmers’ Market on Sunday, we tried Waffloos for the first time. The sweetness of the liege waffle worked surprisingly well with the savoury ham and cheese flavour, but part of me was nostalgic for the simplicity  of Eva Sweet’s version (remember them)?
