Ice ‘N Cake

Ice ‘N Cake gelato & patisserie (located inside at Shops @ Don Mills) is an European inspired dessert place serving gelato, ice cream, crepes and waffles!  Their decor and patio is very colourful and cute. The cake I ordered was very well presented  but a little on the expensive side…. I’m really picky about cheesecake and I definitely didn’t like the…

Hinote Sushi

When it comes to sushi restaurants in the Mississauga area, there are not that many decent places  to choose from. Over the years I’ve been disappointed countless times with the sushi being served in the area, whether it be all-you-can eat or just off their regular menu… Thankfully, a friend of mine had introduced me to Hinote Sushi. And ever since…

Jump

Here’s a quick post of Jump (O&B’s Restaurant) when I visited them during Summerlicious (@LiciousTO) for dinner. I had a mediocre experience here and don’t get me wrong, the food was pretty good but I didn’t find our particular server interested in serving us. Urgh! Throughout the course of dinner, our server wasn’t friendly at all, he had a serious…

The atmosphere of Inakaya is very warm, cozy and inviting. Very small, so it may be best to make reservations. The staff here were really friendly and helpful and…

Gilead Cafe & Bistro

So after my early dinner at Zee Grill Seafood Restaurant & Oyster Bar, (see post here) we ended up venturing around downtown Toronto for a while until we both started to madly crave for desserts and  a random but major craving for poutine (lol) I instantly thought of Jamie Kennedy’s Gilead Cafe & Bistro, plus all the reviews and pictures of the…
