As you can see it was snowing that day, yet I still stood outside to take this pic for you guys, LOVE ME.

From the outside Duo looks quite plain, I wish they had some decorations or design to give the place a bit more of a Pâtisserie feel. However, since they’re located in a plaza, I guess they couldn’t do something different with the exterior.

I’m really sorry if I got any of you guys in this shot! This place was packed during my stay (which is a good thing!) so it was extremely hard to take a picture. This place is very clean and modern looking. Unfortunately seating was a bit tight, I wish they would take a table out to give the place a bit more space, but then the place is quite small in the first place. At most it can seat around 15 customers.

Price Range: $$
Overall: 3.5/5

Hi everyone! Sorry for the hiatus. During the past 2 months I tried several new restaurants and I took a lot of pictures for blogging. However I keep forgetting to take pictures of the interior or menu of the restaurant (fail lol), hence I couldn’t do a proper blog post. I promise I will blog more often from now on and have different variety of restaurants, not just dessert places..

This time I visited Delysees – a modern and authentic French Bakery located on King Street West. First of all, I have to mention this place is beautiful! It’s a lovely space with clean lines and glossy whites everywhere. The inside is spacious and I believe the glass wall at the back is the entrance to their kitchen? The glass counters showcases the sandwiches and salad, ranged from $5-10. Unfortunately by the time I visited it was almost dinner so I didn’t want to try any, I will try some next time!

For my birthday, I decided to venture to Bang Bang Ice Cream as my Instagram new feeds have been dominated by pictures from this place, especially the Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich! Beware, the shop is small and the place is easily missed as there was only a little sign by the window. The decor is minimal and they had the ice cream selections of the day on the bucket, which I thought was a cute idea.

The cookies selection looks great! Unfortunately the Macaron was sold out for the day, I ended up ordering the London Fog Ice Cream Puff Sandwich instead.
