Going out for breakfast is one of my favorite things.
I love a hearty Western breakfast (lots of bacon, please!), and sometimes I pine after a dainty goat cheese souffle/eggs benedict smoked salmon experience.
But then there are times (several times, actually) where all I want is a good butter croissant.
Out of my big city Toronto stomping grounds, here in little Waterloo, lies a lovely looking French bakery: Sablétine Fine Pastries. Will my finicky carbohydrate demands be met?
In my humble opinion, a croissant should make deliciously crackly, crunching sounds as I bite through its butter flaked outside, making way for a soft, light and faintly sweet pillowy inside.
I am happy as a clam right now.
After being so impressed by their croissant, Mario and I loaded up on eclairs, macarons, chocolate cakes and raspberry pistachio cheesecake. I really like spending time with people who get as excited about food as I do.
I'm still keen to go back to Toronto and try the Celestin bakery for their famous baguettes. Things to do, things to do.
