It was a Saturday in March and the plan was to head out to best new cafe of 2016. Hale Coffee was a ways away at Dupont and Lansdowne so the plan was to transit out there, because you know, March in Toronto is still pretty damn cold. We were a bit delayed in heading out the door for our breakfast because Brent proposed. It caught me so off guard and was so out of nowhere that I was floored and in shock. And then overjoyed.
Needless to say this fooding outing is more prevalent in my memory. We sat at the bar and sipped our espresso-based drinks. I had no idea what the difference was between a flat white and a cortado. I took a sip of each and let Brent have the more creamy and less-coffeey one of the two. The almond croissant was delicious and any place that serves Red Bench* cookies has a place in my heart. Especially when it is a cookies and creme cookie.
*I don’t know when but Red Bench has since closed down, leaving me broken-hearted and cookieless lest I venture afar
