Like I mentioned earlier, we really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Monge. Even Krista at Passport Delicious agrees. Breakfast at the hotel was simple, but more than adequate. I actually ate a bit more than usual as I was... Continue reading

Guess I really don't get around that much anymore. I didn't see this shop until I dropped by Royal Mandarin to pick up some salt-and-pepper chicken wings for a pot luck. It was close enough to lunch time like 10:15... Continue reading

We finished up dinner at Le Lapin Saute and took another nice stroll around the Lower Town before heading back to our hotel room. Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Victoires looked quite stunning at night. Back at the room, while the Missus drew Herself... Continue reading

I'd been wanting to revisit La Miche for a while, it's a favorite of ours during hot spells. For some reason, I'd had bad timing and gone when the place was closed. Finally, with a normal lunch hour at hand,... Continue reading
