Given my current lack of friends here in
Now firstly let me explain that coffee is not great in
Yesterday at the bread bar I thought, this might be just the place. So I sat down and ordered a Latte. I almost said "please don't heat the milk up too much and burn it" but I refrained, for fear of sounding like one of those horribly annoying customers. So I waited...
I was given advice from a friend who also lives in Canada to stick to the drip brewed coffee as this is the one Canadians know how to do, oh and have cream with it.
I have tried this type of coffee and it is ok, but nothing to rave home about. It is definitely not "one of the best things in Canada", and I don't see myself ordering it the next time I go out to eat, or suggesting to a friend to meet me for a coffee. However, there is one positive to this type of coffee, it is significantly cheaper than the Latte. For example, at the famous Canadian establishment 'Tim Hortons' (Blog to come about this place) a coffee costs approximately $1.40 (CAD). So, I can save a lot of money and in these times of limited employment this is something I need to consider. Still, I might forgo the coffee and save a whole $2.95.
Now to lunch. As I had a signifcant amount of snacks throughout the day (it doesn't help not having much to do sitting around the house all day) I was not that hungry. But when I got to the Bread Bar I thought, I have to try something off the menu because I have been told by people I have met, that the lunch is really nice. I ordered "Wild warm mushrooms, thyme & fontina", I was debating between that and two other things, so the waitress recommended the mushrooms. I like recommendations a lot, even when your taste buds may be very different to the person making the recommendation, still, I usually go with the recommendation.
Overall the food was great, and I am looking forward to my next visit to The Bread Bar to try something else off the menu, but this time no coffee, perhaps a tea instead.
