One of my favourite restaurants in London Ontario has to be The River Room. Located in Museum London, it allows me to satisfy my appetite for art and for exquisite dining whenever I feel the need to be culturally inspired. The fresh and simple menu, the crisp black and white photographs along the walls, and the tailored style of the restaurant transport me to New York City. But the panoramic views are all about London. The Old Court House and the endlessly flowing fountain at the Forks of the Thames River are both iconic of this city. My only disappointment is that the restaurant is open for lunch and brunch exclusively. I would love to linger over a romantic dinner and a nice glass of wine, watching the sun set over the river. Nevertheless, the food and the atmosphere will have me coming back. Until next time!
This beautiful garden is hidden in plain sight in the heart of London. If you are looking for a great place to read a book, enjoy a coffee or seek an escape from a hectic day, all you need to do is visit the Central Library…ask one of the friendly staff and they will be happy to point you in the right direction.
This little chocolate gem is a watermelon truffle from the charming and cozy Fire Roasted Cafe in London Ontario. Not a combination of flavours that I would normally gravitate to, but I was feeling a bit adventurous. Verdict – delicious! A smooth dark chocolate centre held surprising bursts of sour watermelon flavour. I think it woke me up more than the cappuccino I ordered alongside. It’s my new favourite way to start a morning.
