Although I’ve been inside Eldon House (London Ontario’s oldest residence) a number of times, I had never seen the gardens from this perspective. Playing with my newbie photographer skills, I caught this point of view and just knew it was a great photo. I’m not sure if I just got lucky or my technique is improving!!!
Everyone says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I couldn’t agree more. I will wake up an hour early just to start the day off with a hot meal. I must admit that this does take a toll on my sleep (and who couldn’t use a little more shut eye!). Finding a place in my London neighbourhood that takes breakfast as seriously as I do, and is a super cute spot to meet with friends is amazing.
Stepping through the door of The Bag Lady I felt like Alice walking through the looking glass. The pastel technicolor and over-the-top retro design can be bit overwhelming, but the vibe is really easy going. The food feels homemade and will make you a breakfast addict, especially the mixed potato hash. Whether you decide to sit inside or outside, a visit to this delicious wonderland is a must.
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!
