sunday breakfast.

it's easy to get into a breakfast rut once you find a fantastic little breakfast nook
for me, that rut is called fresh café -
a bright sunny little café with amazing fruit smoothies
& heavenly chocolate chip banana bread french toast...
{oh you read that correctly.
i had never even dreamed of such a thing until i tried it at fresh}

however, it's always good to try new things & de-rut oneself.
so yesterday, my friends & i decided to breakfast at
the frenchway café

it's a tiny little café
{about fourteen spots max}
run by a lovely french couple
{le monsieur is parisian while la madame is from winnipeg!}.

kd & i decided to split strawberry & chocolate crêpes & the eggs benedict.
the eggs benedict, while a little skimpy on the hollandaise sauce, was excellent.
but the crêpes...
oh the crêpes!
i could NOT stop gushing about them
- to my friends, to the waitress, to myself -
it was difficult to control myself.
maple syrup, real melted chocolate, fresh strawberries, paper thin crêpes...
complete bliss.
next time i go to the frenchway café
{which will hopefully be BIENTÔT!}
i will definitely not be sharing my crêpes.
it was pure torture having to pass over the plate to kd...
{but i did since i am a good friend}

after our delcious breakfast, we took a lovely autumn stroll at assiniboine park
it was by far one of the nicest mornings i've had in a long while...


ps. kari just got a fancy new canon rebel
and her park pictures definitely put my little snaps to shame.
i will post them as soon as i get my hands on them...
