This marks my first post since the city received a generous amount of snow, so excuse the shortage of my ootd pics! In the meantime, I've started to look for some indoor events to keep me and this blog busy. Aside from the numerous holiday markets happening, I also discovered Sing Out, Louise - an intimate event gathering showtune fans all over the city. Once a month, this group provides a mic, an accompanist and a theme for avid musical theatre artists. Fools and Horses, located aptly along Broadway Ave, hosts the event in their space while serving your favourite drinks from beer, wine, coffee & tea. Oh and did I mention that this was free? So whether you want to participate as a performer or just as a member of the audience, Sing Out Louise is a wonderful local event to attend. Follow their instagram for the latest event announcements!
I've mentioned Creme De L'Essence before but never had the chance to do a full post on this restaurant so I decided to go back and try more of their dishes. Tucked somewhere in the north of city, Creme De L'Essence specializes in classic brunch eats with a French fusion twist. Some of their best sellers include their version of Chicken & Waffles and Pork Belly Hash. They also serve espresso drinks and home made ice cream if you're craving for something sweet. I recommend getting either a tub of their matcha green tea or vietnamese coffee ice cream. Creme De L'Essence may not be situated centrally in the city, but their good food makes it definitely worth the drive!
While walking around Corydon, I noticed a new cafe called Il Molino located in one of the building basements and I made a mental note to check it out when I had free time. Relatively new in the neighbourhood, Il Molino's menu features a selection of open faced sandwiches & belgian waffles that can be enjoyed for breakfast & lunch. If you're interested to pair those with drinks, they also serve European beers and wines. Il Molino is another great example of how this city continues to amaze me in terms of food diversity.
