7 WEST

I walked by this place so many times but I never noticed it actually opens 24/7, 7 WEST, located in the heart of downtown Toronto, 7 Charles St. W.  A very unique cafe kind of diner, fantastic atmosphere with 2 storeys, whether if you want to relax with a cup of coffee, a nice dinner for 2, a slice of cake dessert or a late night snack, they have it all.  Not to mention they have all day breakfast as well which was what I had, it wasn’t anything fancy but was done just right 🙂  I will definitely keep this place in mind if I want something late night while in downtown 😛

TAPS ON QUEEN

This is probably one of the best places to have a couple of beers and hang out with friends.  TAPS ON QUEEN is located in downtown Niagara Falls, an area which you think it’s pretty much dead but it’s not 😛 All their beers have a unique and refreshing taste, not to mention they brew their own beer, big variety of choices, very inexpensive (about $5 a pint), they also have a complimentary beer tour and you can also try their beer tasting fir about $5 dollars, sounds pretty good eh?  Not only their beers are awesome, so is their food, you can also host private functions/parties and live bands on Tuesdays and Saturdays, sounds like a perfect place to hang out right?  Anyways, I strongly recommended this place, who wouldn’t like spending a nice afternoon on a patio with a few beers 🙂

Oh oh, they also have different combos specials everyday, also don’t forget to ask for the waitress Stephanie, she is my favorite and the best 😉

Ciao wine bar

Located in downtown Yorkville, Ciao wine bar, my favorite kind of food, Italian 🙂  If I remember correctly, it was movenpick (the ice-cream place) at the same location from years ago.  Tho the entrance doesn’t look very appealing to me but once you open the door, the excitement started to kick in, the inside is very spacious and trendy.  Quite a lot of interesting dishes choices to choose from and the prices, woah, I always thought the restaurants in that area were always over priced but ummm not this place.  Ordered my all time favorite which is pasta as always and I was impressed, well, I guess in that area, it has to be or it will not survive right?  😛

The London Arms

Unlike most restaurants inside malls, this one apparently is not a chain.  Located in the lower level of the Pen Centre St. Catherine’s Ontario, a pub like restaurant named The London Arms.  There are lots of food choices in the food court, a Kelsey’s and Boston Pizza in the parking lot of this mall, so with this much competition, a restaurant has to stand out and it does 🙂  Their menu is very simple, typical pub food but I was quite surprised the prices are not as expensive than I thought because it’s in a mall.  Food was quite good, the Italian sausage penne I ordered was soo creamy and tasty, and their fish and chips is probably the best in the area.  The best thing about this place is, they do have specials on a few kinds of beer before 6pm so if you are getting tired after a whole afternoon shopping, you can take a good break with a few beer in there and then you can go drunken shopping again, hehe

The Cheesecake Factory

If you think they serve dessert only, you are very wrong 😛  The Cheesecake Factory, a big chain restaurant you would only find in US, and the one I went to is located inside Walden Galleria Buffalo.  The place was packed with people at all time, there is always a wait time of over 30 mins if you want a table at the dinning area, luckily, we found a table at the bar area so no need to wait 😛  For a restaurant in a mall, this is gigantic, there are entrances from the mall and the outside and this place can probably hold at least 300 people.  I was very surprised when I saw the menu because there were just soo many different varieties of food you can choose from, they also have a skinnylicious menu which delivers a smaller portion of food, and of course, they have a freaking big varieties of dessert as well.  Food was delicious as expected, that’s why the place is always packed right?  So the next time if you are headed to Buffalo shopping, you might want to check this place out because it is a place to remember.  If you just want a little dessert and don’t want to sit in, they do have a take out counter 🙂
