savouring the sweet
So this is more of a problem for the suburbs than it is for Toronto itself. Being a somewhat social couple, my wife and I like to meet friends for dinner and dessert on both weekdays and weekends. We live in Mississauga in the Port Credit/Clarkson area. What are some of the recommendations for restaurants in this area? I’d love to go to small bistro’s and cafe’s for dinner but haven’t been able to find any restaurants which are not a chain or a Firkin or a Sports Bar that are open past 9 pm.
The bigger issue that I’ve had is finding a place for dessert. Aside from Dmitri’s, which I can’t stand due to poor service on a consistent basis and the constant annoyance of terrible music and high school kids, I don’t know of any other decent dessert places. Even the Just Desserts that used to be by Square One has shut down.
I used to frequent the Parlour Cafe down on Lakeshore quite often but that’s been changed into a small time coffee shop now and is now rarely interesting.
What are some of the places that you guys go to when you don’t want the whole chain store experience?
If you’re from another suburb, please mention the small cafe’s and shops in your area as well as I’d love to try out something new.
