These are undoubtedly exciting times for exploring coffee shops.
Lately, I’ve been enthralled with the surge of quaint neighbourhood cafés around the city.
I’ve talked about Le Marché St. George before, one of the best little cafés and my favourite weekend-morning haunt.
It’s a little farther away from me, so I don’t get to go by often.
Once, we forwent our morning walk along the Seawall and walked all the way to Marché St. George for breakfast instead – it took us about an hour and the half!
I love the rustic charm here; and that’s it’s tucked away in a quiet, warm and cosy neighbourhood.
The food here is good too, there’s excellent coffee, to go with delicious breakfast and lunch options made with locally sourced ingredients.
I especially love their buttery croissants and the eclectic mismatched tableware.
They also stock a small selection of quality provisions and treats for stocking the pantry.
Seating is limited but the atmosphere is warm and genial.
It’s very easy to fall into conversation with a stranger here; I’ve gotten some good recommendations, from awesome food photographers on Instagram to books on decluttering that could potentially change my live.
It’s a cosy spot to lose yourself in a good book, or for quiet reflection.
I’ve been feeling a little wanderlust, February does that to me but then I found these simple tips on how to love where you live, it’s helped some…
I’m happiest when I can manage to create happy moments doing ordinary things, and hanging out in sweet cafes like Marche St. George make it easy.

Have you tried Boucoup bakery in Kits? Stellar croissants, but the two really amazing things I tried were the peanut butter sandwich cookies and the rosemary chocolate cookies. The coffee’s alright, no better or worse than anywhere else.27 February, 2015 at 5:12 am
I LOVE Beaucoup! Their double baked almond croissants are sooo good! I’ll have try the rosemary chocolate cookies next time… I love rosemary in desserts. You should try their iced mochas in the summer, I like!27 February, 2015 at 10:23 am
