We were up in the Dundarave area early one morning but had some trouble finding somewhere to eat. We were originally going to try the Dundarave Fish Market but, when we walked in, they told us the restaurant side wasn’t open until 11am so we trodded back down the block to try out The Bakehouse in Dundarave again.

As luck would have it, I called for take-out on a Wednesday (apparently they’re closed on Tuesdays). Read the rest of this entry
What’s the difference between a White Spot and a Triple O’s? My best guess is that Triple O’s is the fast-food equivalent of White Spot. While you can still get the basic burgers, fries, and shakes that made White Spot famous, Triple O’s doesn’t have the full menu offering that White Spot has. Read the rest of this entry
