Brunch Time @ Yaya's - Leslieville

Time for brunch! I rarely brunch, but today was the day. Randomly ended up at Yaya's on a Sunday afternoon. It boasts using farm fresh and local ingredients. Sounds good! A quaint place with a raised seating area by the window. What made me love this place was the TV with a fireplace on the screen. A little corny, but still kinda awesome.
I cannot say no to Eggs Benedict($14) or coffee($2), so the choice was easy. The coffee was a little strong, but good. Organic and fair trade, of course! Brunch arrived looking fabulous. After my plate's quick photo session, I dug in, but did not anticipate this little surprise; the yolk was bright ORANGE. Confused, I tasted it and it tasted like egg yolk, but certainly looked like it had come from a psychedelic chicken. 
We asked about the yolk and they don't know why it's orange. She said the owner picks up the eggs fresh every day directly from the farm. They assume because the chickens are grain fed all organic feed, that it affects…

Wine & Dine @ Cibo King West

After living in my new place for well over a year, my neighbour and I finally got a chance to hang out! After tossing a few ideas back and forth, we decided on Cibo's King West location. The d├ęcor is fabulous; wood walls with slots for backlit wine bottles. Classy! The seating was comfortable and nicely spaced out.  Noise level gets a bit high in there, but it wasn't too bad.
Highly recommended to make reservations!!!
We had 2 servers which was different, but a great way to do it. There was always someone around if you needed something and they were both fabulous. They were a great help in choosing wine as well!
