Silo 13 : Toronto’s First Breakfast Cereal Café

Calling all early birds, 

If you’re a morning person, and enjoy kicking back to bowl of childhood bliss, then Silo 13 is your next destination! This cereal café is located in North York, Toronto. Just 4 weeks old, this hotspot is fairly new and the first of its kind in the GTA. No worries though if you’re not a morning person, their hours are from 7:30am-11pm Mon-Fri and 10am-11pm on Saturdays. These guys not only specialize in local cereals but also cereals imported from worldwide. On my visit, there was a variety of brands imported all the way from France! The staff is also incredibly hospitable, taking the time to explain how the place works and provided excellent reccomendations, a warm welcome for every person that walks in. Not to mention the cutest rustic atmosphere of the café, making it the perfect cozy spot to dine in for breakfast.

Now, for the main attraction of course, the menu! Silo 13 specializes in breakfast items, meaning its not only limited to cereal but also over night oats, parfaits, & coconut infusions! If you plan on going with the cereal, they have a huge selection from Captain Crunch Blueberry flavor to French Toast, the biggest remeniscience with some flavors I haven’t come across since childhood. Each cereal bowl is a flat fee of $10 and comes with milk, plus a variety of toppings from fresh fruits to chocolates & sweets, satisfying any range of sweet tooth. 

Overall, this breakfast spot is definately worth checking out for any casual breakfast date to a quick grab on the go! This cereal café eatery is approved by yours truley – S.

    Sweet Jesus Dessert Café

    If you’re a person who’s a fan of keeping it simple with a twist, then sweet jesus dessert café is definately a local eat you must try. I had the chance to attend the downtown toronto location which I will be doing this review based on.

    Aesthetics wise, it’s a fairly tiny shop, which gives the café a cozy feel. However, this does take away from the prospect of eating inside the café, as there was limited seating. We also cannot forget the infamous blue walls cannot be mistaken in every social media pic possible. The way I saw it, the simple color palette with a kick of blue coincides well with the simplicity of the menu with their kick of toppings!

    Food wise, their menu items range from soft serve to espresso, giving customers a variety in satisfying that inner sweet tooth. Staff was a little short on my visit, considering the time of month was just before the city’s summertime icecream rush, but that also meant a short waiting time and customer service was no less according to that.

    On my visit, I decided to opt for a small (which is a lot more than the cup seems so be weary when choosing between a small or their larger size soft serve) birthday cake icecream. This flavor was a vanilla softserve topped with creamcheese icing and cake bits. The topping had a flavor more similar to cookie dough than cake, however the overall flavor was well combined with the sweetness of the vanilla softserve. Another sweet option on the menu was the cookies and cream flavour. This flavor was similarly served with vanilla softserve topped with cookie bits. Similar to the birthday cake flavour, the cookie toppings enhanced the sweetness of the vanilla softserve so each bite with the two combined made the overall success of the dessert.

    Overall, this spot is definately worth checking out, especially on those hot summer days that just call for a little dose of sweet icecream. This dessert cafe is approved by yours truley – S.

    Nadege Patisserie & the Medallion Macaron

    If you haven’t had a chance to visit france, you’re missing out. Especially when it comes to the infamous macarons. These sweet, airy, biscuit-like desserts truley do give you a feeling of royalty just into one bite.

    No worries if you haven’t got a ticket to france however, a trip to Nadege Patisserie gives the same quality as the original french style macaron. Earlier this month, I had a chance to stop by Nadege Patisserie in Downtown Toronto. Their wide selection of flavours ranged from raspberry to lime. Accompanied by one of their decadent hot cocoa’s , its a real treat for any sweet tooth.
