    Now I know exactly what to order if should I break up – love the salt idea!! 😀


  2. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    well aren’t you just the cutest thing 🙂

  3. Tammy

    ohh, those look so good Hannah. Have never been to Toronto but quite happy that I will have a long list of desserts to try when I do.

  4. Sarah

    I like YOUR style, young lady! And that pint of ice-cream looks delicious 🙂

  5. Helen (Grab Your Fork)

    Can’t think of a better idea than dessert for mains. But what about dessert for afters?

  6. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    I demand you take me there when I crash your place one day! But in the summer.

    Your eating Ice Cream in a sleeveless top (not to mention the tennis match on tv) leads me to believe that this is not a recent review?

  8. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef

    What a brilliant idea! I could do that too but I’d need one of those ‘WIDE LOAD’ signs for the back of my car. 🙂

  9. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Ah Hannah, I wish you could have joined my family dinners with my UK grandparents as a child. My grandfather often went for the “skip main to order dessert” approach, and because he did it, my parents didn’t really have grounds to enforce the conventional main-before-dessert approach with us children. Joyous.

    Looking forward to your reviews 🙂

  10. Julia @ Chic To Do

    That apple crisp looks divine.

    And ordering a tub of ice cream for lunch in a restaurant? Yes, please!

  11. Hotly Spiced

    I remember Terri Irwin saying Steve used to say, ‘Life’s short, why not eat dessert first!’ So very true. Love the sound of your very generous serve of ice cream and all that came with it xx

    Ah, a Toronto dessert tour is such a fabulous idea! I’ve heard rave reviews of the cakes at 7West Cafe at Yonge & Bloor (alas, they’re not vegan). It’s the perfect spot for martinis and dessert. I believe they have about 10 different cakes and pies on the menu, and they are showcased so beautifully in cake domes along the bar.

    Also, Through Being Cool Baking Co. at Bloor and Lansdowne! 🙂

    You are quite simply the best person ever.

    I don’t know if it is funnier that you go for ice cream in the middle of winter or need a salt shaker to eat dessert. I must confess I would love to sample the dessert at a melb cafe but never have room after eating lunch so I sort of understand that sometimes dessert must come first but I do love my savoury too. That ice cream sounds amazing – can you please send me some when it gets horribly hot again next week

  15. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe so will we see you carrying your own salt shaker next? Nothing wrong with that! 😀

    There are so many vegan bakeries to try in case you’d like a tour guide – my services are available (and super cheap).

    Also…I’ve heard good things about this spot:


  17. Emma

    Is this the only spin-off that has the potential to be more successful than its predecessor? I THINK SO!

    Wait, are there any spin-offs out there that were more successful? Angel could never quite capture the magic of Buffy, although it was excellent television. I liked Frasier better than Cheers, but I wouldn’t say I enjoyed it. And then there’s Baywatch Nights…..

    Xena! Xena was better than Hercules. There’s one.

  18. Joanne

    Dessert as an EVENT? I approve wholeheartedly!

  19. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    I already know I like this place because they give out pints of ice-cream what more could a restaurant do to win my heart 🙂

  20. janet @ the taste space

    You are too cute. You will be my guide to fabulous desserts when I come back! 🙂

  21. janet @ the taste space

    Oh… and I do have a fabulous recommendation. The vegan donuts from Through Be Cool. I know you aren’t vegan but even Rob said they were some of the best donuts he has had.. 🙂

  22. Cindy

    I welcome this new event whole-heartedly!

    I love this idea. I also love the thought of ordering a whole pint of ice cream for myself, but yes, can see how it might be a little overwhelming. Also, I love that you used the word nubbins. I love that word. Nubbins nubbins nubbins.
