Kettleman's Bagel - Ottawa

Take out breakfast from Kettleman's Bagel:
Kettleman's Special
Smoked Salmon, Deli cream cheese, tomato, red onions and olives. 
I usually hate cream cheese - the texture and the taste just don't suit my palate. I learned after NYC that sometimes bagels and cream cheese can be a good combination, so I'm a lot more comfortable with the idea of these two together. 
When I saw this combination together at Kettleman's of smoked salmon and cream cheese combination, I knew I had to get it. 
And totally met my expectations! It was so good! So much smoked salmon, the right amount of cream cheese and some veggies? Delish! 
(The only thing I would have done without is the olives)

Colonnade Pizza - Nepean (ON)

Caesar Salad and Garlic bread for our large group.

I didn't really feel like pizza, so I ordered the Chicken Parmigiana:
Pretty big portion of chicken, cheese and pasta!
The tomato sauce was a little too sweet for the pasta and there was a lot of it. It might have been better served to have a little less sauce and maybe something salty like parmesan cheese to offset the sweetness of the tomato. At least, the chicken breast was tender and juicy.

Key Lime Pie
I couldn't resist - I love dessert and key lime pie. It was tart and tangy and it had this really nice chocolate crust. Yum!

Ottawa Ottawa

Colonnade Special with red peppers, onions, broccoli and ham

There was a lot of cheese on this pizza - it tasted like a twice baked pizza with a thick top layer of cheese and toppings and then more toppings before the cheesy bottom layer. Definitely interesting and different. 
I can't resist the dessert. This one was okay, but I've had better. There was a lot of cream in this one and not too much coffee liqueur. I also didn't really like the powdered chocolate on top.

Cora - Ottawa

Weekend Getaway to Ottawa! 
20161119_111411 20161119_093046
We went on an organized tour of Laurier House (with historical characters and all!)

Afterwards, we went to Cora for brunch:
Western Skillet with fruit and toast
Ham, onions, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes with cheese and a scrambled egg
It was okay - not the best skillet I've had but passable. 
The fruit was really pretty (but some of it wasn't really ripe yet and so there were some sour notes).
