I love to eat and I love to try new foods. I enjoy eating in and out equally. I decorate cakes as a (paid) hobby. There is a 90% chance that I will order chicken in a restaurant. Forced tipping for substandard service (aka svc charge) is a BIG pet peeve.

Happy birthday to me!

I was here in October to cash in a loyalty card reward. I had purchased at other Panera locations previously, and because it had recently been my birthday, I was entitled to a free pastry.

The coffee shop is located across from a strip mall. It’s not pedestrian friendly in the vicinity, and you have to walk across the terrasse and around the back in order to get inside. But once inside, it was not crowded at all — only one person ahead of me in line. The server called after the customer ahead of me to give him a special beverage for his child. Then it was my turn.

I had my pick of any pastry in the showcase. I wanted the best deal possible so I chose a huge, sweet, sticky pastry covered in nuts and icing. Oh there would be no dieting today! I did not have to buy anything else to claim the freebie. Really nice staff here — friendly, helpful, pleasant. I hope to go back one day and spend more time here.

Dishes I tried:

A type of cinnamon bun with a dense almond filling, and lots and lots of almonds on top — and in the bag! This was so so SO good. This pastry is a bit big for one person.

Restaurant Lists

My List Experiment this is my first list and I dunno how they work yet ;)
MCSS McGill Chinese Student Society discount locations for 2011/12
Group Service Charges Evil dirty rotten service charges. I don't like them and I try to avoid places that slap them on to the bill. If the policy is upfront on the menu, it's more tolerable. But sometimes the charges sneak on, especially without merit.
