Yesterday I met up with my friend (and fellow artist and blogger) Ronna, and we ventured into deepest, darkest Vankleek Hill, which, being Ontario's gingerbread capital (the wood trim on houses, not the cookies) is really more light and airy than deep and dark!
Was that sentence complex enough for you?
We decided to try out the Limes Cafe, which neither of us had visited before. Here is the Divine Miss Ronna posing out front:
Ronna had a nice cup of coffee, and I had a narse cuppa tea, in this very cute elephant teapot:
When I heard the owner's English accent, I knew I was going to get a decent cuppa, which I rarely do when dining out in North America.
For lunch, I had a very nice broccoli and cheese soup, and chicken/cheese/pesto panini. Yum!
Ronna had a great-looking mushroom quiche with salad. Had I not had quiche the night before, I would have tried this myself! The lunch was yummy and homemade.
We couldn' t resist a little dessert. Although there was some very tempting cakes and pies and squares, I was too full to have anything more than a delicious chocolate chip/orange cookie:
Ronna had another cup of Joe and a chocolate biscotti:
The cafe is sunny and tastefully-decorated with lots of places to sit:
And being the blog-aholics we are, of course we both brought cameras. Here's a picture of Ronna...
...taking a picture of me! (Which I stole from her blog, which has more great pictures of our fun outing yesterday!)
Future luncheon outings to Vankleek Hill are planned. Thanks Ronna!
