Village Ice Cream

Well the winter season is upon us, what better way to feel better about this by having some Ice Cream.  Fuzzy’s birthday was a couple weeks ago, it was a warm day but felt like writing this post on a cold day.

Yann Haute Patisserie – it’s the yellow house

We had the opportunity to head over to the well talked about Yann Haute Patisserie just off of 4th Street SW behind the Bank of Montreal in a bright yellow house.  They are famous for their Macarons and if you love them you should head there.  There are very good reviews and recommendations of this bakery.  If you haven’t had a Macaron before they are two delicate almond based meringues with tasteful fillings.  This would be the...
