Blintzes NEXT time, for sure

I got there before noon and beat the lunch crowd. Yes, there’s free wi-fi.

I got back to the wonderful Free Times CafĂ© today, introducing the place to my buddy Bill. I had intended to try the blintzes but the all-day breakfast was just too good to pass up. No regrets. On the contrary, it was a VERY good choice. Toast, potato patties, a couple of eggs, peameal bacon or tomatoes, salad greens, slice of watermelon, slice of kiwi and (neat surprise) a delicious little section of pomegranate. Bottomless cup of good coffee, refilled frequently… what’s not to love?

Bill’s bill came in under 9 bucks. Mine was just under $11, because I splurged and substituted strip bacon for the standard peameal. Given the peameal bacon/tomatoes choice, the saintly Bill opted for tomatoes. He announced that he could really taste them so there’s something special there. Organic perhaps, Bill thought.

If you are near the corner of College and Spadina, or you’ve been exploring Kensington Market, treat yourself. Here’s a map.

Your walks are very inspiring! The routes you take make one think of all the options out there for a stroll. Healthy choices you make are spreading good ideas. I laughed at the Bill’s bill part. Very good!
