It was hard to ignore L-eat Express last week, with its free coffee each and every morning. But hey, it worked — and into the café I went for the very first time. When you step inside, the first thing you’ll notice is a tall metal rack with the day’s pastries, cookies and baked desserts. If only every morning could start, guilt-free, with one these delicious pastries and a whole milk latte.

Pictured above: the dark chocolate chip cookies, topped with a sprinkle of fleur de sel. Cookies are $2 each, $10 for a half-dozen or $20 for a full dozen. The café’s frozen dough ($7) can be purchased to make your own cookies at home.  

For those looking for more substance, there are egg sandwiches ($3.75) with egg, basil, tomato, arugula and cheddar; or the breakfast express ($4) with chive scrambled eggs, potato hash, spinach and cheddar cheese, +/- bacon. 

L-eat Express, 410 Adelaide St. W., 416-601-9226

Restaurant Review: Chef Steve Gonzalez is back with his gigantic new King West eatery

Cherry-picking the menu works really well. Some of the fusion items, where East meets Latin, are really fun. Chef’s suite of ceviches are superbly entertaining: we’re captivated by the variegated flavours of tiraditos, raw tuna napped in passion fruit and lulo sauce, with black and white sesame seeds, chili-studded purée of butternut squash and baby greens.

Post-ROM sips at Museum Tavern

Blink and you’ll miss Museum Tavern. Squirreled upstairs and across the street from the Royal Ontario Museum sits the suitably named brasserie. The charming space has been satiating museum goers since it opened back in 2012.
