The Green Elephant Cafe, Kingston

The Green Elephant Cafe, Kingston

The Green Elephant is a spot in Kingston that I have driven by many times but have never managed to stop and go in. Today, I went in. It was only about 11:30 and I was shocked at how busy it was. Well, maybe not shocked-I’d heard good things about the place. I was lucky to get a seat, though. Service was practically immediate,considering how busy it was. I was greatly tempted  by the Caesar wrap-one of my favs, but…

Maritime Cider Express Company

Maritime Cider Express Company

I don’t drink and this, perhaps, puts me a distinct disadvantage when it comes to writing alcohol related posts. How would I know what was good and what was ….plonk. So a visit to Maritime Express Cider wasn’t about the cider, even though I’m told it’s very very good. It’s about a start up of a company looking to combine local history with local produce and  churn out a delicious cider served in a charming atmosphere. The setting is a…

The Church Brewing Company

The Church Brewing Company

Truth be told, when I am casing a joint to blog about, I usually just plop myself down , order some food, surreptitiously snap a few pictures, do some  research and craft a blog post from my findings- it’s not often I get a deluxe tour and the lowdown on a restaurant. I was luckily enough to get just that at the Church Brewing Company in Wolfville. Erin Haysom, who along with her husband Matt, brother-in-law Steve Haysom, restaurant manager…

Noshing at the Edible Art Cafe

Noshing at the Edible Art Cafe

Well, before you plan on noshing, you better be sure you can get in.  The place was packed the Saturday my friend and I stopped in to check it out. We did get a couple stools at the counter, but there was a steady influx of people coming and going . What was the fuss? I am still not entirely sure but it’s definitely a popular spot. It’s not like it’s a new place people are checking out either- the…

Farmers Family Diner -A Restaurant Review

Farmers Family Diner -A Restaurant Review

Farmer’s Family Diner in Aylesford is one of the places, well, you notice the sign but never have time to stop in. Well, this time we did stop in- better than making supper right? What caught our eye on the menu was the “Colossal Club Sandwich” Now, I don’t usually orders sandwiches and stuff like that in a restaurant-why would I, when I can easily make that at home? (Don’t ask me if I do make it at home.) But,…

Strawberry U-Picks in Nova Scotia

Strawberry U-Picks in Nova Scotia

It’s that time again. Strawberry Time.Shortcake time. Jam time. Time to fill the freezer with these luscious red berries so we have a reminder of sweet summer days in the dead of winter. That means it’s time to hit the local strawberry U-Picks.   Only two problems with that. Websites that list U-Picks are often woefully out of date, and  The major frost we had a few weeks back really did a number on our fragile, fledgling blossoms and baby…

Mic Mac Bar and Grill-A Restaurant Review

Mic Mac Bar and Grill-A Restaurant Review

Would you expect to find a busy restaurant sharing a parking lot with a RV rental? Well we didn’t-didn’t even notice Mic Mac Bar  and Grill the few times we drove our visiting friends down to pick up their vacation RV. Once we did notice it, we thought it would be easy enough to find again. My brother is a former Halifax cabbie and he knows where everything is-all the good restaurants, shortcuts and  back roads. We should really ask…
