Magical Times in Monaco

Looking back on my life over the past 10 years I have been very fortunate to travel to some amazing places.  My favorite of these will always be Monaco.  The main reason this place is so dear to my heart is because I lived there after college.  I have returned twice since and came across the pictures…

Montreal’s Bakeries and Coffee Shops

La Brioche Doree served the ristretto espresso just like back in France and Italy.  They extract the perfect shot of espresso with the crema layer that the states can’t quite seem to pull off. O Plaisir Gourmands was the most impressive bakery I have ever experienced.  Leave the pastry making to the French to perfect….
