And although I don't have a picture of it, on the way home from our concert that night we were starving so we split a burger and fries from McDonald's on Rue St-Denis. It was hands down the SEEDIEST McDonald's we have ever seen. Wow!
|Last bite of our Breakfast Bagels at Cafe Depot|
Of all the places we ate that you can't find in St. John's, there were only two that we visited twice because they were so good. Both of them were breakfast places and Cafe Depot was one of them. We figured it would be mediocre, but when we started to eat our Bacon and Egg sandwiches, on bagels toasted with butter with choice of Swiss or Real Cheddar cheese, we were quite impressed!

|Enjoying a Cuppa Java and a Red Velvet cupcake after Schwartz's at Second Cup.|
I wanted a little something sweet to finish off lunch so we stopped into Second Cup for a Red Velvet cupcake - it was sooo goood after all of that smoky meat.
|Our beverage choices for the week.|
|My Lemonade at Kilo.|
|Josh's Chili Wrap at Kilo.|
Kilo was a place that had a door leading straight to our hotel's lobby. I read somewhere that it's specialty was in baked goods and cakes, though we decided to order wraps instead. I had yummy goats cheese and mandarin orange chicken wrap (California Wrap I think on the menu) and Josh had this tasty chili and cheese wrap. What I liked about this place was the fun sides that came with the meals. Each meal comes with Nacho Chips and a Green Salad with this very tasty citrus dressing. I also ordered a lemonade, which was super cute and Josh even got a lollipop with his diet coke!
In all, the first two full days were a great success food wise! With our drinks that night in the hotel room we also ate some kettle cooked chips and sour cherry candy :)

|BK Whopper & Fries.|
|Frozen Yogurt - Blueberry, Blackberry and Pineapple.|
There were so many things to choose from in the Eaton Centre cafeteria that we were very overwhelmed. The least threatening lineup was at BK, so this meal was more out of a process of elimination than pure choice. Still, it fueled me adequately for my designated shopping day :) On the way home from shopping we dropped into Complexe Desjardins for a frosty treat!

|Josh was shocked at the economical beer prices.|
On the way home we stopped into IGA for some snacks for the night (it was still only like 7:30pm) and were shocked by how cheap a dozen of Rickard's beer was - $15.99! Josh literally moaned and we were sad that we couldn't smuggle a dozen back home with us.

So that's it! I think this is my longest blog to date, and certainly the one with the most images. I really wasn't disappointed by much food the entire trip, which was great. I would say that my favorite meals were definitely the Eggstravaganza at Eggspectation, Venison at Les Infidels, Smoked Salmon Sandwich at Les 3 Brasseurs, and my Crab/Steak combo at The Keg. Shout outs go to Sour Cherry Candy, Molson Export, Mars Bars and Croissants.
