Fresh & Sweet in Regina. Such a great place for breakfast, baking, desserts, coffee, and so much more.
Starting my morning off right with a latte and chocolate biscotti. I ate this the way most people east Oreos and milk.
Banana Bread French Toast...sooo good!
I could not wait to taste it.
Check this out! I'm not sure what I was expecting when I ordered the Banana Bread Freach Toast, I guess I assumed they would dip regular bread in a banana/egg mixture, but boy was I wrong! It is actual banana bread cooked like french toast. I loved it.
A slogan on the wall of Fresh & Sweet that I found, well, cute!

13th Ave Coffee House in Regina is a popular spot for coffee and lunch.
13th Ave Coffee House has a large menu. This is only food, drinks and dessert has its own board on another wall.
The maple, salmon salad sandwich on a multi-grain bun.
This is gluten-free chocolate cake. It was very decadent, and lighter than "regular" cake. It was chocolate, so basically I loved it.
Simmer Hotpot Restaurant in Regina.
This is a newly renovated restaurant, and the interior looks great. Very warm, comfortable and classy.
To start they brought me this cinnamon roll (which is sweetened with honey, so it's not very sweet at all), picked radishes and picked garlic. I loved the roll and eat the radishes like candy, and while I was afraid of the garlic, it was actually kind of sweet and mild...I only ate one piece though.
I ordered the Plate for Two, which comes with a variety of very thinly sliced beef and chicken, some other meatball options and a variety of vegetables.
There are two pots on your table filled with a mild broth that is brought to a boil. Once it's boiling you add a whatever you want to the pot to all cook and simmer together.
It doesn't take long for the food to cook, and it seems fast because it's a fun process as well.
Once everything is cooked your your liking, you scoop it out into your bowl, add sauces and enjoy!
The Green Spot Cafe in downtown Regina.
The Green Spot Cafe is a 100% vegetarian restaurant with many gluten free and organic options.
An aerial view of some of my choices. The delicious-looking big pie-like thing is a gluten free blueberry scone.
I had to try it, with a latte. This was my first gluten free scone and it was very interesting. It was much lighter than a regular scone and almost melted in my mouth. So yummy!
Coffee brewed and sold at the Green Spot Cafe is from specially selected beans roasted in their own roasting facility.
Bushwakker Brewpub in Regina.
Their fun menu offers information about the history of the pub and much more.
While Bushwakker is known from their specialty beers, I know them for their ridiculously good (and huge) plates of nachos. This is a small. I know for a fact that it is too much for four adults to polish off, so it's a great value for only about $12.
When at Bushwakker, you have to get the Wakker Burger, don't you?
It seemed a lot bigger when I was holding it than it does in this photo. It was great...and yes, that's bacon hanging out of it :)
Milky Way in Regina.
Sooo many options...sooo little time.
I love Milky Way for many reasons, one of them being that they have maintained their old walk-up, serve-you-through-a-window style that they had when they first opened in 1956. From the time Mily Way opens up in March until it closes in October, you rarely drive by and see no line up.
No words for this photo...
It's a Kit Kat Cyclone. So amazing. Their soft serve is not ice milk, I think it must be made with real cream.
Yep, those are mittens. It was only about 10 degrees Celsius the day I visited Milky Way, but I was not going to wimp out because it wasn't "ice cream weather", so I came prepared and loved every second of it.
