Caffe Sola in Saskatoon.
Lovely menu features a variety of unique dishes using local ingredients.
The atmosphere is very cozy.
Spinach and apple tart with roquefort cheese + bbq black bean soup + caramel latte = delicious!
Broadway Cafe in Saskatoon. It's a 1950's-style diner with fun art and photos all over the walls featuring the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and James Dean.
I had a vanilla milkshake (extra thick, of course) and poutine. Yum!
Saboroso Brazilian Steakhouse in Saskatoon...this place is pretty cool.
Here's how it works at Saboroso: their signature style of dining is Gaucho (which is translated to a South American cowboy) carved meat. To let them know you're ready for the meat to start coming, you flip the cube on your table to green. It will keep on coming until you flip it to red.
When you're had your fill of meats, you flip it to red.
The "all you can eat" meal also includes access to their Common Table, which is a lovely assortment of salads, condiments and other hot dishes.
Then, the meat started coming. I had my tongs ready to grab the piece they cut for me.
More meat from another Gaucho. There are several types of meats that are brought to your table, including beef, chicken, lamb, sausage, pork and my personal favourite, roasted pineapple dusted in brown sugar and cinnamon.
Yep, more meat! Each type of meat is marinated with the most delicious sauces and glazes and slowly roasted to perfection.
I had to save room for dessert because I had to check out Manhattan Gastropub where I heard you can roast marshmallows and make your own smores right at your table.
I have to admit, it was pretty fun.
Just like camping :)
All ready! Tasted SO good...I need to get me one of these indoor, portable smores kits.

Starting the morning right with a latte and treat from Souleio in Saskatoon.
Souleio has just about everything. Local and organic foods, wines, baking, a deli and beverages. They also cater.
My choices: Vanilla latte and a white chocolate, cherry scone. Yum!
I got a few suggestions from our fans and followers to try out Gibson's Fish & Chips, so I did.
I hear Gibson's uses a tradition English recipe for their batter. It was crispy (not soggy at all), which I really enjoyed.
What is a trip to Saskatoon without a stop at Jerry's Food Emporium for some gelato?!?
So many choices...and this is just one of the two freezers full of this creamy deliciousness.
My choice: cherry cheesecake and dark swiss chocolate gelato. A pretty good combo :)
My final stop of my Saskatoon food tour, the very popular Calories Bakery and Restaurant.
More sweets...my favourite!
I had the Portobello Sandwich, which was comprised of local garlic butter, roasted portobello with three cheeses and a lovely side salad.
It may be hard to believe, but it tasted even better than it looks. One of my favourite meals of this trip.
And when at Calories, dessert is a must. I tried the Turtle Square, and just as the name suggests, it tasted almost exactly like a Turtle chocolate, so, amazing.
This photos does not require a caption...it speaks for itself :)
