Yesterday Hayley and I went on a day trip to where I go to school in London, ON so that I could pick up a few things at my apartment. It had all the makings of a good road trip: sunny weather, Starbucks, and the Mamma Mia soundtrack to sing along to.
When we got to London we quickly picked up a few necessities from my apartment (more clothes, my coconut and chickpea flours, and some cookbooks... yes these are necessities) then headed out for lunch. We went to Organic Works, a bakery cafe I've been wanting to check out for ages. I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped inside and saw it's cozy eating area.
And the food just impressed me even more! It was fresh, healthy, and best of all, nut-free! And the best part? Their mouth-watering display of store-made baked goods. I am so excited I discovered this place!
For my meal I ordered the soup and sandwich combo. My sandwich was made with real roasted turkey, avocado spread, lettuce, tomato and sprouts on toasted buckwheat rye bread. I didn't realize it until I bit into it, but the avocado spread was actually guacamole. Yum!
The salad I ordered was a beet, rutabaga and sprout salad. So good!
As we were leaving we had a taste of their orange chocolate muffin sample (it was delicious) and bought a loaf of their buckwheat oatmeal and flax bread. I can't wait to make my sandwiches on this!
After our lunch I took Hayley to our indoor farmer's market to show her around, then we drove the 1.5 hours back home. It was a short trip, but it was nice to just chill with my sister for a day!
Have you discovered any great new restaurants lately?
