Olive & Gourmando is always busy. It’s going to get even busier now that it’s been listed in Maclean’s controversial 50 best restaurants in Canada. We went there last summer for breakfast and found ourselves back again for the pastries after needing an escape from the heat. Iced coffee, a lemonade (or was it sweet iced tea?), an oddly shaped almond croissant, and the perfect chocolate chip cookie (thin, crisp, moist and slightly chewy).
Pictures from last year’s visit are here.
