Spotted Tuesday

Spotted Tuesday is back!

When DH has a day off and Ethan is at school, we usually go out for a breakfast date. We recently went to Isola Cafe, located at Spazio, not too far away from where we live. This cafe becomes our favorite place to go. It has great customer service which is very important to us. Our principal is that no matter how good the food is and how famous the restaurant is, if they have poor customer service, we unlikely will be back. Another reason we like this cafe is that they do serve great coffee and western foods, reminding us the breakfast we usually if we were in Canada. The also serve foods fushioned 

We love to order these mouthwatering Eggs Benedict, served with crispy hash brown and delicious coleslaw. It comes with a cup of handcrafted illy coffee. Can you guess how much we spent for 2 sets of these?







With the above picture in mind, I looked for great handmade products at Artfire. I included some Christmas themed items as well since we are in the middle of Holiday Season and that Cafe was nicely decorated. I really like how they decorate it: simple and nothing over the top. Take a look at that piece of polka dot fabric and fir on the table for example. It's a red and green and they represent Christmas!

  2. The Isola Cafe sounds like a wonderful place to eat and chill out - always wonderful to find a place like that! And we are like you and your husband, the service HAS to be good at a restaurant before we will go back. It is such a fabulous surprise to see my earrings featured. Thank you so much, Nat! Will share with the world now.

    1. Eating out is more like an experience than just filling up our stomach. We won't have a good time if the service is poor. It's always a pleasure featuring your work, Catherine!
