The Dessert House – Calgary, Alberta

The Dessert House is one of my favorite places to go in Calgary. There’s quite a few things on the menu that I really enjoy!

One of my favorite things are the deep fried cuttlefish balls. I know, I can make it at home myself, but it’s pretty neat to have such appetizers with a nice bubble tea.

I have a few favorite drinks at the Dessert House. At the end of the year, my favorite drink would be the fresh persimmon drink. It’s really good! It actually just tastes like persimmons blended up!! I love persimmons, and I just eat it as is. I leave the blending to the Dessert House. Another favorite drink of mine would be either the pineapple or lychee green tea (cold) with no jellies or pearls.

I’ve never been a fan of the large tapioca balls or jellies in any of my drinks, but I do appreciate a good bubble tea!

The Dessert House offers an extensive selection of snacks on their menu, from steamed rice crepes to instant noodles! We use to go here for a small dinner, or a late night snack and order lots of delicious treats.

Gourmet Croissant – Canmore, Alberta

Gourmet Croissant is a neat little place that is on Bow Valley Trail (one of the main roads that runs through Canmore). We went in the early morning, just as it opened on a weekend. It was really quiet in the store, but a nice little comfortable location for sure!

I think as we were there soo early, they had nothing ready besides plain croissant and chocolate one. They didn’t have the sandwiches yet or something, but regardless, we ordered ourselves some plain croissants and some hot chocolate.

When we first got our croissant, we kind of giggled to ourselves, as it didn’t look flaky or much like anything for that matter! However, as we started eating it, it was really soft, a slight sweetness to the croissant, and it was crispy out the outside too. It turned out to be a really good croissant!! So, it is true – never judge a book by it’s cover! We were thoroughly impressed.

The hot chocolate looked spectacular, and of course tasted good. It’s quite hard to goof up on hot chocolate! ๐Ÿ™‚ So, our overall experience at Gourmet Croissant was a positive one. I think I will return, but there are also soo many other great things I would love to try in Canmore! We’ll see!

Bubblemania Cafe – Calgary, Alberta

Bubblemania is a place where I have been going to for many years now. They offer decent wings for a decent price. A new thing that is very handy, Bubblemania Cafe now accepts Visa & Mastercard! Before, they only took cash. Wing nights are now Mon to Thurs 2-7pm 28ยข Wings!

My favorite drink is either the pineapple or lychee green tea – COLD, with nothing in it. I’m actually not a fan of the “bubble” or the tapioca, as I tend to choke on it. Their drinks are quite good, but I must say — I think most of them are made from powder also! I’m a much greater fan of fresh fruit smoothies, but I risk the fruit not being in season.

We love ordering snacks from here, as they have amazing wings, they also have a ton of snacks and almost meal like food. We really haent’ tried anything that we didn’t like, we even enjoyed their Calamari!
