Hello Jo

This morning I met up with my Mom & Brother for a coffee date.  Local Jo was the obvious choice since David lives close by.   Yes, this is the same Local Jo’s that Ang raves about all the time!

Such a cute little café! Jo’s offers fair trade and organic coffee & local teas, home baked treats, sublime soups & sandwiches.  Right up my alley! :)


There was a decent selection of hot and cold beverages.  I was ready for more caffeine and ordered an Iced Americano with vanilla syrup.



We had a good time catching up.


Along with the drinks, we shared this chocolate mint biscotti. Yes, chocolate mint biscotti.  Quite possibly the BEST biscotti that I’ve ever had.  No lie. I love me some biscotti and must re-create this ASAP. I believe mint chocolate chips are the key.

While we were sitting there, I decided that I actually needed something with more substance.  There was a small selection of sandwiches, soup & pizza.  Everything sounded good; ended up ordering the roasted veggie sandwich for lunch.


Delish!  Roasted green peppers, carrots, onions, mushrooms (and probably more veggies?) with pesto and cheese on a baguette.  It was made yesterday so they actually gave it to me for 50% off too.  Less then $4.00 with tax.  Gotta love a cheap and tasty lunch!


This was not my first time visiting Jo’s but it’s the first time I’ve had their food.  YUM!  I will be back!  

Do you frequent local cafés or do you prefer chains like Starbucks or Tim Horton’s?


Mom and I spent the rest of the afternoon shopping.  I picked up some new bed linens, a few dishes, a wallet and made a quick trip to Bulk Barn.  Oh, and scored some fresh, local corn that we had for supper tonight!  Nothing better then fresh veggies. :)

Oh, and have to say that while I haven’t been tracking, my eats of late has been awesome! I’m really trying to be aware of my hunger and making healthy choices.

I’m really tired, wishing I had of booked a vacation day tomorrow.  That’s all.
