So happy to share this with you! Check out the #comic  book themed engagement session that we shot recently. So much fun!
One of the most wonderful things about working with a super awesome couple like Isabel and Anderson is the unique opportunity to capture them in their element, and among one of their many passions. As huge nerds ourselves, we definitely wanted to do this shoot justice.…ok, we’ll stop with the…

I've visited Blueberry Lake for the last four years, and my group of 8-12 friends have always had a fantastic time. Private hot tubs (which contrary to other reviews, have always been cleaned and well maintained for us) and beautiful scenic wraparound decks on the cottages have always been a selling point. About a 30 minute drive to Mont-Tremblant, which is quite nice. There is typically very little to no cell coverage, and we've never had working wi-fi in our cottage - but who cares? Seriously, take a moment away from your phone and just enjoy your time with friends in nature. Overall, this is a place we keep coming back to and will likely continue in the future. It's not perfect by any means, but not much these days is. I look forward to next year!

Very friendly staff, and always very welcoming. Great place to stop in for a quick coffee, sandwich, or salad. The daily specials are also quite good!

We were here for Osheaga this year, and visited twice during the weekend. The food was great, the service was great, and the atmosphere on the patio was very enjoyable. I'll definitely visit again the next time I'm in Montreal.

This restaurant is most certainly capable of achieving higher than a 3 star review. That said, my visit to the restaurant this past Sunday July 14 left much to be desired. After a night out with friends, my group of approximately 10 found this restaurant while walking up Spadina, looking for a place to have a good breakfast/lunch. There is a large banner on their patio advertising brunch specials, so we stopped in. During our time there, we were the only patrons in the restaurant. This wasn't much of a problem, as there was only one server working. If, however, they had become more busy, I'm sure things would have been more hectic. What was most troubling is that they were out of many of the breakfast and lunch items on their menu. No hollandaise sauce, so eggs benedict were out. No potatoes, so hashbrowns and other items were a no go. One of my vegetarian friends attempted to order five additional items from their menu, and after being told that they were out of all of them, opted to have just a drink instead. When my food arrived (I ordered the steak and eggs), it was fairly well presented and tasted ok. Nothing spectacular, but not terrible by any means. I did order my steak medium, and it came out well, but I wasn't too concerned. This restaurant has a great atmosphere, and could certainly have earned a four or five-star rating. The fact that they opened on a Sunday morning, advertising brunch, but could barely fulfil a large portion of their brunch menu leaves much to be desired. Given my experience, I don't think I'm likely to return here.

Had an excellent time tonight at the Kennedy Public House. From the attentive hostess, to our excellent server Andrew, I'm very delighted with our choice to eat here tonight. The food was delicious, our server Andrew was extremely attentive to our table, and the atmosphere is great. A small detail, but the chef's choice to add lime to the coleslaw accompanying my Kennedy burger was incredible - just enough bitter to counter the often rich taste that creamy coleslaws usually have. I will certainly be back, and will have no problem referring my friends to do the same.

Great food, decently quick service, and a good atmosphere on the patio. I'd recommend this restaurant and definitely eat here again.

The Crepe Kitchen is without a doubt the best breakfast establishment that I have visited in quite some time. As a privately owned restaurant, my friends and I take it upon ourselves to visit every Sunday. Not only is this a great place for us catch up with our friends that we have not seen all week, but the selection and quality of the food is incredible. Eduardo and Anna, the owners of The Crepe Kitchen, have become our friends, and for good reason. As regulars there, they are always welcoming, always courteous, and always happy to take a moment to chat with us. They even went so far as to name an item on the menu after one of our friends who has a medical condition (and for a time, this was one of the only places with food that he could stomach). I'd definitely recommend The Crepe Kitchen.
