Tips by Locals to Help You Celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday

orange tick WATCH THE CRUISE SHIPS FROM THIS BAR AND BISTRO IN VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- writes Allison in Victoria -- The Breakwater Bistro at Ogden Point in James Bay, is great for lunch. You can walk the 1/2 km breakwater out in the ocean and watch the pilot boats guide the freighters and cruise ships. After 4:00 pm the bar opens and they have local craft beer on tap. Live music a few nights a week at 8:00 pm. Good food, juicy sunsets and great ocean view on the patio.
orange tick OJIBWAY TACOS IN TORONTO'S KENSINGTON MARKET -- writes JC Lam in Toronto -- Kensington Market is always an interesting area to browse. Now you can combine it with a visit to Pow Wow Cafe, an intimate spot that serves Ojibway tacos. The owner of this business is Ojibway chef Shawn Adler who cooks Indigenous dishes at Pow Wows and who owns a couple of food businesses. Don't know what an Ojibway taco is? It serves as a fusion style gateway to First Nations' culture. It's frybread that is cut into pieces and forms the base of a delicious topping (e.g. fish, beef, vegetarian). vegetables, etc. Weekend brunch is usually an expertly cooked egg dish along with the loaded up fry bread. Open Thursday to Sunday.
orange tick EXCELLENT BRASSERIE IN TORONTO, ONTARIO -- writes Evelyn in Toronto, Canada -- Tourists with hotel accommodation in the Toronto downtown core will have to take the subway to reach this smallish restaurant because it's in one of our city neighbourhoods. That's OK; I think it's fun dining with the locals away from the tourist trail. The restaurant is called Merlot. It's located at 2994 Bloor Street West and it's a treat for me to introduce them and their lovely French brasserie menu. Think escargots, grilled calamari, steak frites with bearnaise sauce and liver and onions. Entrees range from $15-$35. I chose to go there for my birthday (many times). Call for reservations: 416 236 0081 and they'll give you driving instructions or subway details. Enjoy the treat, ladies and ... tell them Journeywoman sent you.
orange tick SMALL, INTIMATE, GASTRO BAR IN FREDERICTON, NEW BRUNSWICK -- One of my favorite restaurants and bar is 540 Kitchen & Bar on Queen St. It's small and intimate with a varied menu that appeals to all tastes, and the attention to detail is truly appreciated. Cozy tables near the window give patrons a street view, especially desired during our renowned Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival in September. Website:
orange tick A JUICY DELI IN VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- writes Maureen in Vancouver -- I recommend the Dirty Apron Deli (and cooking school, if you are interested). The classes look fun but I have only eaten at the deli. They offer super fresh gourmet grilled baguette sandwiches, two soups of the day, three salads and the desserts - oh my!. All have interesting flavour combos and ingredients like grilled vegetables, faro and creamy cheeses. They are packed at lunch, so go early or later and you will have a delicious, freshly made meal. This place is perfect for a traveller who needs a break in her sightseeing schedule. Address: 540 Beatty St. Website:
orange tick A CUP OF TEA AND A QUICK BITE IN EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- writes Angie in Edmonton -- The Tea Girl is a locally owned tea shop that also serves food and it's my favorite place in the whole world. This is how they describe themselves. 'Sit, enjoy tea or grab a quick bite to eat. We have a fantastic selection of tea, food items and tea-themed gifts. The tea girl has over 100 tea and tea-blend choices. If you need help, don't be afraid to ask one of our lovely team members. Our staff complete extensive training and are very knowledgeable. They can help you choose a tea to suite your palate. We have a kitchen on site where we bake almost all of our own desserts. We have a daily soup selection and chili as well as a few sandwich selections for a light lunch menu. We are often trying out new food options for our menu selections. Although we are not a gluten-free facility, we offer a wide selection store baked gluten-free and wheat-free items. We also have some dairy free and egg free items, and vegan selections. Website:
orange tick BEST CHOCOLATE IN OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- writes Ruth in Ottawa -- Hello from Canada's capitol. This is my newsletter tip submission for 2015. I'd like other women visiting my city to know that I recommend and love the European feel of Stubbe (since 1845), a chocolate shop and bakery that also makes great spiced cocoa and truffles. I really like their lavender and their balsamic dark chocolate, but they also do gorgeous and delicious German-style tortes. You can find them downtown at 375 Dalhousie Street in the Mercury Court building. Check out their (delicious) website at:


canada easel and flagIt took Mother Nature 485,000,000 years to mold Gros Morne National Park into the geological and visual wonder we know today. Encircled by tiny seaside communities, and encompassing forests, freshwater fjords, bogs, barren lowlands, moose, and striking cliffs and shorelines, this area is also world-renowned for its complex geology. This is a picture album about what happened when General Motors invited me to test drive a brand new 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 Pickup in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland. Those who know me appreciate the fact that I love cars, adore road trips yet have absolutely no desire to drive the vehicle myself. I simply yearn for the thrill of the open road and like nothing better than being the pampered passenger. When I explained this to my General Motors hosts they agreed to do all the driving while I soaked up the luxury of the vehicle and the fabulous sights everywhere we drove. Click here for photos to entice you to visit this gorgeous part of Canada.
