Goldfinch Tavern’s Weekend Brunch

Some of Seattle’s best style enthusiasts were invited to experience Goldfinch Tavern’s weekend brunch at the luxury Four Season Hotel Seattle and oh man, what a meal!. The brunch buffet is packed full of sweet and savory delights that will give you life. I would highly recommend this brunch because of it’s beautiful waterfront backdrop, unlimited mimosas and central location of downtown Seattle. Search for the hashtag #SeattleGents on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook for more details.

What is Fika?

July 18, 2016

What is Fika?

When you travel to Stockholm you’re going to see the word ‘Fika’ pasted on coffee shops and cafes all around the city, but what does it mean? Fika, is slang for coffee break. The act of Fika generally includes a cup of coffee, possibly conversation and a snack; which includes sandwiches or pastries. You may might not believe this, but Sweden is ranked 3rd in coffee consumption per capita. Coffee choices can be found virtually anywhere around the city, so after a bit of research, I settled on Fabrique Stenugnsbageri, as my first place to have Fika. This place has excellent pastries. I would recommend ordering the cinnamon bun and latte for your first go.

corktown detroit

West of Downtown Detroit you’ll find the up and coming area of Corktown. The good people at Visit Detroit guided me through this historic area and helped me discovered some delicious hot spots.

Before I get into the hot spots, let me tell you a bit of Corktown history. Corktown is Detroit’s oldest neighborhood and has been established since 1834. The area received its name from the Irish settlers which were primarily from County Cork, Ireland. Although the neighborhood contains tons of newer developments, it still retains some of its original Irish flare.

You can find notable restaurants like Ottava Via, Slows BBQ and Astro Coffee by driving along Michigan Avenue, but some eateries are located in more secluded areas. Green Dot Stables is not on Michigan Avenue but is worth the drive to locate. Green Dot is known for it’s delicious $2 — $3 dollar sliders and horse racing aesthetic. Every week the restaurant chooses a special mystery meat slider. This week’s special slider was alligator. I wasn’t bold enough to try it but I’ve heard it was pretty good. I would suggest ordering their Fried Chicken slider with maple syrup and the Poutine. It kind of tastes like a chicken and waffles combination.

The Spud Shack

Yesterday I received a private tasting at The Spud Shack in New Westminster, BC. The Spud Shack is known for it‘s Vanfoodster award winning Poutine, but they also sell local craft beer, a variety of burgers and delicious desserts.

I was really excited about tasting the veggie burger option. The veggie burger had tons of flavor and when paired with the vegan-based gravy in the poutine, The Spud Shack menu is a vegetarians delight. The only thing I didn’t taste were the desserts but maybe I’ll save that for next time.

Other highlights include: “Eff’ing Good Burger” and the assortment of sauces.

Hello Robin

October 15, 2014



If you love sweets like I do you then Seattle’s Hello Robin is the place to go. Not only does Hello Robin serve fresh, warm and soft baked cookies but they also serve Seattle’s very own Molly Moons Ice Cream. Robin and Moons become a wonderful combination when you order the Hello Robin ice cream sandwich pictured above. I was lucky enough to grab one of the legendary Mackles’more (Named after Seattle rapper Macklemore) cookies right as they were coming out of the oven. The Mackles’more cookie is made with chocolate chip cookie, graham cracker, and marshmallows. So Good!

Moore Coffee – Seattle

August 14, 2014


If you’re traveling through Seattle and looking for one of those not so secret but cool spots that most know about but few have been, then you should check out Moore Coffee located in the heart of downtown Seattle. What I like about Moore is the intimate atmosphere and relaxing décor.

Moore Coffee X 1930 2nd Ave.Seattle, WA 98101



Not only does Moore produce an assortment of delicious hot and cold caffeinated beverages but they also have a small kitchen that creates Instagram worthy breakfast waffles and sandwiches. My favorite choice to order is the Strawberry Shortcake waffle, which has fresh strawberries that are smothered in whipped cream and hot Matcha green tea latte.
