Brekkie Cafe’s feature this month is almost too pretty to eat. The bubble tea pancakes showcase the restaurant’s signature thick buttermilk pancakes, which are finished in the oven with angel food cake to make them fluffy and crispy on the outside. The pancakes are layered with house made ube jam and topped with black tea custard made with Earl Grey tea, sweet fruit bobas, ube white chocolate glaze and whipped cream.

What’s better than cake? A mini cake made with Lucky Charms cereal. The Lucky Charms mini cake is available at Ollia Macarons & Tea right now for pre-order or walk-in and might just be the best thing for your table if you’re hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party. The gluten-free sponge cake is soaked in cereal milk and layered with marshmallow fluff, raspberry jam and gluten-free Lucky Charms covered in cereal buttercream and topped with Lucky Charms marshmallows. It sounds magically delicious.

When it still feels like winter in March, we need warm carbs to make us feel better about it. Located inside Bite in Inglewood, Bea’s Eatery makes its tasty poutine with hand-cut potatoes, pork belly, Quebec cheese curds, spring peas, chicken gravy and micro greens.

Pi Day (celebrating the mathematical constant pi, aka 3.14) is on March 14, so a pi-themed pie seems quite fitting. All three of Pie Junkie and Bakery’s locations in Mahogany, Spruce Cliff/Wildwood and Kensington will be adorning every single one of their pies with the Pi symbol on March 13 and 14. Some top flavours are banana toffee “banoffee” and classic apple.

After closing for renovations at the beginning of the year, Kensington’s Midtown Kitchen has officially re-opened. The restaurant’s new features include swanky green velvet booths and new menu items that include bolognese, veggie frittata and Cornish hen with potato puree.
