I haven't been as active in the forum lately, mainly because I've been so busy rediscovering my amazing city!

Anyone here loves cupcakes? I freaking LOVE cupcakes! I was walking along St-Denis street in Montréal and bumped into this amazing cupcake shop called D liche.

http://www.dliche.ca/en/

Their cupcakes are OMGSOGOOD and the staff is super friendly. I recommend the triple chocolate one. It's delicious!

The Italian architecture magazine DOMUS has profiled the Fogo Island Inn.

I suppose those QC ads aren't targeted at Europeans. They live in Europe; if they're to travel across the pond it's to see north America not another version of themselves. Likewise, I'm not going to travel to a European city that champions how north American they are.

Yes indeed. Europeans don't give of shit of ''old stone'', but they do enjoy the old city aswell.
They just feel to be at home.

These ads are for Americans apparently.

Hence, as I am a huge fan of European architecture, it's a nice place for me to walk !

I'm a big fan of old European architecture as well. I heard Boston is a great city for that as well, but haven't been. That said, the best European architecture I've seen thus far in north America has been Mexico City and Quebec City.

I will never forget a conversation years ago with a very U Brit who, when I asked if he planned to visit QC while in Canada, sniffed "if I wish to see French Provincial, I'll go to France".

Wow that's badass! I wish Alberta would go harder with tourism advertising like NFLD does though. We have so many incredible and diverse/unique landscapes in this province, too many for them all to not be showcased. The badlands, the mountains, the springs, the dessert.... I should apply for a job with tourism Alberta

They have a bunch on the tourism Website, I just wish they didn't speak and instead just used local music or musicians playing.

Travel Alberta does seem to be stepping it up a bit lately. Not sure if it was posted before, but a lot of that Calgary footage is also in this one from a little while back.

Video Link


There is also one with the Edmonton specific shots.

When you're able to make it out to Calgary, try Crave Cookies and Cupcakes, (one of their locations in trendy Kensington neighbourhood), and Buttercream Bake Shoppe (one of their locations on 17th Ave. S.W., Calgary's Red Mile -- popular street nicknamed for Calgary Flames/Stampeders). Buttercream Bake Shoppe uses real buttercream icing, while Crave uses a sugar icing (my wife asked when we were out there some time ago), but all are very good, nevertheless! If you're into doughnuts -- well, Krispy Creme is no longer in business -- but for gourmet doughnuts, there's Jelly Modern Doughnuts, also near 17th Ave. S.W.

We always have to bring some cupcakes back home to Regina at the end of our trips out there! (Doughnuts are best eaten fresh, cupcakes will survive well in a cooler for the easy 7 to 8 hour drive back!)

When you make it out to Vancouver, there's Cupcakes, or for dessert, True Confections, among tons more great dessert places! Be on the lookout for the various ice cream/gelato shoppes, too! (eg. Gelarmony, formerly Mondo Gelato, on the notable Robson St.)

Welcome and enjoy your (future) Western Canada visits!

BTW, this thread makes me want to go out and visit all these places! Thanks, everybody!
