It’s Friday night and we are kid free! YES! A date night! This usually happens once a week when all 4 kids are at the “ex’s”. We strongly feel that a weekly date night is a NECESSITY for any couple with or without kids. Let me remind you…we have four kids. Exhausted from the work week and various kids’ activities we decided to do something low key like mechanical bull riding! Ha Ha, kidding! Seriously though, we just wanted to get out of the house and enjoy an evening without breaking the bank. My suggestion was to grab a coffee and maybe hit up a book store as there were some new releases I wanted to check out. Although we love our Timmies and Starbucks…we were just not in the mood for another coffee chain restaurant. So we decided to head down to Corydon Ave., a trendy strip in Winnipeg that offers a variety of small unique venues. That’s when we spotted “La Cuisson Café” and their bright sign in the window announcing “NOW OPEN”. Eager to try something new, we quickly parked and made our way in. The atmosphere was elegant and inviting with very friendly knowledgeable staff. The décor was a mixture of modern with a splash of antique which is one of my personal faves! We sat at a small vintage table for two and opened the imprinted leather menus. There was a vast selection of English Afternoon Tea (Hightea), Syphoned Coffee, Fruit Teas, Sandwiches, Waffles, Soups, Salads and Homemade Desserts. After contemplating over whether I wanted tea or coffee I finally decided on the Caramel Tea and Rob selected a specialty coffee. I have to say, I usually like my coffee and tea to contain a pound of sugar (seriously I am a triple triple type of girl). BUT I did not need more than a few grains of sugar in my tea. The flavor was amazing and so natural. Rob enjoyed his coffee black as well (normally a double double type of guy). We couldn’t help but try an array of the lovely desserts that were nicely displayed at the front counter. OMG! That’s all I can say is OMG. We selected 5 dainties to try and they were simply scrumptious! I couldn’t tell you the names of the desserts but you really can’t go wrong with any of their selections. Rob and I will definitely be frequenting the “La Cuisson Café” for future date nights!
