le matin de la vie

IMG_5205 I had seen La Matin de la Vie featured in a magazine and asked Fiona if she wanted to check them out.

See, they are in her neighborhood.

A tiny bakery, they also have 2 tables to sit and have your baked goods at.

Unfortunately the day we went, they were having some kind of renovations done to the building so there was drilling going on the whole time we were there.

IMG_5206 We both had the renkon bacon bread.

A foccacia type bread topped with renkon & bacon. Crunch from the renkon (lotus root) and saltiness from the bacon. Kinda like a pizza.

IMG_5209 I tried their marron danish.

This had glazed chestnuts, some sweet bean paste and some walnuts. So delicious, with just enough sweetness.

It was great meeting up with Fiona, I hope she enjoyed this place as well. I'll be back whenever I'm in this area.
