Complete Galette at Suzette Bistro

An absolutely delicious way to start a Sunday with a Complete Galette. A savory buckwheat crepe filled with French ham, melted gruyere cheese and an egg served with a market mixed greens salad dressed with a light garlic vinaigrette.

$16 at the newly opened Suzette Bistro in Mission, 2210 4th Street S.W., 403-802-0036,

Ollia Macarons & Tea

After promising myself a visit for far too long, I finally made it to Ollia to try their Blue Cheese, Pear and Pecan Macaron – and so glad I did! For a blue cheese junkie like me, these are the perfect treat. They’re bright blue, with an alluring aroma; they smell like blue cheese and have a subtle taste of it too. The almond meringue shell is made only from egg whites, almond flour and a delicate use of sugar – perfect if you don’t have a sweet tooth. And, bonus… there’s only 50 calories in each!

Tin Cup Whiskey

Who doesn’t like good whiskey? Technically Tin Cup is bourbon, given that it contains over 50% corn mass, but I mean, how can you go wrong with that either? Made from Colorado Rocky Mountain water, it goes down smooth and is perfect in a classic Old Fashioned. Yes, yes, yes.

$45-50. Available at select liquor stores.
