We celebrated my first Mother’s Day in a pocket of our city that has quickly climbed the ranks to be one of my new favourites. The French Quarters, also known as the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean, is an adorable little piece of France located on 86 Avenue and 91 Street. It is also home to Cafe Bicyclette, and it lived up to all of the charm that the name elicits.
It was the perfect spot to celebrate this special “first”. Possessing equal parts cute and charming, it also offers a wide selection of breakfast/brunch, lunch and dinner options. As evidenced below, we stuck to desserts only for this occasion!
Something we stumbled upon, which we will be sure to return and check out when we have more time is the community’s Farmer’s Market, which takes place every Sunday from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Between the delicious cafe itself, and the various events that take place in the area, we can’t wait to go back and discover more!
Fellow Edmontonians, have you unearthed any new favourite spots lately?
Have a great week, and Happy Canada Day!
