However, if you pay for a 60-dollar two-head light lunch, you expect a little upscale ambiance. Until our food reached our table, we were whining about the restaurant atmosphere.
Overall, I think we paid more than we came in for.
Honey West Restaurant is in 399 Elizabeth St.

Visited Montana's lately? You should. Because the Mediteranean Goat Cheese Chicken on their new menu is really good.
Montana's Burlington is in 3040 Davidson Court. Haven't dined there yet. I'm a frequent visitor of one of their Oakville branches, though. Their service has always been superb. It's on 3537 Wyecroft Road.

A good crowd always makes a good ambiance. I remember the patio almost always full in the summer. I wouldn't wonder why. Caffe Demetre Burlington is located at 1250 Brant Street, (905)331-6007. Photos credited to their website.

- You think $11 is a good deal for two (or three) movies (or $5 every Tuesdays),
- You want to snuggle comfortably in your car while watching movies (not bad for dates... or for tagging along sleeping babies?),
- You don't mind the acoustics of your car stereo (you'll tune in to your theatre's frequency for the movie audio),
- You need a playground to entertain your kid/s while you watch your movies, or
- You simply want the 1950's drive-in theatre experience
then try 5 Drive-In in 2332 9th Line Oakville. Check out their website for rates, promos, and schedules. Photo borrowed from their website. I could not see myself bringing a camera in a movie theatre, sorry.
One more thing, 5-drive in requests no outside food. I'm appalled why some people would bring their own.

Overall, it's just your ordinary sports bar, with ordinary interiors, and not-so-good service.

Spencer Smith park is the heart of downtown Burlington. Any Burlington visit will not be complete without stopping by Burlington's window to Lake Ontario.

Until I found out that the hubby needs to work tomorrow. Bummer.
Nevertheless, if you guys haven't come up with anything to do this weekend yet, you may want to check out RBG's world-famous Rock Garden. Not just for the tulips in spring bloom, but for scavenger hunt, bbq lunch, live classical music and some expert gardening Q&A. The Royal Botanical Garden is located at: 680 Plains Road West. The Tulip Celebration is scheduled May 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 to 18, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check out their website for more details: http://www.rbg.ca/.

They have a sports bar ambiance, causal friendly crowd (and staff), patio dining, side alley chilling, game screens, live bands, signature cocktails, dj's and dancing! And, boy! Do they serve good food. Their Baked Garlic Shrimp is my fave-o-rite!
Check out their website for their daily deals: http://www.joedogs.com/index.php?section=burlington. Joe Dog's is located in 531 Brant Street. We're heading there again. Tonight.

- The 'Sunday Jazz Brunch' set a relaxing tone to our visit... I just love live music!
- The tasteful cozy lounges in the dining area were welcoming.
- The staff was warm and friendly.
- The 'Bistro Steak & Eggs' and 'Chateau Versailles Brie & Tomato Pizza' gave us a brunch experience like no other.
And we are definitely coming back. Here's why:
- The Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert Menus are yet to be explored.
- The patio bistro, which gives a good view of Lake Ontario (and its passersby), is a perfect place to have a drink, now that we're experiencing this beautiful warm spring weather.
- Live Entertainment every Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights (from 9pm 'till close)!
Pepperwood Bistro is located at the heart of Burlington- in 1455 Lakeshore Road. The photo I used for this blog is credited to their website: http://www.pepperwood.on.ca/index2.html . I have a photo taken late winter/early spring... but their photo just better suits the upcoming summer!

For a busy downtown cafe, this place has ample cozy-comfy seating. And while other coffee shops offer cold sandwiches, Coffee Culture's hot ciabatta subs plus soup of the day makes this cafe all the more my personal choice for chilling, blogging, reading a good book, or meeting up over a good cup of hot choco (my favorite).
Coffee Culture (http://www.coffeeculture.ca/) is located in 390 Brant Street.

Along Lakeshore (corner Brant), The Big Sweet Candy Store will give you a trick or treat nostalgia. A few steps more and you're in front of RC's Boardwalk Fries & Ice Cream Parlour. You don't wanna skip through Crave though. They do serve good Gelato.
Turning right in Brant, Lakeview Pastry & Chocolates is impossible to miss. And right across it? You'll find Casteleyn Belgian Chocolates.

With their menu changing twice a year, the dining experience is Paradiso is something I look forward to when I crave for really good food. I remember ordering shrimp pasta in beer & tomato sauce in one visit, and pasta with blackend scallops the next. Good thing their 'Creme Brulee Trio' is the one thing constant in their menu on both occasions. The three creme brulee flavors satisty my sweet tooth in so many levels.
Paradiso Restaurant (http://www.paradisorestaurant.com/) is located in 2041 Pine St Burlington and 125 Lakeshore Rd E Oakville.

What I loved about my JeSpa experience was that they went beyond taking care of just my face. I was treated to hand, arm and shoulder massages while waiting for my organic facial mask to settle. Yes, the natural aroma enveloping the room was most likely from the organic Eminence products they use; which not only relieved me from any chemical stinging sensation, but smothered me in a smell so delicious I felt fresh and rejuvenated even long after my 90-minute session. With a good balance of pamper and skin treatment, this House of Beauty and Wellness is worth a second shot.
JeSpa House of Beauty and Wellness (http://www.jespa.ca/flash.htm) is located in 600 Brant Street. You can contact 905-6312951 to book your next 'me' time.
