The weather outside may be frightful, but the cozy temps and decor at our Shops at Don Mills restaurant has us feeling festive and warm, not least because of the lovely company we hosted over the past weekend! Scroll down to see what went down at our winter dessert brrrr-unch 😊

 

Season’s greetings from the cutest bear around

Our guests were welcomed with a Winter Mint milkshake served up in Lindt chocolate bears. 🐻 It may have gotten a tiny bit grisly towards the end for some of these bears, but it was a delicious treat for everyone else. What’s that saying again? One bear’s loss is another man’s gain? 

 

This wouldn’t be a brunch without some substantial dessert 👌

Ever had a matcha eggnog? You should! Perfectly balanced between the spices of eggnog and matcha flavour, these shots were a great holiday twist on the classic matcha latte. A big thank you to Genuine Tea for introducing us to the concept!
