RESTAURANT REVIEW - Mamma's Pizza, Toronto, Ontario, Canada (and Hedgehogs On The Beach)
After visiting Niagra Falls (and narrowly avoiding an international incident involving Buttercup and a barrel), April and the Hedgehogs proceeded to April's cousin's house in Toronto. After successfuly navigating the World of Metric Measurements, they made it to their destination safely. April's cousin and her husband were eager to show the travelers around the gorgeous neighborhood where they live part-time (the rest of the time, they're Austinites as well!)
A stroll down Queen's Street had April ooh-ing and aah-ing over the architecture, neat shops, and plentiful vegan food options. (April wanted to try this place while she was there, but didn't get the chance.) A dinner decision was made when the group was greeted with this tempting sign -
2118 Queen Street East (Beaches) Toronto, Ontario, Canada (Many other locations)
The group decided to get a large pizza, half of which would be Vegan Olive Press (Olive Oil, Roasted Potatoes, Roasted Red Peppers, Eggplant, Broccoli, Garlic and Oregano). Mamma's also offers two other fancy vegan pizzas that feature Daiya cheese.
While waiting for the pizza to be ready, Hedgie and Buttercup indulged in some window shopping -
When the pizza was ready, the group strolled back to April's cousin's house. It's so nice to be able to walk everywhere! The pizza was really delicious (though April is a sucker for potatos on pizza, so it was an easy sell), and a good value for the money.
After dinner, everyone decided to go for a walk on the nearby beach.
For the rest of the week, April meant to get more sight-seeing, but ended up spending most of the time indoors hand-embroidering and hand-sewing the banner for her solo music act, which had to be completed before she got to GenCon.
Luckily, the banner was finished in time, and the last day in Toronto was dedicated to sight-seeing and eating.
