The next stop on our road towards enlightenment is Museo at the Mendel Art Gallery. This café may seem a little bit off of the beaten path, but it’s our lunch hour, and we’ll play fast and loose with it if we want to. We do. That’s the whole idea; eat at every single place and uncover a few hidden gems along the way.
Panini with Edible (?) Berries and Assorted Teas:
Artichoke Heart Panino:
Pizza Panino with a Fancy Name:
Though it’s not very visually interesting, there’s spinach and chicken and some other stuff in there. It tasted pretty good with the Jasmine Green Tea we got.
Our decisions were Panini heavy today, though an assortment of soups and salads were also available. Everyone was pleasantly surprised with Museo’s viability as a regular stop in a downtown lunch rotation. It’s not as remote as you might assume—it’s an easy walk from our base, just in a direction we’re not used to going.
The food and drinks were ready right away, allowing time for a nice stroll down the Meewasin Valley Trail or browsing the gallery, if you’re into that sort of thing.
If you’ve been craving one of those coffees that you’ve seen all over the internet with the designs drawn on top, search no more. We’ll get back to you on whether or not those berries were intended for eating.
Performance Artists or Repair Crew?
Shout out to whoever decided to smash a giant, expensive-looking window in order to steal the Mendel’s donation box: You’re a credit to the community. This may or may not have been an avant garde performance that went over our heads.
