Friendship and Fresh Donuts at Little Nicky’s Coffee Shop

What more can one ask for in a winter-time coffee date, than a nice cup of something hot, some freshly made mini donuts and a good friend to share them with?

Julie and I got together for just that recently, at a place neither of us had been before, Little Nicky's Coffee on Queen Street West, at Peter Street (directly south of The Gap that's on the corner there).

I had a latte and Julie chose a London Fog. If you're like me and were unfamiliar with this drink, it is Earl Grey tea, steeped with a touch of lavender, served with steamed milk and a bit of vanilla, and sugar if you want it. Julie let me taste hers and it is delicious.

We also shared a dozen of their mini donuts, dusted with cinnamon and powdered sugar, that were so fresh that we saw them coming down the conveyor-belt of their cool donut making machine.

Julie had a knitting deadline to meet -- I laughed out loud when she told me that, but it makes sense since she is the creator of one of Canada's most popular knitting blogs, Knitted Bliss -- so she worked on her mitten as we chatted.

It was a pretty perfect lady-date, for sure!

Thanks for taking a look. I hope you have a great weekend.
