Le Vent se Lève

07:26



Hidden in the corner of a neighborhood of homes lays Union Street Kitchen Cafe with chalk-coloured brick walls and patio chairs. If anything, it felt more like a home than a cafe. We were welcomed in by a retriever sitting along the entrance. The mish mash of monochrome decor and magnetic letters, suspended plants, colourful paintings, created a one-of-a-kind ambiance which felt nothing less than cozy.

In these photos, I wore a white turtle neck, denim skirt, mesh tights and boots. It's the time of the year where you either see people outside with shorts or coats, so nothing wrong with dressing a little in between. My denim skirt I purchased online a year ago and haven't worn it enough, mainly because the waist is a size too big for me. But tucking in a turtleneck, with a shirt under, it fit enough to seem high-waisted. 

For a place with such limited seating, I did not expect there to be a line up of customers. Luckily, my friend and I grabbed an iced latte and caramel pecan brownie in time to reserve a seat. The caramel pecan brownie was the last left on the counter display and was served to me as is. I wasn't impressed by the stale texture, but with the ingredients it had potential. Service was friendly, but slow because of how busy the cafe was on such a lovely day. Overall, I'd say it was worth the visit for the ambiance.
