Delysees has been the talk of the town with my foodie friends. With so much buzz and temptation of macarons, I decided I had to pay a visit! Walking in, the decor is definitely contemporary – lots of glass, white … Continue reading
Interview with founder of Bite Bar, Nisha Amin-Agnihotri (pictured above). I was initially invited to the media opening party but with foodie tears had to decline because I wasn’t feeling well. Darn immune system! Fortunately, through Devon MacDonald and Meg Sethi … Continue reading

MoRoCo, is a Yorkville boutique that sells chocolate confections and desserts. As expected, MoRoCo lives up to the luxury expectations of a Yorkville boutique and costs for desserts are expensive. They have a lounge area that I am very curious to dine in, it is decorated with purple, white and black furnishings. The walls are painted dark purple. Very pretty.
MoRoCo’s lounge only has a menu’s for afternoon tea, brunch, a la carte and cocktails. It’s not a place to eat dinner but to have lunches and drinks. The most substantial item on the menu is steak & eggs (2 eggs w/ AAA centre cut striploin) and it costs $21.
I find things here to be very expensive but people are probably attracted to it because they want the experience. I have only ordered their macaroons, I think it was 4 for $10 – that’s $2.50 per macaroon. They tasted alright, much more chewy then ones at The Sweet Escape Pastisserie. While, hot chocolate…REAL hot chocolate costs around $7-8. I would probably go here to take a break from shopping with my friends or to have a little afternoon tea.
