I was so good in March when I barely bought anything. Then my younger sister started telling me about how she's feeling "spend-y" and that just opened up a can of worms for me :S I'll definitely be scaling back this month to get myself back on track.
Read about Day 1 and Day 2 of our week long trip to Montreal back in August 2014.

We strive to give you the best possible food quality and service while maintaining a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Welcome to what we call 'le cirque des œufs,' an all-day experience."
So on Day 3, Wednesday, we headed out to eat breakfast at Eggspectation- one of our favourite breakfast spots!
The food at this location was okay, and so was the service- nothing spectacular. But, I can't believe they forgot my bacon. Too bad since we really looked forward to this place.
Overall: Ambience C, Food B, Service B-.
Back then we used one-time use cameras and I bought rock candies from a candy store since I couldn't find anything I wanted. In a desperate attempt to get something to remember my trip by, I bought a TY beanie cat that I still have to this day. The rock candy was straight up sugar and it didn't taste like much of anything. I guess when you're a kid, sweet things taste very different. I remember dreaming of having a bowl of sugar or condensed milk for breakfast when I was little.

Taken from the site: "Jeff Dichter and Steve Belitzky, having sold their manufacturing business, were looking for an adventure. While Jeff was on the corporate committee of the Montreal Children Hospital foundation, he was instrumental in putting together the "7" charity dinner (featuring 7 courses prepared by 7 chefs), a $5,000-a-plate event held at Moishe's. The event raised $500,000 in 2005.
This event turned their attention to another possible venue for fundraising: a burger bar. A percentage of all restaurant sales would be donated to Montreal Childrens Charities. They developed, redeveloped, refined and changed concepts and plans for the new venture. They went on several tasting trips – New York, Las Vegas and anywhere they tracked down a rumour or great burgers. Every burger joint in Montreal was sampled."
For dinner we chose to eat at m:brgr. I read in my travel guidebook that this place makes some really good burgers so I wanted to check it out while we were in Montreal.
The food was so good. I loved my burger- it was savoury, tender, and very juicy. As I already mentioned, the French Fried Onions were really good, and my milkshake was very yummy as well. Service was good too and hopefully so when it's actually busy. The place was modern looking with a mural running along the walls, they also had a bar too.
Overall: Ambience: A-, Food A+, Service A.
Phew! That was the longest Montreal post yet! We tried to cram in as much as we can on the third day because it was the middle of the week and I wanted to do everything. It literally took me forever to do this post so I hope you at least enjoyed.
