If you celebrate Easter, hop to it: you have one more week to get your Easter Bunny act together.
If extremely special chocolate is what you’re after, we’re well acquainted with the spots our furry friend frequents in these parts. But we’d still like to give Stubbe a special mention after more rave reviews about their complex chocolate bunny castle, chocolate egg house (complete with Easter chick), and various truffle-filled, egg-shaped chocolate boxes.
Sugarplum Fairy Home Baking was a big hit with SavvyMom readers at Christmas, and has a new range of baked goods and packages for Easter, with free delivery to some areas. Specialties include paska (a Russian Mennonite Easter bread), Rolo cookies, lemon squares, seafoam chews, and an assortment of pies including frozen peanut butter, Acadian sugar and key lime. This year there will also be homemade Easter Cream Eggs: creamy white centres with a lemon-yellow “yolk” coated in milk chocolate and drizzled with dark chocolate for just $2 each. Order ahead (preferably by April 16).
If your egg hunt is ready to roll, you can move on to planning brunch. We forgot how much we love Stoneface Dolly’s on Preston Street, a place that will particularly suit gourmands who appreciate a chat with the always-friendly owner.
