Todrics Fine Dining is a well-hidden gem in Eastview

Todrics House Cabernet Sauvignon

You probably shouldn’t judge Todric’s by its exterior! Now I’ll state at the outset that Todric’s isn’t cheap but the food that you’ll get is top of the heap! I would have picked lamb 3 ways cause that is my habit But instead the Spring menu change offers 3 ways of Rabbit So, I guess …

Donut Display

Donut whine when you dine at Tim Hortons When you go to any Timmies, you shouldn’t be whining You know from the outset that it isn’t fine dining But the doughnuts are fresh and the coffee is hot Their breakfasts and lunches won’t cost you a lot If you offer to treat me, I won’t …
