Getting away to Danforth

In step with the upcoming long weekend, I got to thinking about mini-getaways. What I've just recently realized, is that a getaway doesn't necessarily have to be a weekend trip to the Muskokas. A getaway can happen in the space of an hour - if only a mental getaway.

Although the weather has not exactly been up to par this month, there have been a few moments of blissfully uncloudy days where I've had the chance to hit up a neighbourhood patio for a lunchtime getaway. An escape into a great salad and glass of pinot with a great magazine can rejuvinate even the most overworked, BB obsessed workaholic.

Most recently, I hit up Melanie's Bistro (on Danforth at Glebemount) for some patio time and it was delightful. Sitting in the sun, and relaxing with a magazine was just what the doctor ordered. I scarfed down one of their famous Tandoori Wraps which just melted in my mouth. Simply delicious. As I headed back to the office, I felt like I had been on a vacation - even if it was only for an hour!

Here is the Toronto Life write up about Melanie's. Just as a side note, Melanie's does a great "salmon eggs benny" as well, so you don't even have to leave the neighbourhood for Sunday brunch. Bon appetit!
