The name De Farine Et D’Eau Fraiche translates to ‘Flour and Fresh Water’ and is an apt name for a lovely café located in the gay village of Montreal.  The overall design is by studio Surface3 – including the branding, interior design,  and  custom furniture.  Surface3 has synthesized a modern yet cozy vibe, by combining organic elements: distressed wood tables, with the logo tattooed on it’s surfaces, and hanging white gloss lathed table leg light fixtures.  The use of  general frieze molding as wall coverings continues the classic materials used in new ways.

Pastry chef Marilu Gunji is a queen of the aesthetics. All the cookies, cakes, pastries and candies are visually seductive.  Everything is carefully displayed; the refrigerated cases with their vintage cake stands and on glass urns – with all the pretty pastries on coordinated doilies.  The kitchen is open and visible to customers and adds to the impeccable feel.

The De Farine Et D’Eau Fraiche also serves crispy salads, savory soups and sandwiches.  Most importantly, you can accompany your sweets with a good cup of coffee.  Chef Marilu Gunji also creates just the cutest mini wedding cakes!

Hitting the three high points of design hotels – Style, Service and Comfort – the Morgan Hotel Group’s Mondrian South Beach is the perfect stay in this glam destination.

The style is obvious.  It is just over the top enough – simultaneously besting the local glitz, but still retaining a touch of class.  The photos speak for themselves.

The service was sincere, kind and attentive.  From our first impression with the parking attendant to our check-out; each person we interacted with placed our needs at the forefront.  Moving about the property was easy as the staff was there to guide and advise; as oppose to monitor which gives many other hotels a slightly oppressive feeling.

Comfort is our third pillar – and when one realizes it is really a combination of the first two; we are not surprised to find it at the Mondrian.  Our room 405 was especially ample – a standard that had the dimensions of a suite.  Opening the door, one just felt lucky – and that is never a bad way to start a holiday!  The bed was a good sleep, the bathroom luxurious and the room one you could live in (well – us  New Yorker’s with small apartments, anyways!)

There are a few other nice details:  One being that the Mondrian is located off the beachfront so you are not suffocated by the hub-ub, but it is close at hand.  We also were happy to discover that the Whole Food was located just around the corner; making beach picnics an easy go!

We are looking forward to our next stay and highly recommend the Mondrian if your travels take you to Miami’s South Beach.

One of the benefits of the modern globalized world is increased trade and specialization.  The apex of this may be TA-ZE.  This olive-oil boutique – yes you read that correctly -is not very easy to find, but worth the search.

Buried on an underground path, one finds a plethora of premium Turkish olive oils from the Aegean provinces.  A dazzling array produced by 33 union affiliated co-operatives equaling 28,000 distinct olive producers.

The beautful store concept by Toronto-based interior design firm Burdifilek, is a lovely and tasty visit.

To answer your question .. yes, of course they have flavored balsamic vinegars as well!

OPEN HOURS:
7:00am –  Dusk

The Yeni Cami or Valide SultanMosque was ordered in in 1597 by the Sultana Safiye, wife of Sultan Murad III, and later Valide Sultan (Queen Mother) of Sultan Mehmed III.

After 1603, the partially constructed structure gradually fell into ruins; and was severely damaged during the Great Fire of Istanbul.  In order to cover costs of restoration and upkeep, the nearby Spice Bazaar was created.

With 66 domes and semi domes in a pyramidal arrangement, the New Mosque dominates the skyline as you approach via ferry.  Although it is not as high up on the tourist list as the Blue Mosque; Yeni Cami holds a more peaceful and mystic aura.
