Tea and Crepes at Cafe Cristal…

Hey y’all

I’m visiting Ottawa  for the Thanksgiving season and my cousins and I decided to go and grab a bite to eat.  They mentioned to me about a great place to get amazing crepes- Cafe Cristal. So off we went!


At first glance, when you pull into the parking lot and see the sign, it seems like just your regular run of the mill mom and pop hipster spot. But folks, this place is so much more. As I entered the building, I was immediately transfixed by the sheer elegance of the place. Beautiful floral arrangements, elegant mirrors, very classic furnishings. It was cozy enough to feel like I was in my own home yet opulent enough to feel like a classy cafe in Paris.



Now let’s talk about the food. I chose to try out the French Toast crepe. The sweet taste of the French toast was mirrored by the savoury taste of 3 scrambled eggs. I wasn’t positive I was going to like it but I was pleasantly surprised! The crepe was light and fluffy and extremely filling. I paired my meal with a large cup of Earl Grey Tea which complimented my meal choice perfectly.


If you are not in the mood for crepes, Cafe Cristal offers many other food options such as waffles, a variety of desserts, sandwiches and a plethora of other cold and hot drinks. Cafe Cristal also offers… wait for it…. free wifi! ( LOL) which makes this place a great spot to bring your laptop to and get some work done.


If you are ever in the Ottawa, Ontario area, get yourself over to Cafe Cristal.- you will not be disappointed .

Til next time…

Whether you have a relationship with Jesus or not, there is always something or someone to be grateful for! So( to all my Canadian readers) have a very happy and blessed holiday season! For everyone who isn’t celebrating Thanksgiving today, may your Monday be filled with love and laughter !


A Thanksgiving Prayer

Dear God,
Thank you for sending your son to die on a cross for someone as insignificant as me
Thank you for sacrificing the most important thing to you, so that I might have a chance to live a life of freedom
Thank you for my family. I am blessed to have been granted such a supportive, God-fearing family who instilled good values in me,
Thank you for restoring health to my father. Although he is not yet out of the woods, he has come a long way and ‘m grateful.
Thank you for freedom! Freedom to vote( I did today!), freedom to worship!
Thank you for employment. I am grateful for the opportunity you have given me to make a substantial life for myself and in return use my finances to help and bless others.
Thank you for always coming through for me when I couldn’t see the answer for myself.
Thank you for putting good people in my life who have guided me, stood beside and supported me in every facet of my life.
Thank you for the hard times, They have humbled me and reminded me to never lose focus.
Thank you for love!
Thank you for LIFE ❤
I’m forever grateful! For the good times and the bad times. For the happy times and the sad times. As this thanksgiving season comes to a close, I pray that everyone will have an opportunity to experience you and know you the way I do!


Thanksgiving (1)

This what I’m jamming on today!

(Thank You, Lord, for loving me)
(Thank You, Lord, for keeping me)
(Thank You, Lord, for that day You came)
(And broke the chains and set me free)

Thank You for another chance)
You gave me joy now I can dance
All the people open up Your mouth
And let me here you say thank You, thank You
(Thank You, thank You)

(Thank You, Lord for one more day)
(You made the raindrops go away)
(Thank You, cause my pain is gone)
(I know it came to make me strong)

(Thank You for another chance)
(You gave me joy now I can dance)
All the people open up your mouth
And let me here you say thank You, thank You)
(Thank You, thank You)
