Lemon Coocnut Macaroon Bar and A La Capresse Sandwich from Waves Coffee House

Happy Sunday! After a less-than-stellar lunch at Tim Hortons (we all have those days!), hubby and I decided to go to Waves Coffee House for a productive afternoon. With laptops in tow, we settled into the inviting ambiance, ready to conquer our to-do lists.

While hubby delved into his work, I channelled my post-lunch slump into creative energy. The rhythmic clatter of keyboards provided a satisfying soundtrack as I tackled writing tasks, including this blog post! But a productive afternoon deserves a little indulgence, right? Enter the lemon coconut macaroon bar.

This delightful treat was a symphony of textures and flavours. Imagine a smooth lemon filling, tart and refreshing, nestled on a bed of decadent shortbread crust. The crowning glory? A generous layer of crunchy toasted coconut adds a delightful textural contrast. It was the perfect pick-me-up, a burst of sweetness that fueled my writing without derailing my focus.

A couple of blissful hours flew by, filled with the comforting aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the gentle hum of conversation. But as the afternoon wore on, a different craving emerged – a savoury one. Waves' mouthwatering Caprese sandwich was calling my name. And who could resist?

The sandwich was a visual delight – vibrant pesto, fresh spinach, perfectly ripe tomato slices, and creamy bocconcini cheese piled high, all nestled between a buttery warm croissant. Each bite was a perfect marriage of textures and flavours: the soft bread yielding to the creamy cheese, the juicy tomato adding a touch of freshness, and the pesto pulling everything together.
