Omelet Deals in Ottawa
While the countryside evokes images of rolling hills and sparse décor, a true pastoral Shangri-La combines rustic tranquility with urban sophistication. Strike the right balance of both with this week's Escape to the historic Glenerin Inn and Spa in Mississauga, Ontario, just 30 minutes from downtown Toronto. The Glenerin is nestled in the gorgeous Credit River Valley area and considered one of the city's architectural gems. Savor a blend of tasteful simplicity and upscale service when you and a guest spend one night in a traditional room ($99). Or, opt for the same stay with an included three-course prix-fixe dinner for two ($159). No matter which option you choose, you'll each receive an à la carte breakfast in the morning. Once part of a Toronto businessman's country estate, the inn boasts luxurious guest rooms that exude bucolic charm. Crisp white linens make your bed the perfect place to unwind, while signature bath amenities, cable television, and complimentary Wi-Fi provide all the comfort and convenience you could ask for. You'll start your day with a refreshing spread of morning eats from your included à la carte breakfast. Sip on coffee or tea before crafting your own omelet, or sample a selection of muffins, pastries, or croissants. And there's no lovelier breakfast backdrop than the inn's patio overlooking the Sawmill Valley Waterfall. Beyond the property, you can take a leisurely stroll or bike ride on the Sawmill Trail as it winds along the tributaries of the Credit River. Or, for those seeking a sample of modern artistry, the Living Arts Center of Mississauga offers two main performance arts venues, studio spaces, and exhibition display areas. The Spa at Glenerin Inn awaits after a long day of activity. Relax and release tension when you purchase an aromatherapy massage, or pamper your skin with a vitamin C facial. Once you're ready for dinner, you can grab a table for two at the on-site restaurant, serving savory and sweet culinary creations made from farm-fresh local ingredients. The prix-fixe meal includes an appetizer, entrée, and dessert course to please your palate. Flock to the countryside without skimping on city comforts—on this week's Escape, natural serenity and worldly refinement go hand in hand.
Fished from Newfoundland waters, these mouthwatering marine crustaceans beg to be served at a backyard gathering. Each rectangular case contains an average of 15 wild-caught, whole, cooked and frozen Canadian lobsters. Defrost and give them a boil to heat them up, then crack away. The meat can also be pulled out and used in other lobster recipes - save leftovers (if any) for bisques, rolls and upscale omelets.
