Given how tomorrow marks August’s Pedestrian Sunday in Kensington Market, I thought it would be super appropriate to crank out my posts on Wanda’s Pie in the Sky and a new scrapbook layout to go with it! I love Pedestrian Sundays and I only wish Sundays were a little more convenient for me transportation-wise because if they were, you can bet I’d make it to the market for this at the end of every month! In a nutshell, the last Sunday of every month from May to October is Pedestrian Sunday. The roads are completely blocked off in Kensington to motor traffic so you can skip and twirl in the middle of the streets with your delicious food and cute purchases swinging about to your heart’s content. There’s often live music out on the streets, vendors and shop owners bring out all their wares, and there’s always some really cute activity happening in the market. Case in point: giant, larger-than-life Scrabble on the street with square foot tiles! Anyone who hasn’t been should skip on over, stat! And while you’re there, check out Wanda’s Pie in the Sky.
Wanda’s Pie in the Sky is one of my favourite spots in Kensington and for the longest time, I always thought it was a dessert place exclusively selling pies, cakes, and the like. I was so wrong. And I don’t often say this, but I’m so happy I was wrong. Wanda’s is, quite possibly, one of the BEST lunch spots in the city for a lunch date and I say this not only because of the sheer volume of food available, but also because Wanda’s is vegetarian and vegan-friendly, which makes it PERFECT for carnies and veggies alike.
I was gobsmacked when I walked in and discovered just how much delicious food was inside those pastel brick walls. Pasta salads, vegetarian sandwiches, soups, pizza flatbreads, quiche pies, vegan cupcakes, soft-serve ice cream, cookies, macarons, tarts, cakes, and yes, lots and lots of PIE! It is incredible and because I like to tease you all, this is a teaser post to tide you over until tomorrow’s big fat Part II, complete with scrapbook layout and the prettiest, coolest, most awesomet cake you’ll ever lay your eyes – and possibly teeth – on. Hint: look at my header image 😉 Enjoy!
