Red Hats Outing

On a beautiful Autumn day  my Red Hats group  dined at The Manse Restaurant.

As the name  indicated the house built in 1870, a Manse for at that time the Methodist  church later  the home for the United Church minister until  the  1990's. Then became a private home for   15 years . For the last  7 years  a  casual fine dining  restaurant......
The  main floor interior has been divided into  3 dining rooms, 2 rooms had fireplaces , all  rooms retaining Victorian  touches. Art   showing local   areas...... Tables set  with  crisp linen.......
In the  turret is a small dining room  for  2 or 4, very romantic  setting.
We had a small room to ourselves on the main floor with large bay window..

Needless to say the   food and wine  was delicious ,   I  enjoyed a pasta dish, others had fish and some chicken  wraps.. ... but what I really wanted to show was the  desserts..
 Vanilla Bean Cream Brulee

Love the touches of   fruit, mint and chocolate
 Swiss  cheesecake  crepes

I want to try making these crepes filled with cheesecake.
 It was a relaxed,  elegant  luncheon ....... wonderful way to spend a sunny  Autumn afternoon..

I love eating at places like this, such great ambiance. I like the cute little red flowers a couple of the ladies are wearing, I am not a hat person myself. xo
