  • Try the new Delavoye Chocolate (10639 124 St.)

    • Thanks to subscriber Kathleen for sending in this recommendation!

      • Delavoye Chocolate has opened up in the refurbished old brick building on the SE corner of 124 Street and 107 Ave. This place is amazing. The hot chocolate and the European chocolate drinks are out of this world delicious. They roast their own cocoa beans and make delectable bars of chocolate with different intensities of cocoa butter. Great atmosphere. Wonderful place run by lovely people with top quality product!”

  • Head out to Nonnie’s Grill (2 22106 South Cooking Lake Rd, / Sherwood Park)

    • Thanks to Facebook follower Angela for sending in this recommendation—looks like a rural restaurant south of Sherwood Park at risk of closure…

      • “Would you consider visiting Nonnie’s Grill & Artisan Shop? I saw they are trying to raise donations and are now opening on Sundays to stay afloat. I read the bio and she invested her retirement savings into this venture and wants to give back to the community as well. I want to try their cinnamon buns that are only available on Sundays!” Note: I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t vouch for it but wanted to share as an option!

  • Go for some BACON from Tzin (10115 104 St.)
