Rising Above

I'm adjusting to life in the city.

There are some perks.

For example,

North Pelham had a feed mill for animals

whereas the city offers a variety

of feed mills for humans.

One such establishment is the


Rise Above Bakery & Catering

which is also a vegan restaurant

in downtown St. Catharines.

I was quite impressed by the local artwork on display.

The picture of a  rifle bearing hunter

in a vegan restaurant really got my attention. 

And the food was great.

Potato, beet salad.

Very yum.

The chili was excellent.

I didn't think I'd be able to finish it but

holy cow

oops, I mean

holy red kidney beans

I gobbled it all up in no time!

These men were kind enough to let me take their picture

  but they wouldn't share their soup and sandwiches .

Just goes to show you how cold the concrete jungle can be, eh?

But most vegans just want to have fun.

And a lot of their fun seems to centre around dessert.

I had part of a raspberry something.

Totally Orgasmic!

This young waiter is trying to get me interested in the freshly baked bread.

(Like I'm thinking bread when I can see the dessert counter.)

Lunch was less than $10

and it was tasty and filling without being heavy .

So if you live in Niagara

or are just passing through

grab a bite at the

Rise Above Bakery and Catering

120 St. Paul St., St. Catharines, Ont.


Tell them Francie sent you. 

They'll wonder who the hell Francie is

but you won't be sorry you stopped in.
