Exalte Le Salon, Edmonton, Alberta

When we were in Edmonton for a family wedding, I had a hair appointment at this Salon. https://plus.google.com/103136542946204961035/about?gl=ca&hl=en#103136542946204961035/about?gl=ca&hl=en

Every Beauty Salon should read this and pay attention. The cost for a wash and blow dry was only $31.50 BUT with that you get:

1. they ask if you would like a head massage – take it! It is fabulous.

2. A young lady comes over and (after asking if you want this) a hand masssage. All the while,  your hairdresser is working on your hair.

3.  When finished, your hairdresser asks if you would like a neck/shoulder massage – again , take it!

These little extras do two things.

1. A happier, very relaxed  customer

2. Larger gratuity

Oh, I forgot, they also offer coffee, water, juice.

If I lived i n Edmonton, they would have a regular customer in me. I found them to be amazing artists, charming shop and the neatest French accents around.

White Spot Restaurant, Penticton,B.c.

This was our first visit tothe ‘new’ White Spot since they rebuilt after a devastating fire. Of course, it was new, bright and clean. Being greeted at the front door with a beautiful smile on the hostess always makes the visit a pleasurable beginning. https://www.whitespot.ca/location/penticton

Our server, Angela, was a bright light to be sure. Happy, not annoyingly perky, and quick with coffee and also the food. Joking aside she was fun to have on our side.

Don ordered the 2 egg, bacon and shredded hash browns with toast and I, of course, ordered the buttermilk waffle with maple syrup and bacon. I say ‘of course’ because that is all I ever order in any establishment that has it on the menu.

Don loved his breakfast and said they have one of  THE  best  breakfasts in any restaurant.  I had to tell Angela about the waffle. Without a word of a lie, it is the best waffle I have been served in any restaurant in Canada. We were comparing it to the waffles we had in Belgium it was that good.

All in all, it was  a great beginning to a Sunday. Be sure to stop in here people, it was great.
