If you haven’t been to Mitsu Sweet Café, you need to! I had one of the best lunches there and I would like to share my experience with you.
Walking into Mitsu you know you are in for something special. The décor sets a comfortable and relaxing tone but it’s the little design touches that really stick out. From the 3 chandeliers that hang around the front of the restaurant to the large cherry blossom covered ceiling, it’s easy to see a lot of care and attention went in to arranging this space.
What originally started as a Japanese dessert café has now grown into a full service sushi restaurant. They have everything from Nigiri to Sashimi and any kind of roll you could possibly want. Mitsu also has a full service coffee bar and I strongly recommend the London Fog. If you are heading here for a night out they are also licensed and have a large assortment of Sake and other Japanese specialty drinks.
I ordered the Pumpkin Coconut Soup and Tempura Vegetables and Jacki got herself the Shrimp Bento Box. I would go as far as saying that you must try the sweet potato tempura if you are ever at Mitsu. It was perfectly crunchy and when dipped in soya sauce, the mixture of sweet and salty was beyond delicious.
No good meal is complete without dessert, we asked our server what their specialty is and she suggested we try one of the crepes. She brought us this perfect cone shaped crepe stuffed with chocolate, ice cream and fresh raspberries; it was truly heaven on a plate!
I can say without a doubt that the lovely young woman that served us made our experience even better. She was friendly and attentive and took excellent care of us. The service, décor and overall cleanliness of this restaurant are top notch.
I would also like to mention that the Saskatchewan Festival of Words hold their Performers Café here. It is an excellent place to get your favourite beverage and enjoy some live music. Look for Annie MacLeod on January 31st and Shayna Stock on February 28th.
If you are looking for something fun and unique to try, visit Mitsu Sweet Café!
See you around,
