See that smile on Mark’s face? I’ll bet you a dollar that if you went into Tall Poppy today, you’d see that smile. In fact, for all the years I’ve known Mark, I’ve never seen his face without it. Yes, we have great coffee and great food and a beautiful room in which to serve it, but that smile is another reason why it’s nice to hang out at the café.

Blog excerpt:

Uh huh. Mark’s been food shopping again. A trip to the Asian markets in Toronto this week inspired him to pick up a case of Hachiya persimmons, on the right in the photo above. My one and only experience with persimmons – known among foodies as the “Fruit of the Gods” – ended badly. Expecting a mouthful of sweet, juicy flesh, instead my lips puckered and all the moisture got sucked out. I know now that the persimmon in question was not yet ready for eating – Hachiya persimmons have to appear almost over-ripe to get the juice. There’s a nice food blog that talks about them here. And Mark’s incorporated them into today’s muffin if you’re game to try them.

Opening Day!

Published by

We thought that 55 on 5/5 was as auspicious an occasion as any. Tall Poppy owner Mark Walters celebrates his birthday on our Opening Day (we checked the Chinese numerology and it’s all good). Drop in and say hello, and grab a cup of the best coffee in town while you’re there.
