Toronto Elite Holiday Party at Madeleines

Posted by Vivek S

Ho, Ho, Holy Yelp-mas! Toronto's Elites savoured some yuletide flavour at the Elite Holiday Party at Madeleines. It was the perfect winter sendoff: the cookies were crumblin', the noshes were nibblin' and the drinks were most definitely flowin'.

  Ambiance

Held in boutique sweetshop Madeleines Cherry Pie and Ice Cream, Karen S was mesmerized by its uber-coziness. "Walking into the shop, I felt like I was getting a warm hug." That's Yelp love you're feeling!

Besides the delicious hors d'oeuvres, a trio of spiked holiday drinks kept festive yelpers well-oiled all evening. Lamb's Spiced Rum added a Santa-strength kick to the apple cider and Illy espresso, and you really can't beat a Bailey's Irish Cream and hot cocoa combo.

As a special treat, Elites got to perform feats of icing magic frosting and decorating gingerbread cookies to their hearts' content.

Payam Z noted this "family run establishment" really "captured that warm holiday feeling that puts a big smile on your face." It's true; owner Kyla and her brother Dustin never let the delicious treats and cocktails stop coming, while their mother Barb held down the fort in the kitchen.

A huge and gracious thanks to the rockstars at Madeleines, Lamb's Spiked Rum, Wendy H for her fabulous photography, and of course Toronto's Elite Squad for making this a kicking party. Happy Holidays!
