Sarnia and surrounding area? There must be some places worth visiting!

I have family in the area so I have a few recs. For Salvatore's I really like their fresh pasta - usually stop there on my way back to Toronto and buy some. They have a little storefront next to the restaurant where you can buy pasta. The pasta needs to be eaten within about 3 days, so it's super fresh. I've eaten inside the restaurant - it's fine, but I prefer to take out.

Other recs - Albert's fries under the bridge are the best, but I believe they are open only seasonally and are likely closed until the spring.

Global Donuts have the BEST donuts - far superior to Tim Hortons. Go to the location on London Line.

And if you want a simple sandwich/soup lunch, my in-laws swear by the restaurant inside the gas station at The Leaky Tank, the gas station between Corunna and Sarnia. Cheap and cheerful.

Brown M&Ms or Smarties

Thanks for all your responses. I ended up going to bulk barn and found the Halloween Smarties that Chocolatemama referred to (just brown and orange). So to provide further proof (to myself) that I am a crazy bride, I proceeded to pick out all the orange Smarties so that I was only left with the brown ones. :-)

Brown M&Ms or Smarties

Thanks for the replies - I should provide some background. I actually already have some custom printed M&Ms from mymms.com (they're for wedding favours for my wedding this Saturday). Anyhow, when I put them into the little boxes that I got, it turns out that I didn't get enough custom M&Ms because the boxes look too empty...so I'm trying to supplement the boxes with regular M&Ms. My colours are brown and green. I thought I had remembered seeing "generic" brown M&Ms or smarties somewhere but can't remember where and now I haven't left myself much time :-( Booo!

Brown M&Ms or Smarties

Does anyone know where I can find brown-only M&Ms or Smarties or something similar?

I've called around to some candy stores (Sugar Mountain, Acme Candy) and a few locations of Bulk Barn and no one seems to have any.

Midi Bistro (March 08) - A pleasant find!

I work in the area and have tried both Bodega and Midi, but only for lunch. I much prefer Midi and it has become almost a weekly ritual for me! The quiche for lunch is absolutely amazing - I think the best I have ever had. Very light and fluffy with a melt-in-your-mouth crust. (note that sometimes they run out of certain types of quiche if you take a late lunch, so go early for the best selection) I also love that you can have both frites AND salad so there's no need to choose. I also tried the quiche at Bodega - it was ok, nothing special.
