On our final night in Jasper we looked at the weather before deciding where to go and eat: -45 degrees. Again. It was the standard temperature for our week. We decided to pick something nearby so we wouldn’t have to freeze. Cassio’s Italian Restaurant is attached to the Whistler’s Inn, where we were staying. We didn’t even have to put on our coats. Decision made.
Cassio’s is known for its hearty breakfasts and dinners serving authentic Italian cuisine. The original Cassio’s started in Sudbury, Ontario – a northern community known for nickel mining in its day. I’m from an even smaller town about 3 hours north of Sudbury that nobody’s ever heard about. In Northern Ontario terms: Cassio’s and I were neighbours.
