Always amazing!

Hands down the best place in town for a gourmet breakfast! Fresh and local grown ingredients are prepared fresh for you. Sit at the bar area if you can and watch the chef create your yumminess!

It is a simple,unassuming place. Superb food. Kind and gentle service. Only improvement recommended: the ground lamb sandwich be contained in a sturdier form of bread. It got pretty messy. A delicious sort of messy.

Always an amazing culinary experience. Chef Rob makes the best breakfast in town. Not for the everyday - save this one for a special treat. Eggs, bacon, geurnsey girl cheese from Upper Canada Cheese company, all perfectly cooked.

After working about 2 km away for years, I never even knew this restaurant existed! Finally went last month and now I've been twice. Every part of the meal from the corn bread to the coffee was top notch, and I pretty much wanted to order the entire menu. I had the mushroom omelette the first time and salmon the... More

We were two, doing a road trip in Ontario mid of May this year. The place was recommanded to us. We went in this tiny place along the road and felt immediately seduced by the warm atmosphere ( nice paintings on the walls, open kitchen and smiling people). Hopefully it was during the week so it was not crowded. The... More

The Bleu Turtle does a wonderful brunch/lunch using fresh, local ingredients. My recommendation is that you make reservations because the dining area is small and fills up quickly.

We have been here several times and enjoy splurging on Bleu Bistro. It is always busy, and has excellent food. The restaurant is rather small, and has a modern updated diner decor and open-concept kitchen. This time, we had smoked salmon with mango salsa, and the crab cake - both were served on fresh and moist cornbread (finely ground, more... More

Very small, so try to get a reservation. Everything on the menu is very well-prepared and has a unique twist that warrants attention. Great place for breakfast or brunch and is locally owned and operated. This bistro-type restaurant has amazing staff and is always bustling with customers. Must try!

Blue Turtle has home made bread for sale and is it ever good. As well, the cozy café has a realy fine menu using locally sourced items, and unique foods such as boar sausages. highly recommended.
