We discovered this little gem last year when we visited Stratford. This year we knew we would not miss it. It's on Erie Street, right in the middle of town. There is eat-in or take-out and also has a lovely patio right by the sidewalk garden where they grow their herbs.
The food is about as fresh as you would ever want. They have wonderful sandwiches and wraps. My experience has been with the chicken salad sandwich which is packed generously with chicken and has the most wonderful flavour. My husband gets the vegetarian wraps which he loves. Salads are sold by weight and what we like to do is get a plate to share. We get a little bit of everything! The asparagus spears are fabulous! Actually, all of the salads are great.
They also have a selection of food which you choose from a glassed-in counter and these are the foods they will heat up. You must not miss the potato pancakes!!!!! Unfortunately I have not been able to sample everything there but I know they have chicken breasts and salmon, in addition to lots of things I have forgotten.
Dessert? Oh yeah! The pecan squares are essential to your well-being, trust me! Ambrosia! I can also highly recommend the chocolate-cheesecake brownie. Chewy chewy chewy!!!
The staff is very friendly and helpful!
They source their food and beer from local suppliers and the list of these suppliers is on a chalkboard over the door (on the inside of the restaurant). I think they also have wine.
You can also have a picnic packed in one of their pails so you can go off to your favorite spot along the Avon and relax.
One thing I would suggest to this already-perfect eatery is to consider the use of tofu for vegetarians. It is not always easy to get protein in restaurants if you are vegetarian. Looking at the menu, we realized that many of the sandwiches and wraps could be vegetarian (with protein) by removing the meat and substituting grilled slices of tofu.
We are already looking forward to visiting this restaurant again next summer!
