There is great food in this local restaurant. They also have a good selection of local foods available for purchase, as well as 10,000 Villages items. To top it off, during the growing season, the garden shop is just out the back door.

You can always count on getting a great bowl of homemade soup and a great sandwich here. Also many dinner entrees that are different with a austrian/european flare to it. Had a meatball dinner one time and it was fabulous. They also have a great...More

This is the sort of place that operates with a social conscience. It prefers fair-trade and sustainable products and prepares them to order. The Smorgasbord is really the opposite of the chain dispensaries that promote factory foods of uncertain origin and commit more dollars to...More

A great place to relax over an extremely healthy soup and sandwich. The coffee is bottomless and dark roast. Superb. Great Danish "Friggers" on Fridays.

The Smorgasbord Deli is famous for its delicious homemade soups, salads and sandwiches which are made daily from scratch - no flavour enhancers, preservatives or other additives here. Local produce is used when it is in season which adds to the freshness and flavour. Baked goods such as muffins, cheese biscuits, cookies, squares and cake are created with love by the Deli Dames and the unforgettable bread comes from the Lac La Hache Bakery. Coffees and teas are fair trade and dairy products are local wherever possible. The best part, however, is that in the summer you can have your lunch out in the Garden Centre with the sights, sounds, and smells of flowers and shrubs. Enjoy! Catering is also on the menu of the Smorgasbord - not only for lunches and snacks but also for bigger get-togethers such as weddings and other receptions. Their soups, salads and sandwiches are available for take-out lunches and the creativity of the Deli-Dames is unsurpassed when it comes to variety - from organic bison crepes to a turkey dinner with all the trimmings to baklava, they do it all. It is truly a unique experience to enter the world of the Smorgasbord.
