About
Homestyle Mennonite Buffet! Pebbles Family Buffet is a family owned business located in the small village of Varney ON, just south of Durham on Hwy 6. Take a break from the long hours of sitting as you ride to the cottage or ski resort. Enjoy the soft gospel music while you stuff yourself at our Homestyle Mennonite Buffet. Start by fixing yourself a salad just the way you like it, add a homemade roll with apple butter and a bowl of soup. Round two you can load up at the hot buffet and order something from our grill attendant. Finish with a delectable slice of our homemade pies or make yourself a soft ice-cream treat. Extend the enjoyment by taking a whole pie, homemade muffins, homemade butter

My husband and I live in PA and were visiting family in Ontario. They treated us to this delightful restaurant. We were very pleased with our experience. Regrettably due to the distance it may be a while before we have opportunity to return.

Always eat too much! After all, it is a Mennonite buffet. Breasted chicken and salads fixings are great. Wish it was closer, but on the other hand, probably a good thing it isn’t.
