Rachel’s is very much the 1950’s diner set in the midst of a second hand store with a bakery on the side. The sandwiches and hot lunches are very good and the baked goods are excellent. Local beers, reasonable prices and nostalgia...where else are you...More

This place is so much more than a bakery! By far the best food in town. We were here twice - dinner and breakfast. They had live music for dinner and it was lovely. Great service and good food.

Website given is part of Explore the Bruce please do not publish as 'their site' as it is not, this is merely for verification that it exists. This establishment has been open for three months. Lion's Head does have a fair choice of B&B's but not a great selection of fabulous food. Please add to listing I would like to add a review. Home Made EVERYTHING. Phone for them is 519-793-3982 . Trip advisor visitors would appreciate. Thanks, Carolyn
