Located in an obscure treed location on a hill on the extended campus of Western University is the Windermere Cafe. Situated in the same area is the Windermere Manor and boutique hotel.
The menu had a terrific cross section of food items including fish, chicken and my favourite a medium rare flat iron steak preceded by a tasty caesar salad. Deserts such as the sour cherry with a cake pastry and ice cream was smooth and flavourful. With any of the menu items one must also have the house special beer namely Honey Stung Ale. The honey is produced by the restaurants own apiary, visible from the eatery, and a local craft brewery blends the nectar into a unique tasting special brew.
With either family or friends, in our case it as the latter this time, the Windermere is a great
place to relax and socialize in a quiet and casual setting.

We had the flat iron steak as well as the orange and kiwi nut salad. Both were delicious and I would have been happy to order more food from the delicious-sounding menu! The "honey stung ale" was very nice, too.
Service was good and endlessly apologized (and didn't have us pay our drinks!) for being a little slow, because the venue was also booked for a wedding (or two?) at the same time. The atmosphere was very nice, relaxing and also romantic, with deer passing by at dusk and great live jazz music. Would love to come back here!

The food is great and you have the feeling you are in an outside patio area, even though it is inside. Service is excellent.
