Canadian Cuisine, Eh?
On a summer afternoon there’s nothing better than a nice lunch on the wooden deck that juts right into the millpond at Blue Mountain Village, watching kayaks gliding across the water, glittering in the August sun. On a winter’s day the fireplace inside is every bit as inviting.
Add a friendly and (downright) enthusiastic staff and a location that's a bit down the path from where most of the action is, and you’ve got a recipe for a great meal—Canadiana in a bright yellow building that looks for all the world like a lakeside cottage or a classic Ontario boathouse.
The menu is just as patriotic: think 11 different burgers (we Canadians don’t stand on ceremony much), complete with Miss Vickie’s potato chips. Nice touch that, given that they were first produced not far from here. But they've also gone further afield to offer a virtual pan-Canadian list of dishes. Think Saskatchewan shore dinner, PEI mussels, maple-infused Atlantic salmon.
Nice menu and ambiance. Eh?
