Cottage country pit stop
Family run restaurants are getting harder to come by in Ontario's cottage country -especially ones with good, tasty, homemade food. Halfway between Ottawa and Toronto
(via Hwy 7) is Bailey's Cafe in the small town of Marmora. The place was busy when we were there, but we were told it was slower than usual due to most of the town being at a memorial service. Friendly staff, fresh coleslaw, standard Western fare and some really amazing pie (their coconut cream pie was a favourite with a coconut cream pie aficionado).
