For many area visitors, a trip to Kleinburg is a must-do, an excursion complete with a bit of culture and a stroll down a street that time seems to have forgotten.
But there’s a caveat here—visiting Kleinburg without doing a meal at the Doctor’s House is the gustatory equivalent of doing Paris without the Eiffel Tower. In short: don’t even think about it.
You have two options—both of which are great ideas. Dinner for two—a romantic tete-a-tete in a historic setting (its no wonder that summer weddings here are ubiquitous)—or the weekend brunch, a family pilgrimage guaranteed to necessitate a subsequent stroll through the tree-shaded streets of this charming village.
The verandah, light and airy with French doors and high ceilings, is a romantic setting if you’re doing the table for two thing, while the dining room, with its post-and-beam structure (the original building, constructed around 1867, was actually a doctor’s house), is better for the brunch. That way no one can get between you and the carving station.
Whatever decision you make will be the right one. Or you could hedge your bets: Come tonight and book a table for two. Head up Sunday morning and do a table for the whole family.
