Can you believe that it is only 6 months till Christmas!! I can start decorating for the holiday season in just 3 months, and I can begin planning and getting excited NOW!!  Most of you know that I am not a hot weather fan. Sorry, but I cheer for cold.  Not ice!!

Toronto is really growing.  We now have our liquor store open.  These other businesses will be opening shortly with web pages for information.  Next door to the liquor store is a lovely and interesting antique store.  Down the street from me will be the "Sassy Sisters" store.  They will open for lunch and browsing.  Their next plan is to open a small bed and breakfast in the building next door to them.  We have a new Hunters Lodge called " The Bate House" available for evening, weekend or longer rentals.  There is also "Darby Place", a quiet vacation rental.  Anyone want to open a seasonal grocery store, maybe a glass blower or potter, candy maker.....any would be welcome.  Rents could be low.

It is wonderful to see life coming back to Toronto.  These micro mini towns still have a lot to offer and life to live.  Plan on spending some time in town next time you come.  I am thinking we will be needing a STOP LIGHT soon.


For the 3rd and 4th of July, we are offering our delicious Italian Sausage Stuffed Puff Pastry on a bed of arugula with a creamy cheese sauce.  On Sunday the 5th, we will be making our Pork Sausage Raviolis.  

This weekend July 3-5, we are celebrating

On Saturday night Jean will be here.

The last weekend of July will see us offering Sea Scallops wrapped in bacon with a rice medley.

Marla will play on both Friday and Saturday night.
As you tell your friends about us mention we are a reservation restaurant and to make them as early as they can.  If for some reason they can't keep the time, please let us know because we have folks waiting.

I try but I am not a fast cook.  Dinner here takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours in a relaxingenvironment, with soft music, and good conversation, therefore we are not recommended for children.  

We don't take credit / debit cards.

We have a full bar and allow byob-wine with a cork fee.
We thank you all for your support and will continue to try to do our best for you.
 Love, Courtney and Chris
