We’re Now Open Evenings
You’ll find us open till 8 pm weeknights now that glorious summer has returned to cottage country. So if you’ve got a hankering for something sweet after a stroll on the boardwalk or if you forgot dessert for the big backyard barbecue or you just want to browse our cool shops on a warm summer night why not stop in for a visit? We’re open all the holidays too including the Civic Holiday Monday and all Labour Day weekend.
We’re Makin’ Smoothies!
And super good smoothies too. Nothing but fruit, a little nut milk or apple juice, and a scoopful of protein powder if you like too. They’re a super healthy breakfast on the go or an afternoon cool down on those warm summer days. Molly and Emma will also build you a custom smoothie to your specifications so you’re totally in control. Check them out along with iced coffees and lattes in our Back Porch Café.
Downtown Summer Events
There’s so much going on this summer it’s hard to know where to start! It kicks off with the Mariposa Folk Festival on July 6th and there’s a free stage just outside our front door all weekend long. On Saturday, July 28th the Summer Block Party and Sidewalk Sale will rock the downtown. The 20th annual Classic Car Show roars down Mississauga Street on Saturday, August 18th with 500 cool cars and live music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. And topping the summer off is the beautiful Starry Night Art Walk showcasing Orillia’s vibrant arts scene on Saturday, August 25th.
Grilling Up the Cheese
There’s always something new in our Back Porch Café and right now it’s our trio of fab twists on the classic grilled cheese sandwich. There’s the all Canadian Triple Cheese ‘n Bacon, the flamboyant ‘Flying Pig’ stuffed with BBQ pulled pork and cheesy macaroni, and the sophisticated ‘Appleton’ made with aged white cheddar and our homemade sweet red pepper jelly. And did I mention our Back Porch café opens at 7 am for custom breakfast sandwiches & wraps, baked omelets and fresh fruit yogurt parfaits?
