Elora and Fergus’s food and beverage scene is a delightful adventure for the palate, offering a smorgasbord of tastes from cozy cafes to elegant dining.
Imagine sipping a locally brewed craft beer at a brewery like Elora Brewing Company before heading over to a mouthwatering lunch at The Evelyn or kickin’ it old school at a red-stooled bar with a chocolate milkshake and chow mein at the Black and White Restaurant in Fergus. Obsessed with farm to table? Check out La Fontana, a Feast On® certified stop specializing in fresh pastas and wood oven pizza.
For those with a sweet tooth, The Elora Café brings a touch of Parisian charm with its delectable pastries and The Lost and Found Café is tucked away off the main drag with loads of warm beverages, cookies and more awaiting you.
Feel like being pampered? No problem! Check out the Feast On® certified Elora Mill Hotel & Spa for ultra luxury and feel-good fine dining worth driving for.
