Day 1: Vegetarian dining and scrumptious sushi
Explore this niche neighbourhood’s unique hobby shops before stopping at Community for a delicious vegan lunch. Between lentil crepes, butter tofu and Rolo cake slices, you’ll want to make a return trip to taste everything you missed.
Enjoy some fresh air once you’re done and explore this neighbourhood’s natural beauty on foot. Try your hand at a game of chess at Westwood Park’s built-in tables or take in the Toronto skyline from Waterworks Park.
Take in the moonlit sights of this neighbourhood’s historic buildings and beautiful lakeshore before grabbing a nightcap at the King’s Arms. This Talk of the Town Award-winning restaurant carries an impressive flight of Ontario craft beers that will have you saying “cheers” to your weekend away.
Day 2: A touch of France and award-winning brews
Begin your second day in Oakville with a beautiful brunch at La Parisienne Creperie in Bronte Village. Though you may feel like you’ve been transported to Paris, this Feast On certified restaurant supports the local community by sourcing fresh, local and wholesome ingredients.
Once you’ve finished your meal, take your time exploring this gorgeous lakeside neighbourhood. Pop your head into their many small boutiques and grab a cone from The Flavour Fox (Best Ice Cream Talk of the Town Award-winner) before taking in the gorgeous harbour views from Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park.
You’ll need a small lunch after that filling breakfast, so make a detour to Farmhouse Artisan Cheese for a takeaway charcuterie spread of locally-sourced cheeses and cured meats.
Pack it all up and make your way to Cameron’s Brewing Co. for a taste of Oakville’s award-winning brews. Pair your meal with their IPA, IPL, red ale, cream ale or lager and enjoy a fresh-air lunch on one of their picnic tables.
Bring your culinary adventure to an end with a meal under the stars at Coriander Green or Dar Nabati. Prefer to stick with curbside pickup? Order takeout and experience the bright tastes of Oakville’s culinary masters from the comfort of your hotel room.
