The Town of Bracebridge is located in the Heart of Muskoka — approximately 2 hours north of Toronto. The Town has many unique restaurants and culinary experiences. A few that stand out are Muskoka Natural Food Market, The Creative Cook, and Muskoka Brewery. Muskoka Natural Food Market is a hub for healthy eating in Bracebridge. The Deli Llama and Buddha’s Bakery, within Muskoka Natural Food Market, serve vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free foods. They also host monthly concerts, and cooking classes. The Creative Cook is a charming little kitchen store in Downtown Bracebridge. In addition to selling gourmet gadgets, The Creative Cook also plays host to regular cooking classes with local chefs. Finally, Muskoka Brewery is a legendary spot when visiting Bracebridge — heading to this award winning brewery for a tour and a pint is a must.
Beyond these three gems, there are many great local restaurants in town as well.
On the long weekend in August every summer, The Griffin Gastropub hosts Sessions Muskoka. This beer festival features craft breweries, cideries and wineries from across the province while drawing approximately 5000 participants to Annie Williams Park for an outstanding summer day.
We start any weekend in cottage country with a pint of good beer — and Bracebridge has ‘em in spades. Stop in at Muskoka Brewery for their latest to sip on the dock or have the barkeeps at The Griffin Gastropub pour you the perfect pint.
On Saturdays, we make sure to stop in the Bracebridge Farmers’ Market in Memorial Park to see what’s up. From wild blueberries to baked goods galore, it’s a great place to stock up for the weekend!
Following the market, we pick up a coffee and a butter tart from one of the many downtown eateries. Then walk towards the bottom of the street, right near the Visitors Information Center, to find the best known of Bracebridge’s numerous waterfalls, Bracebridge Falls. From there it’s an easy stroll to the Historic Walkway along the shore of Bracebridge Bay.
