Burlington’s food and dining experience is among the best in Ontario. And our local residents love to dine out as much as visitors. The chefs of our many cafés and trendy chic eateries will conjure up whatever your taste buds are craving. From nouveau cuisine and fine dining to more traditional family-style home-cooked meals. For some tantalizing international flavours, try one of our Thai, Japanese, Indian, Greek, Italian, Persian or Mediterranean restaurants.
Burlington is also home to culinary events like the A Taste of Burlington prix fix dining program, Lakeside à la Carte, and Ribfest. We also have lots of sweet treats including heavenly baked goods, tasty artisan foods, chocolatiers and themed events. Bon Appétit!
Taste of Burlington runs as a prix-fixe program twice each year in February/March and again in August.
Restaurants across the city offering a three-course prix fixe dining menu for lunch/dinner; with lunch offered at $15 or $20 and dinner at $30, $35 or $40. However, the rest of the year we promote Culinary programs and events in and around Burlington, such as Burlington Food Tours, E-A-T and Novemburger.
Our perfect weekend in Burlington always starts with a visit to the Centro Farmer’s Market. Now in its 7th season, Centro Market is a food focused market that runs from May to October. We make sure to grab a scoop of Foundry Ice Cream, a bottle of West Avenue Cider and some preserves from Thimbleberry Farm each time we stop by.
For lunch, we’d head to The Water Street Cooker, Queen’s Head Pub or Son of a Peach Pizzeria for the perfect wood-fired pie!
Between meals, we’d make some time to sample and sip at Nickle Brook Brewing Co. The taproom has 20+ beers on tap for flights, full pours and growler fills – including Babbling Brook’s Root Beer and Naughty Nick’s Ginger Beer, their home brewed non-alcoholic sodas.
If the occasion calls for a little extra something, we always make sure to book a table (with a view!) at Spencer’s On The Waterfront. The food is even better than the lakeside view at this Feast On Certified spot!
