Favourite " Ride to Eat" destinations in Ontario

Needs to be equal parts RIDE and equal parts EAT. I plan all my rides around these kinds of places. If there's nowhere to eat, I'm not going.
I'll start with a few I can think of.
The Ashgrove Inn in Barry's Bay.
There's a greek rest. in Verona ( sorry, forgot the name, but it's not a big place. )
Marks Finer Diner, Hwy 7, just south of Fowlers Corners. Not open Mon or Tues.
The Fare & Fowl in Tweed is pretty good.
I'm sure there's tons more out there.

From Ottawa:

I can't remember the name of the restaurant's name, but there is only one restaurant/gas-bar/corner-store in Griffith Ontario. Take Calabogie road (508) to Hwy 41 turn left and it is just down the road. Good food, great ride.

Don Cherry's in North Bay - Only works if riding from Ottawa (or maybe someplace far west). The food is terrible, and hockey fans are cheering for the wrong team, but the beer is cold and the ride make up for all other short comings (the hotel beside makes for a great over-night turn around point).

Looking forward to more posts in this thread.

The Fish and Chips joint in Kinmount is pretty tasty, they have tables down by the river that you can ride your bike right up to, PLUS they have deep fried Mars Bars. Just what you need when hitting the gnarly back trails.

Unfortunately, most of the places I can recommend would involve more riding than eating.

I only ride because it makes me look cool. Eating is a necessary thing and takes away from the whole "wow look how cool that guy is" image I have spent so many years perfecting. Ride to look cool, don't ride to eat!!

Don Cherry's is no more, but if you're riding to North Bay, you have to go to The Portage on Trout Lake (Peninsula Rd) anyway. It's worth the ride from anywhere.

I was back in North Bay this summer for the first time since 09, and in the 3 days I was there I ate at The Portage twice.

Well, when you copy and paste from Word, you introduce code that breaks the thread... that's why page 3 was hung up.

The Peterborough Airport used to have a nice little eatery that would serve you a great big farmers breakfast for about $6... Never did ride in, but we flew in many times. Been a few years though, not sure if they are still operating.

Thumb Little Louie's Burgers and Soup

234 Clyde Road in Cambridge Ontario Canada

Excellent Burger your way with a ton of options and as good as the fries are, the salads are even better! Go "Big" and get a double!

Should add that the homemade hot sauces(lower right of pic) and volcanic mayo are mighty tasty indeed! Lots of delectable looking accessories.

I was just trying to get an update on one of my favourite places. The South Algonquin Cookhouse. It's on 648, just west of Elephant lake rd. I've been there many times, but the address seems to have moved the place further west into Harcourt. That same location in Harcourt used to be a rather horrible, greasy place. Anyone know if they have moved or what. I know they haved closed a couple of times when business is slow, but all the photos of the place still show the original locaction.

Also, seeing as someone was good enough to revive this thread, the Mirror Cafe on hwy 28 north ( just south of 118). Excellent food, great service, but I wouldn't call it inexpensive. A few minutes south of that is a little place called the Sommerset Inn, run by old friends of mine Dave & Laurie. Motorcycle friendly ( they ride, if you ask Dave nicely he will put your bike in his garage). Lots of good riding in the area too.

Can't think of a thread more worthy of revival and thanks for the two suggestions. If we don't get to the two mentioned above on our way to Ottawa sometime this winter, we will certainly scope them out on the Motos next year.

BTW...Thanks for staring the thread.

I know that in the fall it was in the only spot I remember (in Harcourt, beside the gas station; was it called "Algonquin Cookhouse"?) The owners bought the diner in Wilberforce and if truth be told I like the Wilberforce place better even thogh it is more of a diner than a restaurant.
