This year we will be open 7 days a week for lunch. Saturday and Sunday we will serve lunch and brunch. Savour items such as eggs benedict, French toast, merridale hash – all with an apple twist of course. The orchard bistro will open for dinner Friday and Saturday evenings until the wedding season begins. Our regular comfort food menu will be available alongside dinner specials such as steak, pork chops, and seafood. As noted above, this year it is back to the basics of comfort. Good food, reasonable prices, local ingredients, and something for everyone in the family. Welcome back!

Reservations are recommended! Give us a call at (250) 743-4293
