The owner of this property knows what she is doing. Friendly, quick service in a beautiful tearoom atmosphere, right on the shore of Lake Muskoka. Oh, and really good food!

Egg salad sandwich with soup! The bread was perfection and comes from the local bakery! The setting is very peaceful! Our waitress was just fantastic and had a great sense of humour! We came twice - three weeks apart. Just as good the second time!

Nice view but cramped. Average food off the Sysco truck. Service was decent but slow. Lots of English kitchy decor. Boring menu, expensive and small portions. Much overrated.More
