Unfortunately this place has now closed down and there are no plans at this time to re-open. However if they do, you must stop by for their eggs benedict in this small and quaint place. Everything is prepared on the stop and home cooked. Sorry...to see it go, but keeping fingers crossed that some day they will re open.More

We stopped in for a break while on an around Lake Rosseau bike ride. The coffee and cookies were great, and the staff was super friendly and efficient. Lovely outside patio to sit and enjoy the fare.

Made the trip up from Brampton today to share lunch with my family here. Nowhere else in Muskoka comes close! Such a warm, friendly and casual environment and the food was outstanding as always. I LOVE the Rosseau Ruben and will keep coming back for...one on a regular basis. The salads are super fresh, and the love and passion put into the service and food prep is so obvious. A true gem in Muskoka. We will return again and again! Thank you Katie and Cory! You made my/our day more special - again.More

My husband and I are on holiday from the UK and found this restaurant when we were driving through to our hotel. What a find , the food is delicious and the owners were so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The...greeting outside says "Welcome enter as guests leave as friends". So true.More

We arrived for breakfast in an enormous rain storm. We took the full breakfast. A lovely location and setting, but a few problems. We weren't asked how we wanted our eggs, and got dry scrambled. Also there were only 2 very small rashers of bacon...- which was a shame as the bacon was very good. 24 dollars for the two of us, including coffee, was not a bad price. Ah well, there was a great poster on anarchy on the wall that kept us amused.More

Thanks for coming in from the rain. I'm sorry about the dry eggs. We would have fixed them if you had told us! Also, the menu says "eggs come poached or scrambled". You can also feel free to ask us about the items on our...More
