Love this stop on the way to Tobermory! We stopped early on the way to catch the 10 am boat to Flowerpot Island. We took to go a coffee, 2 sandwiches to eat for lunch and 2 of the most delicious cookies ever - the...tahini with vegan chocolate chips! The whole visit and drive back I was planning to pickup more cookies to go but missed the store close at 3 pm by minutes. Will have to plan a visit back just to get the cookies. Thanks to TruFood Cafe for the delicious and healthy food choices!More

Truly a diamond in the rough......... If you are driving through the Bruce Peninsula either way DO NOT PASS THIS BY!!! This great spot opens early (6:30 a.m.) to serve their community by offering friendly conversation, a variety of baked treats and a TASTY breakfast...sandwich. Welcoming and helpful staff and a comfortable dining area that looks like someone's home and MUST be a terrific gathering spot for locals .More

There are very few cafes on the northern Bruce peninsula before Tobermory but Trufood Cafe is that rare bird! Inside an unassuming little house, set by itself surrounded by farmland, one will find one’s expresso coffee fix which can be accompanied by a delicious gourmet...panini and/or tasty homemade bakery. Yes, they had vegan selections when we were there for those who may wonder. We noticed there was always someone coming in or going as we ate in the homey sitting area with works by local painters on the wall. (Try finding the three wolves!) There is a bookcase and toys and a blackboard for the kids. A very nice place to take an afternoon break!More

Thank you ladies, I came across this little place on my way to Cape Chin, quiet, quaint little spot on the corner of Highway 6 and Lindsay Road 5, I am typically not a sweet fan, but the pineapple pecan cookies are truly amazing..so good...I went back for more later in the day. A MUST visit for all, organic coffee, homemade gluten free granola, local products and home baked goods.. again thank youMore

Great place to stop on highway 6 just about 1/2 hour from the Grotto. We were impressed with the range of options available - breakfast sandwiches, sandwiches, salads, many GF and vegan options, baked goods (with nut free options). And excellent value for the money!

We stopped here on our way to Tobermory. A little gem. My husband and I each had an organic coffee to go (he had the dark roast and I had the regular). Very tasty, hot and fresh. We also each had a cookie(our son too)....They were very fresh and delicious. The store also sells fresh sandwiches etc and has a freezer of homemade frozen entrees.More

From the outside this is just a wooden building with an unpaved parking lot at the crossing of two county road in the middle of rural Canada with a warning on the mosquito net door that the restroom is only for customers. From the inside...it is a clean, friendly, modern and cosy cafe with a nice view, with nice amenities including books and toy station for patrons of any age. Service is fast and friendly and the food is healthy and tasty. Soup was fantastic, paninis good (especially the goat cheese). Good vegetarian options. Even the cookies taste healthy: filling and satisfying but not heavy or too sweet. Coffee is also very good. Overall a great experience on any scale, though the pleasant surprise based on the location made it even more memorable.More

You will not be disappointed. Fresh baked goods, paninis, bagels etc. Very clean and nicely set up. It is larger inside than it looks. There is a place for children to play and ready books. We had paninis, very tasty.
