Best butter tarts in town. Lots of choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner, as well as for a coffee. Great music on Thursdays.

During a recent road trip through the Bruce Peninsula, we did a bit of a butter tart tasting... Rachel’s was our first stop, in Lionhead.

Took some time to be served, as the one person working the front of the house tended to some tables having lunch.

We were eventually able to get our tarts, which included a chocolate filled chocolate shortbread version (my wife is not as big a butter tart fan!)

All were good, sweet, slightly messy, and with delicate crust.

Although ended up liking the filling better at subsequent stops, the pastry at Rachel’s was our favourite.

Cute little spot with outdoor dining. With that said I have frequented a couple of times and would say service is slow at best. We were there on a busy night, we came with our patience knowing it would be busy but after 20 minutes nothing...no one came by despite several staff walking around (the one guy behind the counter was hussling but he can't do it on his own)
Maybe stop for coffee but other than that I say there are better choices in town.

Okay Rachel's butter tarts are so good that they melt in your mouth and you feel like one is never enough. But how many butter tarts can one eat -- guilt guilt. Great little place for a light meal.
