Nothing makes a shopping trip like a lunch break or leisurely dinner to end you day of searching for that perfect something for you or your special someone. Downtown Collingwood offers an array of sumptuous dishes and delicacies. Whether you’re an adventurous foodie or have a favourite classic meal, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy. Take your sweetheart out for Pranzo— a Long Italian Dinner—at Azzurra, an authentic Italian ristorante. Or take a trip to Tuscany without ever leaving the Town limits at Brunello at 27 on Fourth, featuring signature bruschetta and fresh pasta. Tesoro rounds out the selection of Italian offerings in Collingwood’s historic downtown.

Enjoy the ambience of the Strand, a piano bar featuring a menu distinctly influenced by modern French cuisine, located in the historic former Bank of Montreal building.   The Huron Club offers an eclectic menu that ranges from upscale casual to uniquely elegant.

Some of the newest additions to downtown’s dining scene are the Potato Factory Bar & Grill and the Crow Bar and Variety …. Check out Gibson and Company for a coffee or after work drink.

Curl up with the newspaper or a good book at any of the numerous cafés in Downtown Collingwood. Experience the fusion of old-world charm meets trendy espresso bar at The Espresso Post.  Have a coffee while you check out the new vinyl at Mad Dogs Coffee and Vinyl Café.  Support ethical practices with an organic, fair trade coffee from the Creemore Coffee Studio and then catch up with an old friend over lattes & scones at The Lethal Buzz.  The only way to enjoy the cooler weather of fall is with a steaming cup of cocoa, a cozy fire and good company; these charming coffee shops invite you and your family to stop by for a well-deserved break.

Plan an intimate get together at Cabin Bistro or the Tremont Café, inviting locales with a casual elegance and gourmet fare. Looking for authentic British fare, try Fish &Sips.
