Food tourists, gather around! We’re thrilled for our friends over at Oddbird for ranking No. 85 on Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants list! 🥂🍽️⁠
A panel of 150 judges made up of informed culinary enthusiasts, food writers and critics, chefs, restaurateurs and other food-service professionals were asked to vote for restaurants based on the complete dining experience: service, décor, the depth of the cellar — and, above all else, food quality. Travel was a requirement resulting in an accurate measure of which restaurants excelled in 2023 — which makes them great dining choices for today.

C100B has this to say in its recognition for Oddbird: ‘This jumping little spot in Niagara wine country turns out deceptively complex flavours from primarily local ingredients.’
A big congratulations to @oddbird.niagara and another local favourite in the @niagarabenchlands, @restaurant_pearlmorissette, and, of course, all the incredible restaurants on this year’s list. Well done everyone! Link in bio at @lovestc_ to check out this year’s list.

Step back in time and take your family to the Lakeside Park Carousel. With 68 animals to choose from, the carousel can bring out the child in all of us. The historic carousel, a Charles I.D. Looff original, was hand carved from 1898 to 1905 and is beloved by all who visit. Hit our profile link at @lovestc_ for more details.

Hurry 🏃💨 Check out the Morningstar Mill heritage site before the dam construction starts.

Morningstar Mill is a rural industrial heritage site featuring a working grist mill that was rebuilt in 1872. The mill backs onto the Bruce Trail and Decew Falls and is a popular picnic, hiking and historic destination for residents and visitors alike. 

Tours of Morningstar Mill and the Morningstar's home are free. Donations are welcome. Morningstar Mill will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this weekend. However, the site will be closed to the public afterwards for the season while a dam replacement project is completed. Tap our profile link at @lovestc_ for more information.

Niagara locals don't want us to 'taco' 'bout this, but there's a great little spot downtown called 1954 Bourbon & Smoke with delicious food and creative cocktails 🤫 Click our profile link @lovestc_ for more off-the-radar restaurants and bake shops that locals are hoping visiting foodies won't find out about.
