Bernard Stanley’s isn’t your typical pub. Elevating classic fare with local ingredients and dynamite flavours while maintaining the warm and inviting atmosphere of a pub is their unique speciality.

Since BSG offers brunch from 10-4 EVERY SINGLE DAY, you don’t have to wait until Sunday to enjoy their Crunchy Brie Stuffed French Toast with Rum Caramel Sauce. If you enjoy the “lunch” part of brunch, dig into their BSG Nachos which includes a rocking vegetarian chili, or keep it light with their Vegan Tomato Soup and a Veggie Sandwich.

The Gypsy Tea Room

Don’t let the name fool you, this isn’t your nan’s tea and biscuit café. Located in the historic Murray Premises, The Gypsy Tea Room offers a unique mixture of classic favorites & casual cuisine with creative flare. This is the perfect spot to stop for lunch or a couple of delicious apps.

They’re well-known for their “Gypsy Tea Room Nachos”—and for good reason! Hand cut corn chips are piled high with tomatoes, jalapenos, olives, red onion, roasted corn, black beans, and mixed cheese. Perfect for sharing or snacking. For lunch or dinner, try their new-ish Vegan Bowl made with lemon quinoa salad, marinated tofu, guac, and a tangy Thai peanut sauce.

Chinched Bistro

Don’t let the pig shaped welcome sign throw you off, Chinched embraces vegetarians too.

Mostly known for their charcuterie and deli options, Chinched applies the same flavor profiles to their vegetarian fare. If you’re a cheese lover and, let’s face it, who isn’t, we suggest opting for the Chef’s Choice Cheese Board. The selection of artisan cheeses served with candied nuts, olives, pickles, fruit compote & crackers can be a meal on its own.

Add in a few smokey vegetarian sides, like their Gochujang Roasted Squash or Grilled Carrots with Pepitas, and you will leave full and happy, or as we say around these parts, “chinched”.
