Food Scene
This intimate bistro is often full, so call ahead to book a table. Or take out a chicken schnitzel dinner with cabbage (specialty). One order easily feeds two! Friendly service and an easy walk to Sherbrook Street. Highly recommended.

Entertainment & Activities
A Scandanavian-inspired outdoor oasis of hot pools, saunas, salt scrubs and cold water dips. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Its about a 15 minute drive away. It is about $50+ entry (without the extras) and plan to spend a whole day if you can. There is a restaurant, but ideally have a big breakfast first (Pancake House is on the way), and if you have a bathrobe and water bottle, bring those. Towels provided. REJUVENATING & RELAXING and great value. Winter or summer.
