We love featuring local food with cranberry flair, but, in spring, our thoughts turn to maple syrup. Combining sweet maple syrup with tart cranberries is a favourite spring activity.
The Cranberry (Maple) Cafe
Our menu is designed to warm you up and keep you going for more outdoor spring fun. Our style is relaxed, simple and self-serve. After picking up your food in the store, there are lots of places to enjoy it. Sit on a Muskoka chair by the fire, pull up a stool on the patio, or go inside McArthur House (the original family home) and relax at one of the cafe tables inside.
Our seasonal, local cheese plate is popular year round, featuring Ontario cheese and Mrs. J’s preserves. Transform it into a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich by choosing your bread (marble rye or panini), your cheese (maple mustard cheddar, cranberry cheddar, caramelized onion cheddar, 4 year old cheddar) and your condiment (maple caramelized onion, cranberry mayo, cranberry chutney, cranberry ketchup). Yum!
Looking for something special? Try a Hot Sheila – a combination of cran-apple cider and Red Maple Dessert Wine. If that doesn’t suit, try maple mulled wine or hot chocolate with a shot of maple syrup.
