Summer Food & Drink in Stratford

Although restaurants may not be fully back to normal, there are a lot of exciting ways to EAT amazing food from our incredible local restaurants! 

Pazzo Picnic Window is OPEN for gourmet sandwhiches, pizza slices, salads cold beer and wine! AND Gelato. Conveniently located within walking distance to the open green space by the river to have a PICNIC. 

We recently picked up TAKE-OUT of their Antipasti platter, Cucumber Salad a couple bottles of their wine for a backyard  Cocktail Hour. 

We placed the already assorted Antipasti on our Once Upon a Tree boards and set out individual small plates for guests for socially distanced backyard cocktails. 

Pazzo’s Patio and indoor seating is OPEN as well! Click HERE for more details!

Another perfect place for TAKE-OUT and a Stratford Favourite – York Street Kitchen

York Street Kitchen & Mercer Hall are two of our go-to’s for picking up our favourite gourmet sandwiches (York Street) and fried chicken with coleslaw (Mercer) and take it to Tom Patterson Island for a Lunch Date Picnic.  A stunning green space located in the heart of Stratford! 

A MUST visit is YSK Bistro A Secret Garden Patio. Located at 151 Albert St. Beautiful lunch menu for outdoor dining. 

We highly recommend ordering the Fresh Lobster Roll, if it’s still on the menu!

So many GREAT patios have been extended downtown – and we recommend them ALL. This is Mercer Hall, a great selection of on tap Beers and excellent food! 

Another AMAZING place for fresh pasta and salad take out! AO PASTA. Now OPEN for Dining-In or order online, call ahead to pick up your order and eat Al Fresco in Market Square. 

Another one of our FREQUENT stops for lunch is Sirkel Foods – always the most delicious food and the best service. OPEN for takeout and located right in the heart of Market Square. 

And if you are lucky you’ll see this cutie Ewan there, helping his Moms Kelly & Mel- Owners and Operators of Sirkel. 

So MANY amazing Alfresco options in Stratford. Be sure to Follow Visit Stratford – Stratford Tourism for all the updates. 

Braai House has extended their gorgeous Patio and it is a sweet haven in the city. Food is always incredible too! 

AND quite possibly the most delish cocktail list we have ever seen! We’ve sampled a few. 

Shakespeare Gardens – another one of our favourite picnic spots in the heart of Stratford. Lush gorgeous gardens with plenty of green SPACE to enjoy a picnic AND a short walk from many of our fabulous take-out restaurants.

Grab some healthy selections from Edison’s Cafe and head to Shakespeare Gardens! 

So many ways and places to support our local restaurants and ENJOY!
