Nith River Chop House Day 28

You got to love eating at a place that supports local business.  The Nith River Chop House uses all local meats, veggies, apple butter and even the bread comes from across the road from a neighbouring bakery.    After an entertaining interview with the chef, Matthew Cressey, I was told that they even grow some of their own herbs and he explained how every ingredient used is fresh. In the top 10 restaurants of all of Waterloo Region, they were ranked a very impressive #8 by Squidoo!  One of their specialties that got them there is the incredible schnitzel. 

The atmosphere is awesome as the place is tastefully decorated in a western country theme.

Kissing Bridge Day 26

The “Kissing bridge” located in West Montrose, Ontario and spans across the Grand River on a road that between Guelph and Elmira.  It is the only covered bridge left in Ontario

When it was built back in 1881, a local bridge keeper would keep the kerosene lanterns lit nightly and helped with snow shovelling so horse drawn sleighs could pass through.  Today, local residences living near the bridge volunteer their time and maintain the bridge, painting and help keeping it clean.  There are many different stories about how the bridge got its name of “Kissing Bridge”.  I was told that if you kiss under the bridge your love will last forever!

Today the bridge is still closed and being assessed by engineers for safety reasons.  The bridge suffered a broken beam in the structure caused by wear and tear of overweight vehicles crossing.  There is talk of having load sensors and cameras on the bridge to protect it from unauthorized oversized loads

The Waterlot Day 25

 I remember my first job I got in grade nine working as a dishwasher in the kitchen of the Waterlot.  I also remember that every time you worked a double shift, which I did a lot because I loved working for minimum wage of $4.15, I would receive a meal.  I always looked forward to this dinner and I remember it always being so good!  Times haven’t changed that much as the kitchen is still preparing incredible entrees and they still have an amazing Sunday brunch.  Everything they serve is still carefully prepared in the kitchen and bake shoppe.  Oh, I forgot to mention how much I loved the bake shoppe and how the staff used always used to bake a little extra just for me!  Take it from me, a person who has seen firsthand the care and detail that goes into each dish they serve.  If your looking for casual. fine dining, this is a great establishment to visit

The Waterlot is a great place to have a party as they have several private dining rooms and you can even get married on the banks of the river and have your wedding here.  They also have a B&B if you’re traveling and looking for accommodations.   The Waterlot is located at 17 Huron Street New Hamburg, Ontario.
