Jax Sweet Shoppe

Who knew this sweet shoppe served brunch! Instead of hitting up another downtown Hamilton spot, I met up with my usual brunch crew in Dundas. We planned on eating at Detour but we found out they had a limited menu, so we skipped over to Jax Sweet Shoppe. A cute little diner in a collonial-looking building right on King Street. The space is small with enough seating for 20 people. It’s a straight-up diner with glossy steel tables, round and colourful chairs, walls filled with photographs, neon lights, and a retro CocaCola cooler with bottled Coke. Along the left are ice cream coolers and cases full of cookies, tarts, and cakes!Read More »

Pepperwood Bistro Brewery

A fairly easy restaurant to find, it sits on Lakeshore Road in Burlington facing Lake Ontario. They also have a patio section out front for those breezy summer days. Our party of 6 decided to sit inside. We definitely made the right choice because the rain came down hard halfway through our meal. The décor inside is classic with dark wood paneling, chandeliers and a luxurious bar. The menu reflects the décor with classic North American comfort food. I’m severly late on this review because I came here back in 2012!
