Southampton/Port Elgin Restaurants
Ristorante Rosina’s 698 Goderich St, Port Elgin, ON N0H 2C0 Port Elgin and Southampton take a (small) step away from the tourism town feel of The Beaches of the Bruce. As they largely operate as communities of residents rather than tourism towns you can find a bit more sophistication. Ristorante Rosina’s is a fine example of that - traditional italian plates done exceptionally well. Flatbreads and pastas, as well as hearty and perfectly prepared mains.
Highview Food and Drink 166 High St, Southampton, ON N0H 2L0 One of the newer restaurants in town - Highview Food and Drink stands out with it’s boutique charm. Enter through an arched doorway and be instantly taken back by the esthetic. A mixture of quiet and intimate ambiance with a Toronto Queen Street chic. The cocktail list is fairly extensive and the plates are prepared in a way that treats your eyes before your mouth. It’s likely fair to describe the menu as Italian Fusion although they do not label themselves as such. Highview is definitely one to write home about.
Sauble Beach Restaurants
Casero Taco Bus 316 Main St, Sauble Beach, ON N0H 2G0 Along Sauble Beaches Main Street is Casero Taco Bus - a double decker retro bus that is outfitted in classic Mexican stylings.

Seating is outdoors with limited shade, so you might want to consider the weather before making a long trek.
Wellness Refinery 656 Main St, Sauble Beach, ON N0H 2G0 One of the only spots in the area where everything on the menu is created by a licensed nutritionist - with many foods sourced from the famous Keady Market just outside of town.

Tobermory Brewing Co. 28 Bay St, Tobermory, ON N0H 2R0 The beer will bring you in - but you’ll stay for the food. Ribs, salads, seafood. All of which are delicious, fun, and fresh.
