Yes, there is secret spot in Niagara with terrific food, super low wine prices and the colourful/funky/casualness of a Californian café. Everything homebaked from local ingredients and if you go right away they may still be serving strawberry pizza – which is a real wow with Baco Noir. Should you drink too much there’s a lovely guest suite upstairs. Love this place. Daytime only and closed Mondays.
