There’s no shortage of great places to eat and drink in Stratford, Ontario. Sputnik’s espresso shop offers the edgy, sexy styling you’d expect in a major European city. Super cool or what. And my favourite coffee machine – an Electra. Balzac’s presents the lovely balance of old world comfort with friendly, urban service.
Also on the main drag, is my most favourite place to be: Down the Street Bar & Restaurant.
Owner Susan Dunfield (shown here) is the mastermind behind the magic – generous, professional service, good food, clever design, and the right balance between special and everyday. If you can’t have fun here stay home. Short wine list of Billy’s Best Bottles favourites at very reasonable prices.
