Crisp on the outside, fluffy inside, drizzled with chocolate sauce and served up with scoops of creamy ice cream. You can't go wrong.

For great things to do in Brockville you can't beat the Brockville Museum. Not only do they offer a wonderful insight into the how Brockville has grown to the great city it is today, but they regularly host events throughout the year. For example, on November 29th, they are holding a Candy Making Heritage Skills Workshop just in time for the Holiday baking season.

Fall in Love with the International Flavours of the Many Restaurants in Brockville

Fall is a wonderful time to explore new flavours, and the many international restaurants in Brockville provide you ample opportunities to try new foods. Here at the Brockville Downtown Business Improvement Area, we are particularly fond of our global offerings.

Enjoy a Traditional English Tea at Cosies

When you think of an English Tea, you think delicate biscuits, crumbly scones, savoury sandwiches, and freshly brewed tea. At Cosies, you get that and more, with every tasty treat baked fresh daily.

Immerse Yourself in the Flavours of Chinese Cuisine

Downtown Brockville is home to many wonderful Chinese Restaurants, supplying the community with mouthwatering buffets and take-out. Among the many great options:

Experience the Aromatic Flavour of Lebanese Food

Shawarma Garden is the area's only Lebanese restaurant that specializes in shawarma, a Mediterranean delicacy of specially prepared and seasoned meats, which pairs well with their signature garlic potatoes.

Sample the Unique Tastes of Traditional Indian Food

The freshly made selections at Tandoori Mint provide much more than a flavourful meal, they provide a wholly unique experience. While they offer catering services and take out options, we highly recommended you spend an evening in their welcoming dining room and allow yourself to fully experience traditional Indian Food.

Add Some Spice to Your Meals at Nakhon Thai Restaurant

Thai food is known for its complex and spicy flavours that are often cooled down with fresh cucumber. However, not all Thai food is overly spicy. At Nakhon Thai, each dish is made from scratch using the freshest ingredients and traditional Thai recipes.
