Local restaurants need our support. While many have opened their doors to inside dining and their patios have been extended, it has been a tough time. These local merchants are an integral part of our community. They offer a place go to meet friends and celebrate special occasions. They are our neighbours and we should do what we can to help keep their doors open.
Everyone’s comfort level is different when it comes to dining out, but we can all help these local businesses by ordering food to go. There are many delivery options available as well for those that really do not want to venture out. There are no excuses! Try something different, you just might find a new favourite place to dine! Here are a few of ours!
