December 13th, 2018

Between the hustle and bustle of this busy season, the holidays are a great time to see friends and catch up. Finding a cozy restaurant with delicious food isn’t hard if you head into Downtown Brantford! It has some of the best locally owned and operated restaurants in the city. If you’ve been thinking about trying a trendy Poke Bowl or treating yourself to a traditional surf and turf, there is something for everyone!


You can travel the world in Downtown Brantford with Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican, Indian, French, Jamaican, Japanese, Chinese, British, Caribbean, and many traditional Canadian classics. All of these and many more are perfectly located in central Brantford! 


Who better to get the inside scoop on the foodie scene downtown than Executive Director Annette Wawzonek of the Downtown Brantford BIA. We asked Annette if she has tried every restaurant downtown yet? She told us, “No, unfortunately I have not but I'm working on it.  On my list of "have to try" is Cafe Andreou and Reel and Raw Poke.  I'm not sure I would consider myself a foodie but I do love to eat!  And you can bet that at least three times a week I am visiting a downtown eatery for lunch.”


When we asked Annette what the best part of the international food scene in downtown Brantford was she explained, “The best part is the variety.  Opening soon at 117 Market Street is Mian's Curry - Indian/Pakistani Cuisine.

Whenever I see someone looking for a great place to eat in Brantford, whether they are new to the city or have been here for years, is to make Downtown Brantford your first choice.  Because there are so many choices within a few blocks and there are new eateries opening all the time.”
