Hi fellow Canadian hounds. For many years when I was little, my family vacationed in Leamington. I loved waking up to the smell of cooking tomatoes and loved how clean and quiet the town was. There was a little beach in town as I recall, and I remember ice cream at Burgess' refreshments but I think most of the places we used to visit are no longer there (Diana restaurant, Tropicana pizza in a nearby town, the name of which I can't remember, the A&P, etc.). Anyway, I am bringing my family to Canada this year for vacation. Neither my husband nor my 3 y.o. toddler son have ever been there. Am hoping it remains as clean and safe and low-key as I recall.

We have booked a cottage in nearby Wheatley, and with a cranky (but food-friendly) toddler, expect we will take many meals in the cottage instead of navigating restaurants, but it would be great if any of you could pass on recommendations for child-friendly local spots including diners for breakfast or lunch, any type of cuisine. Hole in the wall places are welcome, preferably ones that take credit cards though as we will not be bringing a ton of cash. Bars probably not so much, what with the kiddo and all.

We have entertainment options sewn up, such as they are (yay you have chuck e cheese like we do), but am lacking in the food department. Also a good foodie type grocery near Leamington or Wheatley would be appreciated.

We leave for Canada on the 15th. Hope you can recommend some places for me! Thanks!
