How to eat your way through Oakville in three days

Whether you’re looking to indulge in delicious food, find the perfectly Instagrammable plate or expand your culinary palate, Oakville is the ultimate destination for a foodie foray. Escape into indulgence with this three-day culinary lakeside adventure.

Note: The suggestions below are based on information available in March 2024. Please contact businesses directly to confirm. 

Day 1: Vegan dining and scrumptious sushi

Drop your bags at your hotel and make your way to Kerr Village for an afternoon of shopping and dining.

Explore this niche neighbourhood’s unique shops such as My Back shed and The Kind Matter Company before stopping at Community for a delicious vegan lunch. Between lentil crepes, butter tofu and Rolo cake slices, you’ll want to make a return trip to taste everything you missed.

Enjoy some fresh air once you’re done and explore this neighbourhood’s natural beauty on foot. Try your hand at a game of chess at Westwood Park’s built-in tables or take in the Toronto skyline from Tannery Park.

Tired of the same old takeout sushi? Well you are in luck, Downtown Oakville is home to two Japanese restaurants that specialise in sushi. Visit either Hoseki Sushi Omakase Bar or Kibo Sushi for a delicious dinner.

Take in the moonlit sights of this neighbourhood’s historic buildings and beautiful lakeshore before grabbing a nightcap at the King’s Arms. This Talk of the Town Award-winning restaurant won Visit Oakville’s award for best cocktails in 2022. They also carry an impressive flight of Ontario craft beers that will have you saying “cheers” to your weekend away.

Day 2: Award-winning brews and a starlight dinner

Begin your second day in Oakville with a beautiful brunch at Pur and Simple in Bronte Village. This newly opened restaurant will have your mouth watering with their mix of sweet and savoury breakfast and lunch dishes.

Once you’ve finished your meal, take your time exploring this gorgeous lakeside neighbourhood. Pop your head into their many small boutiques like Pure Boutique and Lakeside Living before grabbing a cone from The Flavour Fox (Best Ice Cream Talk of the Town Award-winner) before taking in the gorgeous harbour views from Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park.

You’ll need a small lunch after that filling breakfast, so make a detour to Farmhouse Artisan Cheese for a takeaway charcuterie spread of locally-sourced cheeses and cured meats.

Pack it all up and make your way to Cameron’s Brewing Co. for a taste of Oakville’s award-winning brews. Pair your meal with their IPA, IPL, red ale, cream ale or lager and enjoy a fresh-air lunch on one of their picnic tables.

Bring your culinary adventure to an end with a meal under the stars. Head back to Bronte Village and enjoy American style tapas on the patio of Plank Restobar or visit Downtown Oakville and dine at Verace, an Italian style restaurant specialising in pizza, pasta, and seafood.

Day 3: Cafe favourites

Make the most of your final morning in Oakville with a small breakfast at Vereda Central or Taste of Colombia. Wake up with a cup of ethically-sourced joe and grab a pastry for the road.

Don’t forget to grab some takeaway from your favourite places on your way out so you can still experience a taste of Oakville from home. And tag @VisitOakville in your adventures!
