There are so many wonderful things about Waterdown, and the impressive food scene is one of them. Some of our most beloved restaurants are located in this charming community, and we’ve missed visiting them since social distancing came into effect. The good news? Many of our all-time favourites are still preparing their signature dishes for pick-up and delivery.
If you’re looking for an incredible meal in Waterdown, here are five restaurants where you can get one right now…
It’s one of Waterdown’s finest. We’re talking about Cascata Bistro, the charming cafe that’s offering curbside takeout during the pandemic. We can’t enough of the casual-yet-deeply-satisfying fare served up by this Carlisle Road gem. The owner takes a farm-to-table approach, and the results speak for themselves. From steamed mussels to savoury flatbreads, every item on the menu is worth sampling. Our only regret is, for the time being, we can’t enjoy Cascata’s chicly-decorated atmosphere.
Are you a soup lover? Us too. There’s just something about a warming bowl of chowder, broth, puree—you get the picture. At its best, soup is flavourful and made with love. That’s why we’re such big fans of Souptogo. These dishes, simmered to perfection on a local farm, are beyond delicious. We’re especially big fans of the more unique flavour combinations, like pea and mint or Thai pumpkin. Curbside orders are currently being accepted, and you can get more information here.
Vegetable lovers, rejoice! Bliss Kitchen is cooking up vegan delights that can be safely enjoyed at home while we social distance. We’re all about the savoury mains and sides, especially the crispy chickpea burgers, baked falafels, and stuffed mushrooms. And it would be a crime not to try one of Bliss’ decadent desserts—think cashew cheezecake and chocolately brownies. You can check out the menu here, or find the eatery on Uber Eats or Skip the Dishes.
We love Shy’s Place for its levelled-up Italian food. Here you’ll find perfectly-prepared pizzas topped with gourmet ingredients—like prosciutto, pesto, and feta. There are also plenty of pasta dishes on the menu, combined with everything from sweet sausage to shrimp scampi. If you fancy a glass of wine or beer, you can also take home the right beverage to complement your meal. Head to Shy’s Place for contactless pick-up from Thursday to Sundays.
Kamoosh is an upscale Italian eatery that does the classics right. Whether you’re in the mood for tender veal cheek, rich beef tenderloin, or creamy lobster ravioli, this is the best place in town to get it. While the menu features traditional elements, it’s also highly inventive. Simply put, diving into a dish from Kamoosh is a true exploration—one where unique flavours combine effortlessly. If you’re ready to try this buzzworthy eatery, both takeout and delivery options are available.
Social distancing isn’t always easy, but some of Waterdown’s best restaurants are here to help make life a little more enjoyable. So eat, drink, support a local business, and don’t forget—we’re all in this together!
