Tremont Cafe, Collingwood, Ontario
I was gravitated toward Tremont Cafe right from the beginning because of its lovely website. http://www.thetremontcafe.com The restaurant is located in a historic building that used to be a hotel back in the 1889. It is beautifully renovated and has a french country flair to it. It’s casual and elegant, simple yet romantic. And the food – wonderful!
There’s definitely a good selection of vegetarian dishes. The salad was fresh and crisp, and I ordered the vegetarian chickpea curry with brown rice for dinner. Yes, you read that right, curry in a french restaurant. The creative menu that Tremont cafe offers is definitely a combination of different culinary elements from all over the world.
The primary colors are of white, blue with black metal highlights to create a rustic look and feel. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable with no rigid formality. For example, the table tops are made of natural stones, yet the supporting legs exhibits decorative metal work. Complemented with wooden chairs that has been distressed and coated white washed, the dining room is warm and inviting.
I totally dig this library room, I want one in my house one day!
One of my favourite feature is the exposed brick walls. I love how they frame the blackboard with a old and weathered window frame! I gotta get myself a blackboard to hang in my dining room, and it’s going to be filled with my special dishes 🙂
Of course it wouldn’t be completed without the bistro style patio.
