THE MILL CAFE in Thornbury October 2012

We are always on a quest for some new and wonderful place to eat and enjoy some nice wine.  Our latest discovery is The Mill Cafe in Thornbury. 

I believe many of you will know this cafe HOWEVER do you know it is now under new ownership and newly managed by Dave and Linda Phillips along with  Chef Nick who does a wonderful job with his terrific menu with something to please everyone's palate? 

We enjoyed a delicious dinner accompanied by some wonderful wine David brought with us to enjoy at a very fair and nominal corkage of $10 per bottle.  The bonus is on Wednesday nights when corkage is only $1 definitely promoting the enjoyment of wine with your meal at an affordable cost.  We were also fortunate to taste their house wine and priced at $36.00 is a great addition to any meal. 

Be sure to meet Dave Phillips your host who will  give you a complete description of the menu and many wonderful suggestions. 

We are organizing a "special" event soon at The Mill Cafe so stay tuned for more information.

Our first tasting at Cranberry Resort in Collingwood was a success!  We had a sold out crowd.  All enjoyed the wonderful wines chosen by David as well as  the great food in Memories dining room and the company of old and new friends!  David did a great job introducing Winetasters to the crowd and we had a few join up as members on the spot!  Stay tuned for a list of dates for upcoming events. Please put the following link into your browser and see the pictures:
