looking for something in the church and wellesley village
I'm going for dinner with a friend tomorrow and she would like to go somewhere in the church and wellesley village.
She said she'd prefer sit outside, but that it's not a must.
We're reasonably frugal diners, so something in the $15-20 pp range.
The only place I frequent there is Hair of the Dog. Since I frequent it I was thinking it would be nice to try some place different.
We're very open on type of food too.
No seafood, but that's about the only limitation.
Looking forward to your suggestions...
You alredy mentioned Hair of the Dog, which is my favourite suggestion for the neighbourhood.
The Churchmouse & Firkin is a good typical pub experience, but you might be looking for something more inspiring than that.
Other than that, I find the food in the village to be somewhat lacking. Brownstone and Volo are both nearby, which are great, but not in the C & W neighbourhood. They're both on Yonge, north of Wellesley. A google map search will yield addresses for both.
Avoid Zelda's for food, but go there for a drink afterwards.
Cafe California is doable... nothing awe inspiring to be sure but there is a patio and the food is decent.
PJ Mellons is OK. Last time there I had the paella, which would have been good except for raw scallions (which I hate) in the rice. They don't have a patio as such but the front porch opens to the street in the summer. Appetizers + entree could be had for $20 pp, without drinks.
