Help for Lunch in Brantford

I am hoping that someone might be able to help me with this one. I will be attending a funeral in Brantford on Monday so I am looking for a spot to have a light bite of lunch at. Nothing overly fancy, if the only places are chains then that will have to do. I seem to recall a nice, rather eclectic spot downtown that did wraps and salads but I can't remember the name.

Any suggestions?

  1. In Brantford, there are a few places with a great lunch.

    Ged's Restaurant and Cocktail lounge on Brant Ave. has a really nice lunch. It is in an old house. It is probably the nicest restaurant in Brantford but the prices are pretty reasonable.

    Speekeezies Cafe on Fairview near West St. has wonderful lunches and dinners! They would be my number one choice for lunch, or Ged's.

    We have lots of chains, Boston pizza, keg, caseys, montanas,east side marios etc. too

    Williams Coffee Pub has cheap, good lunches. It is on West St. near Fairview. Chain.

      My SIL and BIL live in Brantford and it doesn't strike me as a great place for food. It seems like a chain restaurant kind of place. It always struck me as unusual that as recently as 3 or 4 years ago they still had a O'Toole's there. The Wellington Coffee Pub is a good safe choice. The salads, waffles, wraps, sandwiches there are all quite good and a reasonable price. Other than that, you're heading towards chicken ball, deep fried zucchini sticks, nachos and the like in Gretzky land.

    2. Too late for your visit, but I think the place you referred to is called "Aroma's".. it's on Market Street, right downtown.. they serve soup, salads, wraps, sandwiches, chili, quiche, baked goods, cappuccinos, etc., but they're not open on weekends.

      1. I'm also too late to help...but I'm pretty sure you mean Warmington's Bistro at 42 George Street (
        )We moved to Brantford from Toronto and this is where I always take out of town guests (along with Ged's or Rendezvous).

          It was indeed Warmington's (I managed to track it down a bit later..) unfortunately they were closed on Mondays so I wasn't able to go there. It was/is a really nice spot so I am looking forward to going there again at some point!
