Anything special in Brantford Area
Looks like a great festival, but not really anywhere near Brantford, JamieK!
I have to go to Brantford once in awhile for business, and if I time things right I make the trek out to Camp 31 in Paris, but that's about it. There is a British-style pub in one of the newer plazas off Wayne Gretzky Parkway that does reasonable lunches, but it's no "foodie find".
If your route takes you east of Brantford on the 403, you might find something in Ancaster that feeds the sweet tooth. Also along that route, Weil's Bakery in Westdale (Hamilton) isn't far off the highway, near McMaster University, as is the Bean Bar, which does great desserts (but I'm not sure if they do takeout).
