  1. Haven't been to the 'ville in a year or so, but on the 'not to miss' end of life, the breads and pastries at Haisai bakery in Singhampton are some of the best in the Province bar none. Michael Stadtlander is the chef, and the pastries are sold in the mornings for takeout. They do high end lunches and dinners, but I have yet to try them, so can't speak to that.

    For restaurants, I have had very few solid and consistent experiences in the 'ville, and as the seasons change over, the staffing tends to roll over as well, leaving service completely up in the air in most places. If you don't mind going ten minutes down the road to the main street in Stayner, Fud is the best local dining experience I've had in recent memory.

    2. Two places to definately skip...Tholos, Greek in the Village... ridiculous prices...crappy food....miniscule portions...surley service..ate there 2 weeks ago tonight and it has to be in my top 5 horrible dinding experiences ever. The next night we ate in the town of Colingwood at Tesoro which is the #1 rated Italian resto in Collingwood. Reviews on other sites compare it to Terroni. Place is very pretty, very crowded, and the service was very friendly and attentive (my daughter was cold and we did not have a sweater for her...waitress brought hers out and wrapped it around my daughter's shoulders). Food however was extremly disapointing. They adverttise the pizza as "thin crust gourmet" and charge about $15.00-$20.00 per invidual pie. 3 of us oredr pizza and when it arrives it has been made on a pre-made, Bobli-like, crust...shocking. Didn't want to complain to the waitress as she really was pleasant. Decided to call the owner upon my return home. Expplained to her that we had an enjoyable evening, however we were very surprised that the dough was not fresh-made. She was shocked to hear my complaint, saying that her clients love the pizza and that her kitchen is just to small to handroll dough. Skip this place for sure.
