After a relaxing day at the beach, famished families and cyclists head down to Beacher Café to let loose. This popular easygoing hotspot, affectionately known as The Beacher, offers mouthwatering affordable comfort food in a soft jazzy atmosphere. Life is a beach at this joint!
Hours spent outside work up an appetite. Luckily The Beacher’s menu is filled with massive hearty portions perfect for sharing. Fresh PEI mussels are drenched with white wine garlic tomato sauce, while bruschetta is smothered with fresh tomatoes, herbs and melted goat cheese. Homemade hummus, flavoured with lemon, garlic and tahinni, is served with a generous portion of grilled pita bread. On The Beacher’s tasty lunch menu discover your favourite sandwiches plus Greek specialties such as the chicken souvlaki. Not to be missed is the homemade 1/3 lb extra lean Beach burger loaded with lettuce and tomato on a toasted sesame seed bun. Meat lovers are in luck here. Veal parmigiana, a 10 oz New York sirloin, and traditional baby beef liver doesn’t disappoint. Among the standouts is the 9 oz. Salisbury chopped steak loaded with sautéed mushrooms and gravy.
Become an early riser
Every morning at 8:30 a.m. sharp, regulars head down to The Beacher for a gigantic breakfast for under $10 a pop. If you’re not an early riser, this joint’s dinner menu still offers a bang for your buck. Among the standouts is the share-worthy stone baked gourmet pizzas topped with grilled chicken, sun dried tomatoes, smoked salmon, and soft goat cheese. Regulars love the homemade pastas such as the meat loaded lasagna, garlic drenched fettuccini Alfredo, and the vegetable stir fry in an oriental sake sauce. Finish off your fantastic meal with a cold drink on the patio.
