Warm, intimate and casual, Niagara Street Café is richly decorated in dark woods, soft lighting and tile floors. Accented by glowing candles, soulful music whistling away at a lull and warm autumn colours, the quirky mismatched wooden chairs and other seemingly salvaged yet perfectly conditioned furniture is as soothing as it is comfortable.
Menu items include pork, scallops, fish, steak and a wide array of vegetarian options. Niagara Street Café’s dinner menu also has its staples. Dishes are reliably updated or changed depending on the season, maintaining the curiosity and anticipation of regular customers. Still, even those expecting something new still must have their perennial, permanent favourites such as the homemade Pappardelle, a pasta dish with shredded duck and roasted mushrooms. Niagara Street Café is perfect for a quiet meal, but is also a good choice to host groups and/or create one of their selections for those needing take-out.
Not unlike their menu, Niagara Street Café’s extensive wine list proves the eatery to be well stocked and versed in quality. The knowledgeable staff is always keen to recommend one of the robust, affordably priced wines to accent a meal. Possibly more popular than their already-adored dinners, is Niagara Street Café’s infamously popular Sunday brunch. Featuring its own resident item (eggs benedict served on buttermilk biscuits) and others, it is certainly a local favourite.
Space: There is room for 30 patrons on the patio.
Reservations: Are recommended. Locals swoop down on this haven quickly.
