We've been to Cafe 13 a few times--it's a reliable place to pop into for local beers and huge burgers. The shoestring sweet potato fries have been perfected: deep-fried crispiness and just-enough saltiness.
I went with my sister and her fiancee just before they headed to the KW airport. I knew the burgers would keep them satiated until Calgary--though they weren't brave enough for the Dirty Burger (bacon, blue cheese dressing, carmelized onions and deep fried pickles). I had the Cajun chicken club wrap--only because I'd already had two burgers this week. The garlic pesto wrap is neatly and tightly wrapped and grilled with a good ratio of romaine greens, crispy bacon, aioli and chicken. Though, the chicken doesn't scream cajun at all.
The amber Cranberry lager by Railway City in St. Thomas had an agreeable tart, finish. If you are committed to drinking good beers, the bar staff are eager and keen to share the tasting notes of what they have on tap.
Be sure to go downstairs near the restrooms to check out the vintage photos of the 1974 flood that swamped downtown Galt. And, ask someone about the oddities of the cafe--13 bar stools, 13 bar taps, 13 whacks to the headless torso. Yes, there are ghosts, tall tales and superstitions alive and well here. And, the best burgers in Galt.
Evenings are best to visit the pub as it can feel too dark and somewhat depressing during the day.
*From an early December visit I can also attest to the rich and savoury goodness of the Welsh Rarebit on offer. Hot melted cheese and Mornay sauce on a baguette is perfect winter's eve filler with a Mill Street Cobblestone Stout.
