Reviewed 2 September 2013

The Ancient Cedars covered our wide range of nutritional needs. Our Vegan had choices!!!! Our vegetarian who avoids gluten was thrilled with her choice, our burger and fries gang wer happy, Happy, Happy! I LOVED the beat dressing on my salad. Food was delish, service, excellent and very accommodating. We love fresh and interesting food and there was such variety here. We strongly recommend Ancient Cedar Cafe.

“Excellend vegan/vegetarian options!”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Great choices for vegans and omnivores. I went 3x in one week while visiting the Tobermory area. Had Bibimbop (sandwich) with onion rings, then tried the sweet potato & black bean burrito with ceasar salad, and finally had the Kung Pao sliders with potato wedges. The garlic dill sauce was wonderful drizzled over the wedges and onion rings! The service was great the first two visits from the same waitress. There was some confusion with menu items/specials on one visit, but everything was sorted out quickly:). Lots of parking, close to Tobermory, and dog friendly patio.

“Really great food and service”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We ate her twice on our stay in Tobermory. First we had breakfast on the way to the park. Everything was locally sourced and super fresh. We also had a late lunch here and it was also super good.

Staff were incredibly friendly. Our server gave us some great tips on some of the off the beaten path spots in the park to check out.

“Great Place to eat with AMAZING Vegan / Vegetarian Options”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We stopped in at the Ancient Cedar Cafe yesterday afternoon to check it out and we were truly amazed with all the great healthy vegan food options available + a lovely patio area to enjoy the beautiful Bruce sun. Most places these days seem to have a veggie burger on the menu but we were blown away with numerous options to chose from including sweet potato and black bean burritos, vegan caesar salad, bulgogi sandwich, kung pao sandwich, and a veggie burger. My wife and I decided to split both the sweet potato black bean burrito and kung pao sandwich on a ciabatta bun both of which were GREAT + they came with a side caesar salad, all for $8.59 each (AMAZING deal for great tasting, fresh, healthy food served in a great atomsphere). Shawn the owner was very friendly and great to chat with, the wait staff were very friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and very fast. We're hoping to buy a cottage just down the road from this Bruce Peninsula gem so here's to many more meals together.
