I wanted to get take-out from Mercer Inn, but they no longer offer take-out. The Mercer Inn has a patio.
We decided to get take-out from The Hub. Nice people running it. It’s okay.
Nice rooftop patio that I have not tried, as well as a sidewalk patio.
Perch tacos were okay, pulled pork grilled cheese was better than the perch tacos. I haven’t figured out where to get better take-out in Stratford yet.
We ate at Braai House last year. My mocktail (Black Hole Sun) was the standout of the meal for me - possibly the best cocktail/mocktail I’ve ever had. The rest of the meal was kind of ‘meh’ and not worth the price. Service was poor (they were clearly short-staffed, so I get it) and two of the menu items I’d planned to order were sold out even though we were eating early in the evening after a matinee. YMMV, but we regretted not going to Bijou, where we have reliably good meals and service.
Thanks for your thoughts on Braii. I’m sorry to hear your meal was meh. It happens too often in Stratford.
I like Bijou. I haven’t been since 2019, since it hasn’t been open or offering takeout when I’ve been in Stratford. I only dine outdoors, so I’ve been limited to restaurants with takeout or patios since 2020.
I’ve probably dined at Bijou around 10 times since it opened.
We enjoyed a few meals at The Common in 2019. I haven’t been back , only because it hasn’t been open when I’ve been in Stratford. Mary Woolf, who ran Woolfy’s and Little Red’s in St Mary’s with her husband, was working there the last time I visited in 2019.
Enjoyed a quick lunch in Stratford today of two tacos - one chicken, one beef - at El Cactus Taco Shop, total cost was $15 + tax. Salsas and cremas tasted fresh but I could have used a little more heat.
I wouldn’t recommend going out of the way to eat here, but it’s a nice option when in the neighbourhood.
