Our Favourite Downtown Collingwood Food & Drink Options

The Collingwood food scene is popping fresh with award-winning restaurants, innovative chefs, and a buzzing, entrepreneurial vibe where anything goes.

Coffee

Coffee culture is alive and well here in Collingwood. These local gems are all within a 2-10 minute walk of the hotel. Fuel up on fancy coffees, 

Gibson & Co. Great coffee and pastries in a bright open space. Open daily from 8am. Turns into a cool, whiskey-fueled, speak-easy style lounge on weekend nights.

Petit Espresso Post. Right around the corner, this quiet spot has great coffee and baked goods. Find more bustle (and more baking!) at the main location on Huronontario, a few blocks away. Tues to Sat, 8am to 4pm.

Summit Social House. Coffee and bikes. Small but excellent menu includes yummy baking, Montreal bagels, and vegan grilled cheese.  Daily, 8am to 3pm.
