Tell me About the Food
There are a large number of cafes and restaurants in the city with cuisine from all over the world, this is due to the immigrant and minority population. Start out with breakfast at Bright Spot Restaurant, they have been serving the local community for over 75 years. For the best in burgers Hutch’s is the place to go, try their ‘sportsmanburger’ then finish up with ice cream at Stone Creek Dairy – have the ‘super-duper sundae’ if you can squeeze it in! For a quick snack have chicken shwarama at Vida la Pita or visit My Dog Joe, a bohemian café with coffee and light snacks. Looking for something completely different – try the Buddhist themed Affinity Restaurant for spicy vegetarian dishes.

Where can I Stay?
