Johhny’s Pizza Shelburne
There are so many conventional style pizzerias that deliver right to your front door. They all pale in comparison when it comes to Johnny’s Pizza on Main Street in Shelburne Ontario. Some of the finest crusts and homemade sauce that will tantalize your pallet. Sam puts a lot of love and pride into those circular masterpieces. You can taste the difference ladies and gentlemen. Definitely a place that has given historical pizzerias in the city of greater metropolitan Toronto a run for their money and then some. I absolutely love the supersize with double cheese pepperoni onions mushrooms and pineapple ladies and gentlemen..! Absolutely fantastic service, cordial employees and the owner cares about every pizza he sends from that location. Excellent delivery service..

Hyland Fish & Chips
Crispy delicious and just the way you like your fish and chips. I’m a sucker for great fish and chips and Highland F&C on the corner of Highway 89 and 124 in the town of Shelburne is no exception. Whether you’re heading up to the beach in the summer or up to your snow chalet’s with your family skiing in the winter or just want to bring it home, Highland fish and chips is a great place to pick up that ready to go take with you classics. Some of my favourite are the fried clams or the fisherman’s platter. I could take that to the bank then down to the dock then back to the bank again.. wonderful service and a nice family environment.

Thai food par excellence when it comes to the Orangeville area. This wonderful family run business has been in the bustling little community of Orangeville for a long time. Fast and wonderful service. But don’t let that scare you. Some of the most tastiest dishes that you can find in our area. Located just down in Orangeville South 88 is a go to for me for just about anytime I’ve got that craving for Pad Thai. I can’t resist those beautiful vermicelli noodles in that tangy sauce with tofu chicken and shrimp topped with beans sprouts and peanuts. Another must while I am there is the squid.

This awesome location nestled in one of the most unsuspecting locations in the town of Orangeville has some of the most fantastic Caribbean food around. Mrs. D is a fantastic person and the salt of the earth. Would do just about anything for her clients. Walking into that place is like walking into a location in Jamaica. Fantastic drinks from the West Indies including one of my favorite, peanut punch. I love their roadies as they are so juicy and tasty and Mrs. D puts a little extra love and care and to every rap she makes.
