Addison's Restaurant

Home cooking, friendly service in the heart of Addington Highlands

"I have been dreaming about doing this since I was 14 when I got my first summer job in a local restaurant...
"And I love this area. I am usually so busy that I don't get a chance to really appreciate the nature and attractions around here, but I do like living here. My parents cottaged up here forever, so it's not like I am new to the area. I was very happy to see that this restaurant was located in an area that I already knew and already enjoyed coming to. The pace is more laid back and the people are so friendly. It's great."
