Let’s not forget the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the best cup of tea on this side of the Atlantic Ocean! We always have coffee and tea available to our residents.

Open Seating and Expanded Mealtimes

At The Grand Canal Retirement Residence, we are proud to provide open seating in the restaurant. This enables everyone to enjoy their meals with family or friends without feeling rushed or crowded. The restaurant also offers extended mealtimes to avoid having a regimented meal schedule, meaning residents can stay as long as they’d like.

Post-Dinner Nightcap at the Pub

Continental Breakfast

With the cozy atmosphere of the pub, make plans to meet friends for pre-dinner cocktails as you decide what your taste buds are craving for dinner. After dinner, enjoy a nightcap with others while you make plans for the next day’s adventures. Choose from the pub’s wide selection of fine wines and spirits.

Start the day on the right side of the bed with a full continental breakfast of fruits, pastries, baked goods, toast, tea, oatmeal, cereal, or coffee in the bistro section. Sample the fresh food selection while gazing at the natural beauty of the area, known as a top pick for retirement living near Font Hill, Niagara Falls, St. Catharines and beyond.
