Learning Guelph #StepBiteStep: Taste deTours

Planet Realty Inc.Downtown Guelph

taste detoursThe age old frustration with not knowing where to go for dinner; or getting stuck in a rut of frequenting the same places time and again for fear of branching out and being disappointed; has met its match in Guelph’s Taste deTours.

The new way to explore Downtown’s exceptional offerings is To The Core, a comprehensive lunch tour that stops at some of Guelph’s finest eateries, bakeries and artisanal shops. Launched in October, this tour stops at some well-known Guelph favourites: Ouderkirk & Taylor, Wellington Cakes & Atmosphere Cafe + Etc. But it’s also a chance to indulge in some newcomers like Eric the Baker & Miijidaa Cafe + Bistro. This all-in-one tour begins on Friday and Saturday mornings at 11:30, and wtakes just over 2.5 hours to complete, finishing between 2 & 2:30 pm. Weekday & weekend availability means that any and all can partake in this delicious experience together.

Lynn Broughton, the founder of Taste deTours, spent 8 years with Downtown Guelph, promoting the shops, restaurants and great events that take place in the core. This new venture has spawned from a passion for all things downtown; and a lifetime love of food, events & tourism. As a certified Food Tour Professional, not only do you have a tour guide who is passionate about the material, but one who also has the skills and polish to provide a top-shelf experience as well.

In addition to the “To The Core” tour, the “Little Bites” tour stops at some of my personal favourite places downtown for a twilight engagement. In this smaller tour, you’ll again find Ouderkirk & Taylor; plus two of Guelph’s premier establishments in Bin23 & Babelfish Bistro, before winding up at the Woolwich Arrow pub (affectionately referred to as “The Wooly” by locals). A Thursday evening tour, this sets the table for a perfect night out in the core, for girls’ night, date night, or just because!

So, the next time you’re starved for ideas, let Taste deTours enlighten you to the variety of tremendous local options at your fingertips. And if you’re in town to learn the area in consideration of relocating- there’s no faster way to get a crash course on Downtown Guelph than to spend an afternoon with someone who knows it better than anyone.
