Here in Sudbury we never need an excuse to indulge in a delicious meal and have a good time. With our hot culinary scene and hundreds of exciting restaurants to explore in the city, it's easy to make any day a special occasion. We've rounded up just a few of Sudbury's amazing restaurants to add to your to-do list.  

Cedar Nest

Once a petite corner café, Cedar Nest has now grown into an elegant fine dining experience. Still offering the tastiest quiches and butter tarts at the café-side counter, an exquisite weekly dinner menu is now being served at the new Cedar Nest. 

Weekly menu items this fall may include dishes like pan-seared fois gras torchon, Alberta lamb shank, and pumpkin gnocchi. Cedar's Nest could be one of Sudbury’s best-kept secrets.


La Fromagerie

La Fromagerie is a popular spot downtown Sudbury with unique artisanal sandwiches and homemade dishes made with specialty cheeses. Be sure to ask about the Grilly (grilled cheese) of the day. Trust us, this is not your average grilled cheese sandwich! How about crispy fried jumbo onion rings, four types of cheese, fried ham and spicy mayo on garlic-buttered rye? Yes please! 

La Fromagerie is not short on creative drinks or desserts either, try their wafflesicles or mason jar brownies, stacked high with whipped cream and fudge.

New this fall, The Fromo (as it is known to locals) is now offering brunch on Sundays. Here’s a sneak peak at the Grilled Cheese Eggs Benny: made on local rye bread with artisan cheese, the poached eggs are then smothered in a tomato soup hollandaise sauce and topped with arugula and sundried tomatoes.

Reservations for brunch are recommended by calling The Fromo.

Wander Food & Wine

Sudbury’s new chic lounge Wander Food & Wine offers one of the best wine lists in the city and a fabulous variety of tapas and desserts inspired by owner and chef, Stephanie Piche’s culinary adventures across the globe.

Try the special this fall: Albondigas–mini meatballs in a Spanish-style smoky, slightly spicy tomato sauce. Served with toasted baguette for dipping. 

For dessert, don’t miss the ever-popular Damn Good Toast–dark chocolate toast with olive oil and sea salt. If you’re lucky you might catch the rosé poached pear on the occasional menu, slow-poached in a dry rosé wine with ginger, cardamom and a hint of cinnamon.

Apollo Restaurant

Celebrating 50 years in 2020, the Apollo is definitely a Sudbury gem. A warm and welcoming family-style Greek restaurant. Start your meal with the saganaki (flaming haloumi cheese) to really get the Greek experience and get ready to shout opa

If you're craving a traditional favourite this fall, the Greek souvlaki dinner or the cedar-plank salmon will never disappoint. 

Stop in at Toula’s Market on your way out to take home some Greek favourites including the Apollo’s own olive oil.                                                        

Stack Brewhouse

Find some of the best BBQ smokehouse dishes in Sudbury at Stack Brewhouse. Many dishes are infused with the award-winning line up of Stack beer. Check out the pulled pork sandwich, the Brewer’s Burger, or the inventive Brewben–fresh brisket from Tarini Bros, IPA infused pickles, and fresh in-house made/blended sauerkraut and Russian dressing, on rye bread from Sudbury’s Golden Grain Bakery.  

Still can’t decide what to order? Stack’s infamous Nashville hot fried chicken sandwich has been so popular on the weekly feature menu that it has moved to a permanent slot on the full-time menu.  

Optimist Brewery 

Sudbury has a new brewery in town! Optimist Brewery & Kitchen, located in the South End, is currently brewing six fun and unique flavours of beer and offering a full menu to accompany them.

With a variety of locally-sourced meats, locals will be happy to hear Tarini’s porchetta and lamb sausages made it onto the menu. Check out the Optimist Lamb–Tarini’s lamb sausage with house-made blueberry ginger sauce, red onions, and grainy beer mustard and topped with basil. 

The fun continues with house-made burger bowls that could rival the best burgers in town. Two quarter pound “Optimist” beef patties, cheddar, caramelized beer onions, tomatoes, pickles and chipotle aioli all stuffed in a house-made sour dough bowl bun. The bread bowls are made daily by Optimist’s on-staff baker who uses the spent grains from the beer-making process to bake all bread items including the buns and pizza dough.

Whether you're visiting or a lifelong resident, get out and experience Sudbury’s local restaurants. Dine-in (safely) or take-out, try a new restaurant, a new dish, a new beer. Bon appetit!
