Came here on a Saturday afternoon, had to wait for a table but could go to playground until a table was ready—just perfect for us! The grilled pork chops are gastronomic perfection in juicy, thick slices.

Had supper here last Saturday night before the races at Varney. Food was excellent and unlike most buffets, was full for hours. Dinner for 2 with beverage and tip $70.00 but totally worth it.

Description
Homestyle Mennonite Buffet! Pebbles Family Restaurant is a family owned business located in the small village of Varney ON, just south of Durham on Hwy 6. Take a break from the long hours of sitting as you ride to the cottage or ski resort. Enjoy the soft gospel music while you stuff yourself at our Homestyle Mennonite Buffet. Start by fixing yourself a salad just the way you like it, add a homemade roll with apple butter and a bowl of soup. Round two you can load up at the hot buffet and order something from our grill attendant. Finish with a delectable slice of our homemade pies or make yourself a soft ice-cream treat. Extend the enjoyment by taking a whole pie, homemade muffins, homemade butter tarts and other baking with you on your journey. Oh, and don't forget to try some FREE samples of our fudge! Come here in the middle of the day to talk business in a relaxed atmosphere. Drop in on a scorching summer afternoon for a refreshing ice cream cone. Warm yourself on a blustery winter day with a hot coffee and a homemade muffin or butter tart. Amaze your family or business with a Christmas dinner in our separate conference room. Treat your friend to a birthday dinner (birthday meals are free!*) Pebbles Family Restaurant is committed to providing a wholesome, refreshing atmosphere that gives a break from the racking pace in life and prepares you to face the world again. God is here, as he is everywhere, but somehow you can feel it more when you are in this place. *With purchase of one meal at regular price, ID required.
