We came back in October and got the same great burgers we had in the summer! They stayed open after the other places closed down for the season. Excellent food! MMM! (That's why there's a line up dummy) Excellent friendly service! (That's why we don't mind the wait) Great prices for Algonquin Park area. We'll be back next year!

Bjornboggner, that's why we stayed open later, just for people like you! Thanks for the great 5 Star review. It makes all the hard work and long days over the summer worth every minute. See you back again in 2017! Cheers ~ Randy More

A great place place, for a quick bite or ice cream treat, while camping at MewLake. Good quality foods, excellent service, with grocery goods next store. An all in one shop stop with Algonqin flare. Well done Jerry and Staff.

There is two parts of quality to the food. The stuff cooked on site by the friendly staff are great and reasonably priced. Someone in HQ has decided that certain things such as the sausages and potatoes for example will be pre-cooked and warmed to save cost presumably. The difference is huge, so go for a nice coffee and bagel... More

GreatLakesroaster, thanks for your 5 star review. We are happy you enjoyed your visit and really appreciate your honest feed back. I will be making sure that "Someone in HQ" sees your review and has the opportunists to make changes to the full breakfast menu. Hope to see you back again next season. ~ Randy More

Good place to stop even if you are just driving through the park. It is roughly half way through the park. You can grab some food if you like...we just stopped to pick up a few souvenirs for our grandson. Prices are reasonable and staff was very helpful and friendly.

Kevin, thanks for taking the time to leave a review, hope to see you back though the park again soon. Our Oxtongue Lake (just west of the park on highway #60) is open year round, they have souvenirs, camping gear, skis and snowshoes there in the winter. You can ski the cross-country trails or snowshoe hike to a waterfall in... More

There are few lunch options in the area and we stopped because we were starving. It was very busy and looked like a tourist trap (like a food joint in an amusement park where you have little to no options hence competition) but I felt motivated to write a review to let people know: their food is really good! It's... More

With the fall colours at their best, we got an early start from the west gate of the park and drove until this stop for breakfast. Fabulously friendly staff, and a pretty big breakfast menu. We both chose the full eggs breakfast and it really hit the spot. At $8.99 it was not the cheapest, but it was good, and... More

The best grilled cheese I've ever had! We camp in Algonquin at least 3 times a year, both developed and backcountry. If it rains we always stop here for grilled cheese! On hot days you also can't go wrong with Kawartha Dairy ice cream!

Who can resist Kawartha Dairy ice cream while enjoying summer vacation in Algonquin Park?. Miwelsh, have you ever mountain biked the Old Railway Trail which departs right from the Lake of Two Rivers Store and Cafe? It's a great way to work up an appetite! More

Thank you for your 4 star review Tender0. I always like to ask what would have made it a 5 star review for you? Oh the Cheese Cake, I've had that cheese cake too, it's always hard deciding between it and ice cream or my favourite Bill's Carrot Cake. Hope to see you back again soon. ~ Randy More

The Lake of Two Rivers Store has a great assortment of fresh produce and fruit, fresh and frozen meats, dairy, groceries, drinks and ice. Don't forget your Algonquin Park souvenirs too! The store also features a full range of camping and fishing supplies from the best brands in the biz. The new Cafe & Grill is serving great gourmet coffee as well as hamburgers, french fries, pulled pork poutine, wraps, fresh salads and more healthy and gluten free options than ever before! Get a scoop of your favorite flavour of Kawartha Ice Cream or cool down with a milkshake! Mountain bikes are available for rental at the store. All of our bikes are mid to high end products from great brands like Specialized and Salsa, they are available in a variety of frame sizes and include a helmet in the rental rates. We also rent youth bikes and Trail-a-Bikes for the early years riders. How about a trailer for the infant or your extra gear? We rent those too! The Old Railway Bike Trail is easily accessible from the Lake of Two Rivers Store and is a great way to see the park from a new perspective!
