The perfect spot for lunch when exploring the Meaford area. Hearty, healthy food, generous portions, and friendly service. Pick up the mushroom tarts from the freezer (get more than one package because they get gobbled up pretty fast). Not fancy, so don't worry about not...being dressed for hiking. They do include the tip, but who can blame them as lunch goers tend to be cheap!! Well worth it.More

My wife and I visited The Kitchen recently in Meaford with our family. We treated. Our first visit. A reasonable lunch spot, clean, good food, friendly people and in a town like Meaford with a struggling economy, this kind of entrepreneurial business is most welcomed....Here's the stinger for me, and I'm a seasoned traveller and "eater outer" adding an obligatory 15% to the tab at the end of lunch + the loathed 13% GST (tax) makes eating here a second thought. Tipping is a practiced social custom in our culture. Tipping by tradition and definition is voluntary – at the discretion of the customer. When you assume a gratuity or tip without notice or option to your guests, particularly on a first visit, no matter how good the food experience, it leaves a bad taste – which makes one think twice about returning. I left The Kitchen feeling somehow cheated of my right and choice to reward good service and that's never a good thing.More

I's stopped in for a snack lunch - which was awesome! and we've booked catering for a dinner for 100, which went over very well at a local event. Recommend them for your lunch or special event.

We go to the kitchen often for coffee and snacks but had a nice lunch there recently. They have a varied menu of lighter lunch fare....no burgers and fries! Wraps, home made quiche, salad and baked goods. Service is always good. Recommend it.

The Kitchen has a friendly atmosphere with delicious food which is often unique. Soup, sandwiches, flatbreads, baking and more have ingredients that are fresh and creatively put together for a pleasurable, tasty experience. The catering kitchen is located at the back of the cafe so...the smell of great cooking is an extra bonus. The environment is a down home atmosphere -very friendly. Frozen food is available so you can continue this great experience at home.More

My mother and I enjoyed a very nice lunch at the kitchen today. The ambiance is cozy and welcoming. With such yummy healthy choices for lunch we couldn't decide. Mom had turkey rice soup which she loved ! And I had the kale salad was...amazing - I am obsessed. And grilled vegetables on focaccia which hit the spot. I had a gingerbread pumpkin muffin for dessert and mom had a date square. They have freezers full of pre made meals to take home which is amazing ! I love that you can see right into the kitchen and see the staff cooking . It has such a homey feel to it. Definitely recommend the kitchen. It's full of ❤️.More

Lunch at the Kitchen was a very pleasant experience. We had a hard time getting a table, but it was worth the wait. My sandwich was very tasty and my sister very much enjoyed her sandwich also. The atmosphere is cosy and the staff very...friendly. I would recommend this place very strongly. Everything is fresh and tasty.More

Megan is now the new owner of The Kitchen! We hired her to cater my birthday party for 50 friends. Megan welcomed my suggestions for multi-cultural food and came up with some delightful apps on her own. Satays, Gazpacho shooters and spicy shrimp were all...well received! Death by Chocolate brownies with raspberry sauce almost beat out the birthday carrot cakes! Our kitchen was left spotless and wait staff were extremely well organized! Can't wait for next year's Birthday!More
