Awful Breakfast
Apr 2019 • Pasangan
Went for for breakfast with a friend. Over cooked eggs, undercooked, mushy, grey breakfast sausages, boiled potatoes, not even browned for home fries. The toast was good. Waitress didn’t even inquire if there was a problem when she took away my plate of hardly eaten food.

With my Polish heritage, Friends' cabbage rolls and sausage soup special was right on!

Stayner bills itself as the “Town of Friendly People” so it stands to reason that there should be a “Friends” restaurant in this town just a short drive south of Collingwood.
In fact, Stayner's “Friends” is a “pub and grill” located in the heart of the downtown where you will find more second-hand/consignment stores, per capita, than I have seen in any other small Ontario town. I tell you this because if you are going to eat somewhere, it's also beneficial to know about some other aspects of the community.
Close to “Friends Pub and Grill”, in the few blocks long area of Downtown Stayner, there are second-hand shops and a couple of parks. One park is located at the east end of the downtown. During the warmer months, there is an organized schedule of entertaining events held at that park. The other park is located a block to the north.
“Friends Become Family Here” is a sign which hangs over the opening, through which they pass plates to the dining area, at the Friends' pub and grill. It's possible that they bought this entirely-appropriate sign from the Billy Hill Pine store, just doors away on Main Street. At the Billy Hill Pine store, they have the largest offering of wooden signs – most with catchy sayings carved into the wood – that I have ever seen. They also lived up to the town's motto, when we visited there before heading to Friends for lunch. The Bill Hill Pine shop staff were friendly.
Our association with Friends Pub and Grill started last February when we attended a fund-raising event in Stayner which was held by the Collingwood Agricultural Society. Not only did they have a guest speaker from the nearby Duntroon Cyder House and a delicious roast-beef dinner, they also had a silent auction. It was at the latter, that I was the successful bidder for a gift package from Friends Pub and Grill. The day to use this certificate toward a lunch came this week.
When you enter Friends in Stayner it puts you in mind of “Cheers”, which used to be a popular television show. Friends has a large window which abuts the nearby sidewalk and overlooks the main street. There are tables throughout the restaurant and three television screens, playing sports when we were there, on a wall above a bar area.
Dianne McEachern was busy with a new employee Aurora as we arrived and they offered us anywhere to sit because at that point the restaurant was not crowded. It was 11:30 a.m., and we picked a table close to the big, front window. They too were friendly, took our drink orders and a few minutes later our lunch order.
The special that day was on a whiteboard on an easel close to the front door. We had a choice of homemade vegetable and sausage soup, together with either cabbages, or a meat pie. The sign noted that we could substitute an item for French fries.
As we sipped our coffees we looked around. A couple was sitting at the nearby bar watching television and sipping their drinks. On the other side of the restaurant, close to a Canada flag artwork on a wall, one man sat eating his sandwich. To the right of the kitchen area was a nook with doors to the washrooms, his and hers; both were spotlessly clean.
I was checking out local promotional material, maps and guidebooks, on a counter by the door when a woman, who had just entered the restaurant, gave me a cheerful greeting. Turned out to be Lily White, who used to operate Cedar Pond Bed and Breakfast just south of Stayner. Now, she's working with Clearview Township, in which Stayner is located, helping to promote tourism events such as the wildly-popular Small Halls Festival. We exchanged pleasantries and she headed off to have lunch with some other ladies who had arrived. I headed back to have my lunch.
The slightly-spicey soup was delicous, chock-a-block with hearty vegetables and they did not skimp on the sausage slices. The cabbage rolls were good too, but I think a couple of slices of red beets, or some of that Polish red beet salad you can get at Loblaws, would have been an added, nice touch. The two coffees cost $5.00. The cabbage rolls and soup, for two of us, cost a total of $24.00. We decided to share a dessert and the apple crumble with vanilla ice cream was presented to us in friendly fashion and two spoons. The dessert cost us $4.99.
As we finished our lunch and it was noon the restaurant was filling with customers with good-natured chitter-chatter here and there. What else would you expect in the “Town of Friendly People”?
When it came to paying, my gift certificate from the agricultural society's event reduced the price by $25.00. I thanked Dianne McEachern for supporting the local agricultural society which annually sponsors the friendliest fair in Ontario, the Great Northern Exhibition (the 164th annual GNE will be held next September in Clearview Township).
As we walked away from Friends, an lady approaching us on the sidewalk turned out to be Judy Ferguson who too enjoys Friends Pub and Grill. Further down the street, a fellow washing windows at a real estate office was friendly. So too was a fellow enjoying a stroll with a walker on the sunny side of the street. They all said hello.
It was clear from the cheerfulness of people, as well as the many posters on store doors and windows, that there is a lot going on in Stayner. While at Friends Pub and Grill, I spotted yellow-printed tickets for the Stayner Kinsmen Duck Race coming up in May. I bought a couple of draw tickets and noticed other community supporters – Mark and Adrianna Ruttan – had their business card on the back of the Kinsmen's draw tickets.
We walked both sides of Stayner's main street window-shopping after our lunch at Friends. Then, we came across something else that makes a community friendly....honesty. On a small display table in front of a pet-food shop, alongside some bags of bird seed, was a set of keys attached to a blue Craigleith Ski Club lanyard. We picked up the keys and went inside the store to alert a clerk there that somebody had forgotten the keys. The clerk told us that he knew about the keys. They had been left on the table in the hope that whoever lost them – perhaps then shopping downtown, or having lunch at Friends – would find them. That's honesty for you in a friendly town!

Great breakfast!

Stopped in to grab a bite of breakfast late morning. Had an excellent western omelette complimented by the best toast I've had in recent memory. Service was a little flat.
