We decided to have dinner at The Early Bird, which was kind of a cool place with absolutely enormous portions. The food was okay, not spectacular, but quite good.
Then we decided to walk a little bit around London as it is unlikely we would ever come back. Of course it is impossible to get a good picture of a city based on just couple of hours, but it was very quiet, had a nice food market, but otherwise was kind of bland and nondescript. We could’ve been anywhere.
Some of the areas were shabby and some reeked of wealth, but I think that happens in almost every city.
From London we drove to Guelph. It was in our original plan and we had a hotel booked there, which was quite nice. Guelph was somewhat smaller and prettier than London. We also walked around town, but it was so hot that I started feeling sick, so we had to go back to the hotel for a little while.
We stopped at the Wooly Pub because, you know, craft beer. 😉
We had dinner at the strangely named Miijidaa Cafe + Bistro, but the cocktails and the food were amazing. Pizza was one of the best I every had, so this was a good choice for dinner.
We also stopped to get a couple of other local craft beers with us at Brothers Ale House.
I liked Guelph better than London and it is a good stop if you’re in the area. We stayed in the Western Hotel & Executive Suites, which was more like an apartment than a hotel room. It was very clean and comfortable, but there was some noise from the street during the night and we did need to carry our suitcases up the stairs to the third floor.
