Restaurants open during COVID-19 (Cambridge)

This post is to highlight and show support for restaurants in Cambridge (Ontario, Canada) that are open (for takeout and/or delivery) during the Covid-19 pandemic. I’m a Galt resident and I started with downtown Galt initially. Thanks to everyone adding comments on other #CBridge restaurants open!

Being listed on this page is not an endorsement…

September 2020 update: with most restaurants back to allowing eating indoors again, I’m removing the “options” (takeout, delivery etc.), unless the restaurant is only takeout.

    Jen, Joel Cook who owns Old Marina Restaurant on Puslinch lake has been amazing through Covid.. day one he donated all inventory to the food bank and now he does great take out and produce baskets at very reasonable pricing. He wants to know how to get added to your list of take out restaurants. How should we proceed?

    1. Jen Kuntz - April 30, 2020

      I love Old Marina! I’ll add it to the page when I get a chance!
