    Downtown Espresso Cafe: DON'T MISS REAL COFFEE

    by kris-t Updated Feb 17, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Downtown Espresso Cafe

    Looks like it's only one place in Am-burg, where you can get real coffee - not "brown wather" (Espresso, Cappuchino, Lattes etc. ). Believe me, Italian owner knows how to do your coffee the best way.

    Lotto Centre, Frozen Yogurt and more

    Favorite Dish: It's a pitty there is a construction near now time and many people miss this small cafe...

    Caldweel's Grant: Now open 7 days a week

    by kris-t Updated May 8, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    William Caldwell was an Irish National who immigrated to North America in 1796. He had been a member of Her Majesty’s Rangers in Europe, and subsequently became a captain in Butler’s Rangers when he arrived in the Amherstburg area. He became an Indian Liaison Officer for the British government. Caldwell befriended Chief Tecumseh, and fought alongside the Natives against the Americans in the War of 1812. He took a native wife, with whom he had several children.

    The building that houses Caldwell’s Grant was built in 1836 by a man named Bullock, who opened the premises as a tavern and inn. Since its establishment, the Old Bullock Tavern (designated historical building) has gone through many incarnations. It has been, among other things, an army barracks, a bank, a pet grooming studio, a flower shop, a tea room, a used book store, and an antiques shop.

    Favorite Dish: Fresh fish, seafood .

    Caldwell's Grant: Ambience and Local Wines

    Vintage Canada

    Living in the USA, I don't see a lot of Canadian wines in stores or restaurants, but they cultivate some very friendly vintages in Ontario, and a research trip to Amherstburg gave me an opportunity to see what a nice Canadian Pinot Noir tastes like. "Caldwell's Grant" is a pleasant little bistro on the main street in Amherstburg - I had some really nice fresh trout when I was here.

    Maries Good Home Cooking: My First Gravy on Chips

    by Stephen-KarenConn Updated Mar 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was obvious that this is a place many of the locals eat. Everyone here seemed to know everyone else, except us. Yet we were made to feel right at home.

    Favorite Dish: We enjoyed a tasty dinner of fish and chips. This is the first time I was ever served gravy on fried potatoes. Initially I balked and began to eat mine with only salt as I usually do. Then the waitress reminded me that I was in Canada now, so I gave in and poured the gravy over the chips. Yum, yum!
