Mahtay Café & Lounge draws inspiration for its menu and community-focused philosophies from the ancient, healthy yerba mate customs of South America's Guarani clan. Following centuries-old customs, baristas brew the tribe's traditional tea-like beverage inside a gourd, pouring the concoction alongside modern coffee drinks. Local farmers proffer fresh produce for the café's soups and salads, which highlight a smattering of vegetarian and vegan-friendly dishes. Smoked salmon and apple jam fill sandwiches, and Upper Canada Niagara Gold cheese and local prosciutto crown flatbreads and pizzas. Mahtay Café & Lounge fosters a haven for the local creative community, peppering its walls with an extensive stash of locally produced artwork. To further bolster the eclectic ambiance, the eatery regularly hosts events that focus on literature, art, and Vincent van Gogh's good ear.:

Pita Pit, a casual, speedy eatery, specializes in handheld stuffed pitas, offering up a menu of Mediterranean- and deli-style sandwich options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Dining duos watch as pita pocketeers wrap up the chicken crave, a grilled-chicken-breast foundation fresh from the grill paired with lean black forest ham and off-the-block swiss cheese. For a classic Mediterranean-style meal, diners can dig into the seasoned lamb-and-beef gyro, greek-seasoned chicken souvlaki, or an edible toga. As a complement to savoury mouthfuls and silly straws, pita meals include either chips or two cookies, plus pop or specialty drinks such as Vitamin Water or Fuze. Like court subpoenas, breakfast pitas are served all day, including the jumpstarting Morning Glory, a bouquet of scrambled eggs blossoming in a meadow of grilled veggies and hash browns.

Mama's Pita Wraps entices eaters with a menu filled with souvlaki, gyros, and shawarma. The chicken sovlaki pita, gyro pita, and beef shawarma pita ($5.49 each) offer itinerant taste buds a tour of Mediterranean flavours, and buffalo chicken pita and the philly steak pita ($5.49 each) re-imagine familiar darlings of North American cuisine. Falafel, shawarma, and gyros sing edible arias on platter stages ($6.99–$8.49), each of which is enhanced by a chorus of rice, salad, and homemade hummus. For dessert, Mama's baklava ($1.79) hypnotizes patrons with its savoury, sweet flakiness and slow-swinging pocket watch.

Nick Tsangaris had spent 25 years in the culinary industry, feeding hungry diners from Greece to Canada at the restaurants he helped design. In 2000, he decided to bring some of his own favorite flavors over to Ontario, and so he founded his very first Souvlaki Hut in Mississauga. Nick knew that if he provided tasty, healthy food, his customers would return again and again—and he was right. His business model proved as strong as a gorilla-ox hybrid, and over the next few years, more and more Huts started popping up across the province. Currently, Ontario hosts about a dozen Souvlaki Hut locations, and they continue to multiply, feeding customers all over with pork, lamb, and chicken stuffed into gyros, sizzling on skewers, and atop fresh salads.

In Union Burger kitchens, culinary crews grill fresh, never frozen 100% Canadian beef burgers and pour poutine gravy over hand-cut fries. The menu brings an eclectic, often gourmet edge to fast food with quarter-pound Angus-beef hot dogs and grilled-chicken sandwiches. Visitors can stack hearty burger patties with any combination of more than 20 toppings, or opt for signature creations such as the Bourbon Street burger, topped with whisky barbecue sauce and caramelized onions; the Philly Cheese burger, topped with roasted red peppers and grilled mushrooms; or the Great Canadian burger, topped with peameal back bacon and cheddar. Whatever the meal, a thick milkshake or a classic fountain drink washes it down in style.
