The first thing you think of when you enter Country Cookin’, a small mom-and-pop eatery in the West End, is “simplicity.” Sparsely decorated and furnished, the place resembles a small cafeteria with its plain tables and chairs and order counter. True to its name, most of the décor is rural in theme, with a farm mural across one wall and crafts adorning various shelves along the opposite wall.
Country Cookin’s menu consists mostly of sections for breakfast, sandwiches, burgers and entrées. It contains most expected kinds of foods at very reasonable prices. Familiar favourites include the beef dip sandwich au jus, chicken fingers, fish and chips and burgers of various kinds. As sides to your meal, fries, mashed potatoes, onion rings and poutine—all homemade—are available. Every day a sandwich, dessert and entrée is featured. The choice of entrée tends to be something not on the menu at all, which is unusual for most restaurants. The breakfast special is on until 11 a.m., although breakfast is served all day and includes omelets, pancakes, steak and eggs, French toast and other standards.
Note: Make sure to leave room for desert. A popular choice is the homemade apple pie with vanilla ice cream – hard to go wrong with that. It is excellent, with a thin crust and lots of flavorful filling.
