(Port Credit)

Port 229 creates authentic, homemade dishes prepared with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. The owner’s shops at local markets, including farmer’s markets in Port Credit and around Square One. 229 Bar was a late night joint that was directly beside Port 229 that occupied a modest space that offered authentic Central American cuisine. 

Closed: June

What took over: VOY Jamaican and Diallo’s

Yoyo’s Yogurt Cafe

(City Centre)

Yoyo’s is a Canadian company established in 2010 in London, Ont. and a frozen yogurt chain that expanded rapidly in 2013 when Cineplex acquired 50 per cent of Yoyo’s Yogurt Cafe, making the majority of their locations throughout Canada inside movie theatres. 

Yoyo’s Mississauga is located on the ground floor of the Capital Condominiums on Living Arts Drive, walking distance from Celebration Square (making it an ideal pit stop to cool off after a Celebration Square event). There are a few outdoor areas surrounding this location where you can enjoy your custom-made frozen treat, including City Hall’s Jubilee Garden right across the street or the Community Common Park about half a block away.

Closed: May

What took over: Nothing

West 50

(City Centre)

Some of you might have forgotten poor old West 50, the Sussex Centre gem that was pulling nightlife seekers long before &Co and Bier Markt set up shop in City Centre. If you’ve been partying elsewhere, remember your old friend and its spacious patio and impressive selection of 50 on tap beers. Unfortunately before it closed down they changed it to a martini bar which probably lead to its demise.

Closed: March

What took over: Nothing

Odai Sushi


Odai Sushi, was a small Heartland-area gem hidden in a Britannia plaza. Odai first opened in 2010 and quickly attracted a loyal customer base. The restaurant set itself apart by offering uniquely personal service. The owners always remembered regulars (and their orders) and augmented their delicious offerings with complimentary appetizers. The resto recently made insauga.com’s Top 5 Under the Radar Japanese Restaurants list.

Closed: May

What took over: Nothing
