The Apricot Tree Cafe Takes Over Starbucks
The Apricot Tree Cafe is a local gem and a staple of Mississauga's food scene by Franz and Esther Hochholdinger. They have recently taken over the space next door to theirs, formerly occupied by Starbucks in the Sherwood Forrest Village.
The Apricot Tree has evolved over the past 23 years from a predominantly dessert focused menu to serving many Austrian dish favorites at this quaint European inspired cafe.
The seasonal menu currently includes a number of hearty entrees such as schnitzel, braised short ribs, lamb shank, arctic char, crepes (savory and sweet), pasta, soup and salads, breakfast classics and specials and gourmet house made-desserts.
The expansion will offer more than double their existing space; include a larger patio that will occupy the entire back portion of the restaurant and a larger kitchen. The new menu will include most of their favorites and additional slow cooked dishes such as osso bucco, cog au vin, and tafelspitz. French fries will also finally be added to the menu.
The resto will remain open during the renovations expected to start later this month and in July (when the kitchen is under reno's) they will offer a smaller menu. The expansion is set to be completed by early August.
