If you’ve always loved iconic Mississauga hotspot The Apricot Tree, you’ll be happy to know that its ambitious expansion renovation is complete. The Apricot Tree Cafe has always been a local gem and a staple of Mississauga’s food scene, in many ways because of its serene location and rich, decadent comfort food. About a year ago, the owners began moving into the space next door--formerly occupied by Starbucks--in the Sherwood Forrest Village plaza. The cafe recently opened the additional space (it can now seat about 100 people). The original Apricot Tree side opened recently and how houses a modern and chic open kitchen. The new entrance is now in the back, closer to street level, and there’s a new large patio that'll be perfect for summer dining. The new menu includes most of their favourites and some more elaborate dishes.
3) Union Social
Located in the northwest end of Mississauga by the huge Royal Bank building off the 401, is a non-chain restaurant called Union Social Eatery. The restaurant has an airy, open concept feel with a bar lined with large flat screen TVs that sits center stage. The lounge area is to the right and the dining area to the left. Everything is made in-house, including their signature sauces, in-house smoked wings and hand-cut Yukon Gold fries. You know a place is doing well when they open up their first location in Mississauga and then expand into Toronto. Usually it’s the other way around. This is the case for Union Social Eatery, who opened their second location at Yonge and St. Clair. They are doing something right along with dishing out good food!
