New Cottage-Inspired Restaurant Opens in Burlington

There’s a relaxed new eatery in Burlington and it’s perfect for cottage lovers.

You can’t miss the Muskoka chairs.

Or the name — it’s a familiar one from Port Carling.

Loondocks is now open in Appleby Village, which means there’s another rooftop patio in the ‘hood (the New St. and Appleby Line area).

It’s a casual fine dining experience and the menu features fresh, local creations.

Popular starters include the Beet and Warm Goat Cheese Salad ($12) with heirloom beets, candied walnuts, and aged balsamic and the Duck Confit Poutine ($14) with oka.

There’s also Baked Brie ($16) with triple cream brie, cranberry compote, toasted almonds, and herb crustini, while the Venison Sliders ($18) feature prosciutto, crispy leeks, and dijon aioli.

Casual must include sandwiches, right?

Well, there’s quite a few options: Turkey Avocado, Duck Confit Melt, Craft Veggie Burger, Angus Burger.

Mains feature Mac and Cheese, Chorizo Gnocchi, Arctic Char, and Steak Frites.

A vegetarian and vegan menu is available upon request.

Service is friendly and the decor is super chill, complete with an antler chandelier.

The resto opened about four months ago.

It’s an option worth checking out if you’re looking for a new spot to dine in the city.
