We’ve been inside so long, so grabbing some takeout and heading to a beach or lake is the cure for this forced hibernation.

Here are a few spots around Cadboro Bay Dental, where you can grab a bite and relax in the fresh air.

Lemongrass Restaurant was an instant favourite when it moved into the village. Known for their exceptional Thai food, they have a welcoming atmosphere and an experienced and attentive staff. Their take-out is expertly done and can be eaten at Cadboro Bay Beach, around the kitchen table or on the couch watching a movie. 

Olive Olio’s Bistro & Espresso has been a staple for decades. They have decadent pastries, made-to-order sandwiches and soups, and their coffee will have you coming back. Their patio is the perfect place to catch some rays or grab some salads and a few treats, and you find the sun anywhere you want!

Matsuki-An makes stellar sushi so fresh you’ll think you’re near an ocean! Whether it’s just you or a party, Matsuki can make your sushi dreams come true. We suggest considering the Flower Plate for take-out. It’s healthy and refreshing and the perfect thing to eat as you watch the waves roll in or a brilliant sunset.

Jusu Bar is where you go when you want to feel extra healthy. With an arraignment of cold press juices and smoothies, you can’t go wrong. To fuel you up for a hike, grab an organic smoothie bowl; plus, they also sell full cleansing kits if you’re looking to jumpstart a healthy kick.

The mainstay in Cadboro Bay is, of course, Peppers. Not only do they have a lovely array of local food and groceries and they have a top-shelf grab-and-go section. Sandwiches, salads, burritos and grab a cookie and kombucha while you’re there!
