👉 Some fun Fish & Chips history: Fish and chips first appeared in the UK in the 1860s, and by 1910, there were over 25,000 fish and chip shops across the UK. By the 1930s there were over 35,000 shops, but the trend reversed and by 2009 there were only approximately 10,000. The British Government safeguarded the supply of fish and chips during the First World War and the Second World War and it was one of the few foods in the UK not subject to rationing during the wars.

A COMMUNITY CLASSIC: Dino's Fresh Food Deli
King Street, Downtown Midland
When I first arrived in this area, one of the first restaurant recommendations we got was to this amazing deli: Dino's Fresh Food Deli! You instantly feel part of the "in" crowd when you go. Always full of happy faces and full bellies, the lunches are crowd pleasers. They even cater to any office party or get together. Plus, it's been recently renovated and adorns Georgian Bay art and historical photos of the area on its walls. Be warned, enter hungry! You'll need an appetite!
Insider's tip: Get a half pasta salad/ half garden salad side with all the fixings and you'll thank me later! oh... the butter tarts are pretty awesome too!
Mom's Restaurant in Midland
A Community Classic
Meet Jeff Pauig Turqueza, a server at Mom's and the awesome cook staff that work so hard behind the scenes. Jeff was an incredible server with an incredible story. He was welcomed in this community about two years ago because his wife found a job in the area. He's happy to now call this community home.
You can always count on some good food, great coffee and the perfect way to start your day. Comfort food at its finest, the restaurant bursts with locals, seasonal residents, long-time couples, first dates and families.
Cheers to many years to come as a classic community local spot!
