Branch Out and Eat Out:
Check out Creekside’s best restaurants, all within a short walk from your hotel doorsteps. Load up of sweet treats, fresh bread, and a well-deserved full belly.
You must swing by Ed’s Bread for the best Vegan baked goods and bread you’ve ever tasted. Each treat is formed from a sourdough starter and baked with love. Open Thursday to Sunday, 9AM to 3PM; they often sell out, so try to swing by early. Start your day off right, step outside your hotel and just down the stroll, Ed’s Bread is waiting. Pick a unique twist on the classic cinnamon bun, focaccia bread or beautifully baked sourdough loaves. Pre-order or stop by in the morning to check out which freshly baked goodies they’re serving that day!
Who doesn’t like a big, hearty breakfast to start the day off on the right foot? If you’re a breakfast lover, you must visit the Southside Diner. They’ve got everything from classic Eggs Bennies, Huevos Rancheros, Stuffed French Toast or if you’re feeling extra Canadian, give the Breakfast Poutine a try. Open daily from 8AM to 3PM; stop in to load up before an adventure-filled day. People often say breakfast is the most important meal of the day; with a menu this good, you can’t go wrong.
Creekside’s favourite Après bar is Dusty’s Bar and Grill; it’s a local's staple stop. Indulge in their famous Caesar’s as the perfect appetizer for the main course, anything BBQed. Unfortunately, Dusty’s Bar is closed during the Creekside Gondola upgrade project (fall 2022). Not to worry, it will be waiting for us, and their team of professionals is itching to get back on the grill.
For a meal quick and on the go, you can’t go wrong with Creekside’s Samurai Bowl. Just a short walk down the road from Lodging Ovations, your meal can be ready in 15 minutes. Their menu consists of Ramen, DonBuri, Poke bowls, various sides, and Bento boxes.

The Perfect Lake Dip
A good day should consist of tasty food, sunshine, excellent people, and lake hangouts. Creekside is the hidden gem of lake hangout spots.

However, Lodging Ovations is just a short 10 min walk from the lake spot. The best cure post-bike ride is a lake dip to soothe the muscles.
