Just off hwy 17, this cafe offers full course cuisine rarely found in this part of Ontario. It certainly is one of the only fine cuisine restaurants we found between Sudbury and Dryden. Lovely setting, quietly romantic. For those wanting an early start, the downside is they don't offer breakfast. The but upside is they provide continental breakfast when you... More

We were so surprised to have the meals at Serendipity turn out so wonderful. My Sweet Hubby had the bakes trout which of course was perfect. I had the most beautiful artistic Greek salad --as it was brought to the table everyone in the room were awestruck at the beauty. (I wish I had taken a picture.) The salad was... More

Recommended by the person who runs the Red Rock Interpretive Center (also great). The chicken was unbelievable. As was the Greek Salad and the desert and the soup! Happened to be there the night they had live music by a Manitoba duo. Great surprise.

Maybe I just a picky customer, but I wasn't that impressed with the Serendipity Café. They have large portions, but I just thought their food was average. My meal was a large salad and one small, grilled chicken breast. This cost something like 25$. It was ok, but this wasn't an outstanding meal. The staff was nice. I think Serendipity... More

The service was good and the food was very good. They give you about twice what you can eat. I thought that the prices were a little high but they have a captive market as there aren't any other restaurants within 20 miles. I would stop here again if in the area.

We drove down into Rossport just to check it out and discovered this darling, eclectic cafe across the road from Lake Superior! We decided to go in for lunch. The couple who own it have been there 28 years and he built the cafe which is a beautiful example of woodworking! I had the spanakopita and Greek salad which was... More

This is the only restaurant in Rossport, we rented 3 rooms from Serenpidity so we decided to give the restaurant a shot. The cooking was just wonderful, it's like your mom is doing the cooking. The portions are huge, we ate there 3 times in a row and never managed to finish our plate off. The staff was super friendly.... More
