Breakfast In Collingwood, Sort Of

John and I love to go out for breakfast on Sunday mornings.  Today, we really discovered something different that I’ll bet few people know about.  We ate at the airport.

collingwood-airportCollingwood’s airport is actually located in Clearview which is another story in itself.  In the terminal, there is a little cafe called Beyond the Clouds where the proprietor, Doris Lajoie and her daughters serve up fabulous home cooked meals from Thursday to Sunday every week from 8 am to 2 pm.

We sat by the big bank of windows where we watched the little planes come and go including the air ambulance that landed for re-fueling and breakfast.  I assume no patients were on board!  The helicopter was parked just about 50 feet from our window providing a unique view for our breakfast this morning.

There is an extensive all-day breakfast menu with everything from yogurt, fruits and eggs to pancakes, sausages and French toast.  The cafe is immaculate and it’s kind of neat to listen to the chatter from the likely long retired pilots relive their airborne stories. 

Beyond The Clouds Cafe is yet another one of Collingwood’s little secrets now revealed.

    Marg – is it only breakfast they are serving until 2:00 p.m. or are there lunches served as well??? I’ve never heard of this little gem – I will have to give it a try!

    Thanks for the reminder Chris. I forgot to say that they also offer traditional German meals such as schnitzel, red cabbage, rouladen, etc for lunches! It is a gem and nobody I know even knows about it outside of the aviation community.
