The little gem you may want to keep for yourself !


Did you ever want to take a trip to Central Europe without leaving Canada?  It is possible in a culinary sense  especially if you visit the small town of Smiths Falls, Ontario where you will find a hidden gem. 

With the hussle and bussle of everyday life sometimes we have to sit back and enjoy ourselves whether it be going to an art museum, heading to the cottage or going to a place where you leave you troubles at the door. I have found just that place situated where no one would ever expect it to be. It is a step back in time that provides you with a blend of German and Hungarian true down home atmosphere and food.

When most people go out for lunch or dinner and are tired of the same old boring food, you usually head to the internet to find that “some where” that you have not been or is getting awesome  restaurant reviews. Trip Advisor, zomato and Menupix are great sites that usually give you online information on menu and current reviews of restaurants just waiting for you to discover them. One such restaurant is “My Place” which serves lunch and dinner and seats approximately 30/35 people and gives off a European atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door. I have been to Germany along with Hungary and the food at My Place is authentic European prepared without question!



I have attached a link to one of their sites as follows:


Their house soup is made fresh daily which is called Madras soup with myself not being much of a curry lover it is more than just a curry soup. It is made with apples, mango, apricots and coconut milk on a cold wintery day it is either great for lunch or an awesome starter to a evening dinner.

I have attached the following link to their house soup recipe:


The restaurant is owned by a husband and wife team and usually has one waitress and one kitchen staff assisting them in the evening. The owners have not lost their European accents which gives the restaurant that extra little touch. One of the biggest issues is deciding on which dish you would like to order. The wait staff are very informative on how the dish is prepared and with what the dish actually is. The average cost of lunch is not much more than grabbing a burger, fries and a drink at a fast food outlet. As for dinner for 2 it can range from $25/30 to $40.00 in total depending on whether you can make a decision on ordering one or two homemade desserts each. All food is prepared for you so do not be in a hurry.

Well worth the drive to a little town restaurant located at 2 Main Street West, Smiths Falls, Ontario. Make sure you bring your appetite!

  1. Cheryl, my family has a cottage just outside of Perth and really there’s only one or two places to eat in town (outside of ice cream!) We’ll definitely check this place out – that chocolate cake looks delicious!

  2. Good afternoon Laura
    It is their made from scratch Black Forest cake…It is just around the corner from the Rexall on the main street. I have never had a bad meal there and between friends and my family we always go away with either a doggie bag or we wear expandable pants! They do have debit available now. Bon Appetite!

  3. Now you have me hungry! i wish I was closer or I would definitely give it a try! Thank you for including the recipe. I am always looking for new things to make and have been having some success with soups lately (except the time when I forgot to soak the beans overnight before adding them)

    • Good Morning Liz..
      Thank you for your reply. The recipe is very easy to make the apples top it off and give it that little extra zing. With a nice homemade hot biscuit fresh out of the oven…that comfort food just do not tell the family it is healthy..
      I hope you enjoy the rest of the course and best of luck for your future in Social Media.

    • Good morning
      If you live close enough you should look up My Place it is awesome and the portions are XXL with great quality. Thanks you for your reply..Best of luck for the rest of this course…Cheryl
