Breakfast from Sunrise Griddle in Bowmanville, Ontario

Sunrise Griddle

If you’re looking for classic breakfast dishes with a twist, you’ll want to stop into Sunrise Griddle.

This family-owned and operated all day breakfast restaurant serves up homestyle dishes, and they’ve even got a full gluten-free menu for my gluten-intolerant friends!

Try their Apple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Crepe or their Spicy Butter Chicken Omelette (which isn’t spicy or saucy, but still good).

They’ve even got Pumpkin Spice French Toast available on the menu for fall!

LOCATION: 1550 Bowmanville Ave, Bowmanville, ON


Toasted Walnut

Toasted Walnut is a homey café and bakery right in downtown Bowmanville that’s perfect for brunch or lunch.

They serve up daily lunch specials and freshly-baked pastries like scones and butter tarts.

Their café has a modern farmhouse vibe, and it’s super cute!

LOCATION: 7 King St. East, Bowmanville, ON


Takeout burgers and fries from Talk of the Town in Bowmanville, Ontario
The Manslaughter and Double Homi Burgers and Sucio Fries from Talk of the Town.

Talk of the Town

Formerly a food truck, Talk of the Town occupies a teeny tiny spot on King Street in downtown Bowmanville.

They serve up juicy smash burgers and fried chicken sandwiches, as well as sides like Egg Rolls and Sucio Fries (so good, and they don’t skimp out on toppings).

The burgers are absolutely incredible, and spicy for the Chicken Sandos truly means spicy (but it’s oh-so-good).

Prices are also quite fair, with sandwiches ranging from $7 to $15!

Order ahead for pickup on Uber Eats for a couple extra bucks, or you’ll be waiting an hour for your food amongst other impatient customers.

There’s no seating inside, but you can bring your takeout over to Rotary Park and have a lil’ picnic!

Loaded Pierogi in Toronto

Loaded Pierogi

Loaded Pierogi is an amazing Toronto-based pierogi chain with a few locations across the GTA, including in Bowmanville.

Their pierogis are literally heaven on earth, no lie.

You can choose between boiled or fried pierogis, and toppings like BBQ Brisket or Butter Chicken.

You can find them in the Clarington Shopping Centre!

LOCATION: 2377 Durham Regional Hwy 2 Unit 216, Bowmanville, ON


Junior's Handmade Sourdough Pizza in Bowmanville, Ontario

Junior’s Handmade Sourdough Pizza

Stop by this food truck on King Street for their handmade sourdough pizzas (the dough is amaze).

You can either choose from one of their signature pizzas, or build your own pizza with unlimited toppings.

I’d personally build my own pizza as the toppings on our Jerk Chicken & Pineapple Pizza were pretty sparse.

Their Famous Dill Pickle Pizza is on my list to try though!

I’d recommend calling ahead and ordering for pickup to make it quick and easy.

LOCATION: 181 King St. East, Bowmanville, ON


Three Six Kitchen & Lounge

If you’re looking to visit a nicer spot in Bowmanville, you’ll want to pay a visit to Three Six on King Street.

They use fresh and local ingredients for their contemporary fusion dishes, including everything from their Fried Turkey Schnitzel Sandwich to their Spicy Shrimp Spaghetti.

There’s also a good selection of cocktails, beer, and wine if you’re in the mood for a drank!

It’s the perfect spot for a date night in Bowmanville.

LOCATION: 36 King St. East, Bowmanville, ON


Chanterelle Bistro

Another casual fine dining restaurant to visit in Bowmanville is Chanterelle, where you’ll find French and Italian-inspired dishes.

From Ricotta Cheese Gnocchi to their Lobster Risotto, they’ve got tons of delicious dishes to choose from.

They’ve also been around for almost two decades!
