Urban Eats @ Ste. Anne's Spa

Hip & Urban Girl is back from a stellar mid-week getaway at Ste. Anne's Spa in Grafton, Ontario.  Here's a sneak-peek of some of the hearty spa cuisine we indulged in after a day of massages, steaming and hot tubbing.  The lamb and the beef were both free-range with  roasted vegetables and either mashed potatoes or rosti.  I was really looking forward to this three-course dinner which was part of our spa package.  It was so nice to not have to worry about the cost, taxes or gratuities.

Lamb Trio - Chop, Sausage & Leg
Other Eats - We also enjoyed chocolate tea and Balzac's gourmet roast coffee in their spa waiting room.  This warm and gorgeous sunroom was full of over-sized couches for napping, reading and lounging.  Spa-ing can make one peckish.  The mini cups of nuts, apples and biscotti around the spa were a nice touch.  Afternoon Tea is also available from 3-5 PM and Breakfast is served in the morning with continental and hot options until around 9:30 AM.  I really dug their homemade yogurt with granola and honey drizzled on top.  
Chocolate Banana Crepe
Apple Maple Souffle
Water & Wine - Ste. Anne's Spa Village is also equipped with fresh spring water which runs from every tap.  You'll needs lots of it to keep hydrated post-massage and especially after spending time in the sauna.  The dining room does not carry alcohol, but guests are able to bring their own bottles of wine and serve themselves.

Full report with more pics of the resort are coming soon!

  1. Hey Lisa,
    I didn't know you were visiting. I am glad that you had a great time. :-) It is always nice to see an urbanite truly indulge and 'get' the Ste. Anne's experience. Thanks for your web coverage.
