Looking for a great place to eat with a spectacular view of the airport runway, a friendly inviting staff, along with a warm and comfortable atmosphere?
The Edenvale Aerodrome has consistently been growing adding new runways, taxiways, ramps and most recently, the restaurant, Bistro 26. On June 15th, the Bistro opened their doors and began serving up moderately priced whole foods coupled with an extraordinary view to top it all off.
Originally owned by Base Borden and now owned by Milan Kroupa or better known as ‘the Visionary’, the Edenvale Aerodrome has gone through many different transitions in order to reach the brilliant stature that it holds today. Milan purchased the 380 acreage about eight years ago.
“Milan opened the restaurant so that his pilots would have a great place to relax and eat while also building opportunities for everyone to be on board,” explains the restaurant manager, Fiona Brownhall. As a businessman with several ventures on the go and owner of United Cleaning Services, this is where Milan chooses to sit down, unwind and enjoy a tasty bite to eat.
The unique location of the restaurant overlooking a four kilometre fully lit runway draws people in from all around. It’s a beautiful place to fly from with easy access to the Georgian Bay shore, close to the longest fresh water beach in the world, Wasaga, the Blue Mountains and breathtaking central Ontario farmland.
The menu is diverse at the Bistro featuring many locally sourced foods and the chefs are more than happy to accommodate nutritional needs or special diet requests. “We have to be adaptable and work together to figure out what people want to eat,” says head chef, Dennis Thornton.
The Aerodrome also features full fuel services for anyone looking to gas up their aircraft, as well as hangers for those who wish to rent out suitable storage for however long they may require it.
Drop by the new Bistro and enjoy their delicious menu while watching the airplane activity from their spacious patio or inside for a more formal environment. Or you may want to check out their first offering of live music on August 3rd from 7 pm to 10 pm. Too Nice is a reggae band under the influence of Jamaica, Barbados, Southern California and the Canadian Shield (www.toonice.ca). See you there!
