Benjamin's


Took some of my favourite work chickies out for din-dins this week a few miles down the road in St. Jacob's village. They wanted to shop, but it being a week night in a God-fearing town, they were S.O.L. Put a few nose prints up against the shop windows until we decided we were hungry enough to find a patio and get the vino flowing.

Not much open on what is clearly theme night "Ghost Town Wednesdays". Except for Benjamin's. Gorgeous bountiful oversized flower baskets everywhere we turned, and even though the patio was off the main street, the lush fragrant decorations lured us in.

Mostly light meals, salads, double appetizers, some pastas and fish. Chick food, I suppose. Decent California red and some VQA whites by the glass.


Uber garlicky and wonderful caesar salad loaded with fresh grated parmesano accompanied by the goat cheese strudel parcel topped with real fresh cranberry compote. Did a Sauvignon Blanc on the side (Chilean, sadly... as the VQA Vineland Estates Riesling I really wanted was the semi sweet, not the citrusy dry j'adore so much).
Would recommend a return visit. Patio was pretty quiet and casual. Inside looked like it could be a little more of a dress up kinda place.
