Timberlane's Home Cooked Menu

After listening to you, our guests, we have decided to adjust the menu a bit more this year. While our custom made-to-order breakfast will stay the same, dinners will vary to make the best use of fresh, seasonal ingredients. This year we have switched to new, hormone/antibiotic-free local beef + pork for improved flavour and nutrients. Check out Manitoulin Meats to source the farms your entrées are coming from. The weekly fish-fry and BBQ will continue as usual as well as Thanksgiving Sundays. We hope you will love the changes and look forward to serving you our famous recipies here at Timberlane!

Our Fully-Loaded Breakfast...

Our country breakfasts will have you ready to face your day of fishing, swimming, exploring, sight seeing or even for doing nothing at all! It starts with freshly baked croissants or muffins or cinnamon buns!

For the health conscious We have a selection of fruit juices and cold cereals, or you can try our famous Timberlane hot multi grain cereal. New! You can now have yogurt with fresh seasonal fruit for a yummy start.

For all our Guests You have your choice of eggs cooked-to-order served with bacon or sausage, home-fries, and toast.  We also have a western omlette with or without cheese. Or you can have buttermilk pancakes with bacon or sausage, served with butter and real Manitoulin maple syrup made right here at Timberlane.  Or have both!

We also make sure we have lots of freshly brewed coffee ready for you or a selection of herbal teas if you prefer.  Our friendly staff will be sure to make your morning a good one!

Our Farm House Country Home-Cooked Dinners 

On Saturday, we have a BBQ down on the breakwater.  We start with a happy hour, so you can get to know your fellow guests if you like.  Then we grill up some great steaks just the way you like, aged beef that melts in your mouth.   Along with your steak, you can choose from baked potatoes with all the trimmings, caesar salad, pasta salad, and Betty’s (our chef) famous baked beans.  We always get rave reviews!  For dessert, we have chocolate cake made from scratch, along with Farquhar’s (Manitoulin's local creamery)vanilla ice-cream. 

Every Sunday is Thanksgiving at Timberlane.  Start off your meal with fresh baked bread, and garden salad picked right from local Manitoulin gardens.  Then out comes the roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and fresh steamed peas.  Don’t forget to try the old family recipe stuffing.  Dessert is Timberlane Cranberry Cheesecake with chocolate drizzle.
