DUtch boys chocolate
For this Fab Food Friday, we are featuring Dutch Boys Chocolate, located in Kingsville, Ontario! This delicious and mouth-watering chocolate shop offers everything from truffles to medallions and even 3D creations. With so many flavours to go around, Dutch Boys Chocolate has a lot to offer, even when it comes to the way they started making their sweet creations.
Here’s their story:
After two retired Dutch men by the name of Cor Boon and Henry Noestheden met at a friend’s dinner party in 2012, they began to learn of one another’s business and creative experiences and share that neither one of them was enamoured with the concept of remaining retired.
While giving their full attention to the design and production of what they wanted to put out to the world, they created a new line of hand-made chocolate confections and truffles.
With their 3rd year anniversary just passing in May of 2020, The Dutch Boys are still going strong in creating and producing amazing and tasty creations for their community.
Serving up tasty Greek food, submarine sandwiches, chicken, salads, fish and more, Tina’s Sub and Gyros Store is the best place to stop in for a delicious bite to eat with your family and friends. Located on 11899 Tecumseh Road East in Tecumseh, this little Greek shop offers a variety of Greek dishes at a great price. Despite COVID, they are still available for takeout services while working on their regular hours, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and closed Sundays. Trust us, you are not going to want to miss out on their mouth-watering gyros, salads and baklava!

Offering locally focused foods with the highest possible quality, when owner and operator Adam El-Dika opened Whamburg in November of 2020, he knew he wanted to provide his community with unforgettable burgers, fries and shakes that the whole family would love.
Located on 401 California Avenue, when El-Dika and his team first opened Whamburg, they wanted to become the only restaurant in Windsor that served solely smashburgers and offer a unique touch to their food and brand that was easily recognizable.
Offering burgers, fries, shakes, sandwiches and plenty more, Whamburg is the place to be for all your wholesome comfort food.
“We want to become an iconic fixture of the culinary scene in Windsor-Essex and the number one burger joint in the city and one day the province,” shares Owner Adam El-Dika.
Open from Monday to Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m., this is the place to order from for all your smashburger needs.
sugar spoon bake shop
For five years, Owner of Sugar Spoon Bake Shop Loredana Froio has been putting in her own little spin on all of her sweet creations. With a burning passion for creating, Froio incorporated her love for baking with the business degree she obtained at the University of Windsor and decided to take a plunge into opening her own bakery.
“My inspiration was wanting to have a place that people can walk in and find fresh and delicious hand made baked goods that they can pick up on the spot without having to place an order,” she shares. “From my personal experience I always remembered getting invited to a dinner or friends house and just wanting to pick up a box of treats to bring and there was never anywhere to go besides the grocery store.”
Offering macarons, cupcakes, cakes, cookies, brownies, vegan options, and many assorted desserts, the options are never ending. “At Sugar Spoon, you can find a LOT! Most people are most surprised but how many different things we offer on a daily basis,” she explains. “For example, everyday we have 12 flavours of cupcakes, brownies, five flavours of cookies, scones, butter tarts, 10 flavours of French macarons, carrot cake slices, cannoli, lemon and custard cream horns, dessert cups, tiramisu cups, three kinds of bars, five different types of keto desserts, five flavours of vegan cupcakes, packs of mini cupcakes, and extra cakes in our cake fridge at the front of the store for people who need a cake in a hurry.”
Located at 3131 Forest Glade Drive, Sugar Spoon has become a gem in the community for so many people. ”We have so many regulars. We have that wonderful vibe where we know a lot of our customers names and what they want even before they ask for it,” she shares. “People know that our baked goods are homemade, every element is scratch made and they can taste that.”
