Bleu Turtle
215 St. Paul Street West
St. Catharines

The Bleu Turtle is located on St. Paul Street West, and it’s actually pretty easy to miss, but driving by would be a mistake, because this unassuming little bistro is where you’ll enjoy one of the best breakfasts in St. Catharines. You will find fresh produce, local ingredients and bread that is baked fresh daily.

Chef Robby has cooked in Western Canada, Australia and was once the executive chef at The Restaurant at Peninsula Ridge Estate Winery. Eventually, he started Bleu Turtle Catering, which soon evolved to also include the Bleu Turtle Bistro.

The restaurant is open Wednesday to Sunday, from 8am to 2pm, and if you want to make sure you’ll get to try some of the amazing food, make a reservation by calling 905-688-0330, especially if you plan on going on a weekend.
