The Dining Experience at Chartwell Tranquility Place in Brantford

At Chartwell Tranquility Place, the recipe for your delicious and nutritious dining experience begins with fresh, quality ingredients. Then we incorporate them into seasonal, from-scratch recipes that are a blend of tried-and-true dishes developed for your taste, nutrition, preferences, and new combinations to tempt your palate. One night you could be enjoying tomato and roasted vegetable soup or a Greek salad, followed by roast pork loin with pan gravy, apple chutney, herbed potatoes, braised cabbage and glazed carrots, finishing with a dessert of baked apples. Lunch might be a choice of cream of asparagus soup or spinach salad, with a main of honey garlic chicken wings.
