The Dining Experience at Chartwell Montgomery Village in Orangeville 

At Chartwell Montgomery Village, the recipe for your dining experience begins with fresh, quality ingredients. Then our food service team skillfully incorporates them into seasonal, from-scratch recipes. We strive for a balance of tried-and-true dishes developed for your taste, nutrition, and residents’ preferences, and new and exciting combinations to tempt your palate.

Imagine a featured daily dinner menu of your choice of cauliflower and cheddar soup or Mediterranean salad for a starter, followed by grilled beef skewers accompanied by saffron rice or potato wedges, heirloom carrots, grilled asparagus and sautéed mushrooms, topped off with a slice of sumptuous Tiramisu. We craft our menus on a seasonal basis, so you’ll never see a lunch or dinner feature repeated in a four-week period. If the featured menu isn’t to your liking, you can also order from our à la carte menu, with its diversified choice of crowd-pleasing entrées, soups, salads, sandwiches, fruit, and desserts.

Next, we add in a little spice of life with open seating in our beautiful, contemporary dining room, where the conversation is lively and the service is friendly. Topping it all off, our residents and staff look forward to themed nights, where celebrating a holiday, a cuisine and culture, or a special occasion is always on the menu. Residents are also invited to grab one of our freshly-prepared snacks throughout the day, perfect to enjoy with a coffee in our bistro.

We also welcome your guests, either in the main dining room, or for larger gatherings, and our private dining room is available for you to host family dinners.
