A local restaurant focused on using local ingredients – can it get much better than that? B&B serves a variety of menu items that accommodates everyone including vegetarians/vegans and don’t forget to join it for happy hour (their cocktails are fantastic!)

Za Pizza Bistro

It’s the Subway of pizza – you get to customize everything including your dough, sauce, cheese, and toppings. Za serves more than just pizza, be sure to try its wings and especially the desserts.

Charito Bakery

While it may not be local, it is the first and only in Canada. This Ecuadorian bakery was established in 1978 and everything is baked fresh in-house serving all kinds of menu items from European to American and more. 

It doesn’t stop there – some more local favourites coming soon to Sage Creek are Santa Lucia Pizza and Banana Boat! Santa Lucia Pizza is a local favourite for Italian and/or Greek food. Banana Boat will satisfy that sweet tooth of yours with its large selection of ice cream and desserts!

It wouldn’t be a community without a few chain restaurants that we all know and love such as McDonald’s, Subway, Pizza Pizza, Tim Hortons, Mary Brown’s Chicken & Taters, Freshii, Edo Japan, and coming soon is Dominos!

Beyond its kilometers of retail space, Sage Creek has over nine kilometers of trails to go for a nice walk with the entire family. These trails were constructed with crushed limestone, which creates shock absorption for running and walking and doesn’t reflect as much heat to make it cooler for your pets. The Nature Trail features a variety of activities along the way including log-to-log lunges, stepping stones, and a willow tunnel. Along your routes, you’ll come across multiple playgrounds where each one is different and some even offer exercise equipment for adults/teens. Parc Ron Duhamel Park is the perfect spot for outdoor activities such as a toboggan slide in the winter, sports such as basketball and baseball and multiple events such as a Canada Day Celebration and Movie Night in the Park.
