Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner at the beach 
You intend to spend your vacation on the beach at Lake Winnipeg (Eastern Beaches), but you want to enjoy your holidays and don’t necessarily want to spend it cooking for the whole family? Especially if you have rented a cottage for your stay. We recommend checking out the Idle Thyme Restaurant. The Idle Thyme Restaurant is at the corner of Hwys 11 and 59, called Traverse Bay Corner. It is extreemly family oriented – kids are always welcome. The only problem is that it is hard to see from the road and the entrance is often covered by a big brown truck that belongs to the Traverse Bay Store.

The restaurant is right behind the Traverse Bay Store and gas station. The Idle Thyme Restaurant (Homepage)

No matter whether you want breakfast, lunch  or dinner the Idle Thyme is open 7 days a week and during the summer months till 7 pm. If you want to spend the day at the beach, why not order a lunch box at the Idle Thyme? Just call 1 to 2 hours ahead of time, or the day before and they will have it freshly prepared for you by the time you pick it up. That avoids waiting time.

Lunch boxes for the beach are becoming more and more popular, as it takes the responsibilty for cooking from the vacationers and cottage renters and places it in the hands of professionals. Let the staff at the Idle Thyme do the job for you, so you can spend a glorious day at the beach, without all the hassle of planning what to pack to feed the family.
