The Story of Our Little Cafe

Chameleon Cafe opened in summer 2022. Provided with a once in a lifetime opportunity to turn an empty space into an inviting beach-front eatery, owner Dasha put her nurse status on a shelf, dusted off her hospitality education and background and, with vigorous research, dedication and a passion for healthy, homemade food and locally-sourced, fresh ingredients, created a cafe out of thin air.

 

Together with her husband Mark, the pit master of the cafe's signature house-made brisket and pulled pork, they were excited to join the vibrant community in Turkey Point. The amazing thing about a small town is how connected its establishments and people are, and the cafe strives to create the same welcoming and friendly atmosphere felt around the village.

 

Through growing their own produce and buying locally, both Dasha and Mark are firm believers in clean eating using wholesome ingredients, and they bring this philosophy to the cafe. Most menu items are made in house, including our signature sandwich sauces.

Like the chameleon, the cafe's menu changes throughout the day.  From delicious breakfast and gourmet coffee in the morning to healthy sandwiches, salads, and baked goods throughout the day, to the weekend late night menu, Chameleon Cafe has food and beverage options to satisfy all dietary needs, including dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan and keto. As a true healthcare professional, Dasha cares about the well-being of those she serves. A list of ingredients for each item is available any time. 

 

Being take-out only, the cafe prepares your made-to-order selections quickly and packages them conveniently for you to enjoy wherever your plans for the day take you.  Or choose from our daily grab'n go items to get you there even faster. All crafted same-day until we run out.

We are directly beside the historic Turkey Point Hotel and directly across from the main beach. Our patio seating provides a front row view to one of Ontario's most beautiful Great Lakes. So please come by and visit Chameleon Cafe, your go-to spot for delicious eats and drinks and a friendly atmosphere!
