There are a lot of restaurants in Cobourg with a large concentration downtown. Today I walked along King street from Hibernia to Victoria Park and counted 18 restaurants although that did include some that would be better described as coffee shops. There are also at least another 6 nearby. Some are new and some are up for sale – a new addition is the Taste of Agra, an Indian restaurant which occupies the space formerly used by the Golden Chopsticks which moved a few doors along. I have listed them all below. The building housing the Matterhorn has now been listed for $899K with the statement that the restaurant is owner operated. I take this to mean that the current owner wants to sell the business as well as the building.
The Matterhorn building includes two apartments; they are each one bedroom plus a den and spread over two floors. One of them was recently offered for rent at $1325/month. The last time it changed hands was in 2014. The Matterhorn is not the only restaurant for sale since the Woodlawn is still up for sale at $2.55M. That is of course an Inn as well as an upscale restaurant. Although there had been rumours of its sale, the first time I saw a listing was in March 2018 (see Link below).
The new Indian Restaurant has caused a buzz – I’d guess it will be popular. They are now open from 4:00 pm for dinner but expect to have a grand opening next week and will then be open for lunch as well.
Another surprise – the building that houses a favourite meeting place and coffee house – 66 King East – is now on the market at $1,550,000, tenant occupied or vacant. If it were vacant, then Edward Cunnington would no doubt be retiring.
So here is my list:
|Mr. Sub||110 King West|
|Pizza Pizza||100 King West|
|Sakura Sushi (Japanese, Korean)||96 King West|
|Matterhorn (Swiss, Canadian)||95 King West|
|Golden Dragon (Chinese)||92 King West|
|Rustic Bean (Coffee House)||91 King West|
|Cobourg’s Coffee House (was the Human Bean)||80 King West|
|El Camino||74 King West|
|Subway||73 King West|
|Buttermilk||44 King West|
|Pat & Rob’s (Coffee House)||32 King West|
|Golden Chopsticks (Japanese)||26 King West|
|Taste of Agra (Indian)||20 King West|
|Dutch Oven (Coffee House)||7 King West|
|Black Cat (Coffee House)||4 King West|
|Corfu (Greek)||8 King East|
|Oasis||31 King East|
|66 King (Coffee House)||66 King East|
Nearby but not on King Street are also (not a complete list):
|Kelly’s (Pub)||Third Street|
|Cat & Fiddle (Pub)||Covert Street|
|Ale House (Pub)||Division Street|
|Craft House (The building housing this and Ken’s Loft is still on the market at $1,050,000)||Division Street|
|Marca’s (Italian)||Division Street|
This report only includes Downtown, primarily King Street from Hibernia to Victoria Park. If you count all of Cobourg, there are a lot more. See the Town’s list in the link below. They have 83 listed although some are counted twice since they fit more than one category.
