Perth, on the Tay River and home to events like free, annual Stewart Park music festival July 20-22, is made only better by this bakery and lunch spot. Bustling during the noon hour on a recent Saturday, the wood-floored bakery with the red front door features an open kitchen, a dozen tables and treats like rich raspberry cheesecake and very cheesy cheese tea biscuits made with trans fat-free shortening. Also tap: bread, a cornucopia of other baking including cakes and pies, gluten-free goodies and a salad bar and lunch menu.

Bonuses: Seasonal outdoor seating overlooking the river. Check out the Perth Musuem in Matheson House a National Historic Site, at 11 Gore St. East; it features period rooms and a relaxing garden.

Directions: Highway 417 west. Take exit to Highway 7 west and follow into Perth. In town, turn left on Wilson Street, left on North Street and right onto Gore Street. About 80 minutes from downtown Ottawa.
