Nuttshell Next Door
A LITTLE ABOUT US
Balancing the pull of local food and the values of experience, Chef Jay Nutt and wife Jennifer MacKenzie run a European style café with a small village ambiance. Their small independent business thrives on their creativity and dedication, along with the support of knowledgeable and caring longtime staff.
Before falling in love with the Kawarthas, Chef Jay worked at Jasper Park Lodge and Toronto’s King Edward Hotel and visited at restaurants in San Francisco and Europe. His unique food philosophy combines an innate respect for fresh and interesting local ingredients with an appreciation of classical cuisine.
The cafe menu features fresh gourmet soups, salads, sandwiches and other delectable lunch options along with baking, desserts, salad dressings, and chutneys prepared onsite. A display fridge features gourmet lunches and dinners ‘to go’ including house-made soups, many of which are vegetarian, dairy-free and wheat-free.
