Ever wonder what your small town has to offer? Well Lindsey Edwards (Lindsey Edwards, Royal LePage ProAlliance Realty) and I have teamed up to spotlight local businesses in our hometown of Cobourg, Ontario. Each week we will feature one business and all that they have to offer you, whether it be food, alcohol, clothing, spa services or alcohol (oops did I already say that?) whatever they have to offer, we will be there to show you. The first business up this week was the wonderful and friendly GEORGE and ORANGE Taproom and Kitchen. Where could you find such a place you ask? At the corner of….you guessed it, George and Orange. The quaintest little place you ever did see, “where everybody knows your name” (sing that to the Cheers tune). The owner Jenna Fitzgerald will make you feel like you’ve known her for years and that you’re right at home. This place offers cocktails, craft beer, yummy meats, cheeses, and even duck wings (yum yum). Thanks to Matt and Ben. Feel free to see her menu below. Much of her beverages and meals are purchased as close to home as possible as Jenna loves to support local. As soon as the Farmer’s Market opens up, she will be there. When we asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, right away she said she wanted to be a Marine Biologist, but at 17 years old Jenna went into the hospitality business and has made this her amazing career instead. Jenna opened up this past December and wanted a little something that didn’t ‘feel like Cobourg’. Once you’re inside you just feel so cozy and welcomed you won’t want to leave. Jenna is overwhelmed with all of the love and support she has received from the local community. Without Kay and Steven (the previous owners) and other local businesses encouraging and supporting her, she wouldn’t be where she is today. Just to spice things up (keepin it real) we wanted to ask something personal. So Jenna….”what colour is your underwear “…..Jenna takes a peek “navy”. And to top it off when she’s not eating out 4 nights a week(often at Craft), she’s at home eating Mr.Noodles. Now you know a little something about Jenna, she loves food, people, and wears navy underwear.
George and Orange Taproom and Kitchen is having their grand opening on February 10th and 11th and will have some yummy drink specials. Head on down early, this attractively unusual little place holds 40 people so it will fill up fast!!
