You may know by now that we love to share our favourite local businesses with you.

It’s more important than ever to support the local business owners in our community.

After all, our local businesses play a large role in making Ontario such a vibrant place to live.

Shopping locally brings our community together and helps businesses that might be struggling to thrive.

This time, we’re shining a spotlight on the wonderful Porch Light restaurant and bar in the charming village of Elora.

Escape the Hustle and Bustle at Porch Light in Elora

Porch Light in Elora offers a cozy escape from the daily grind. It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind with a handcrafted cocktail and delicious food made from fresh, local ingredients.

We’ve been patrons of Porch Light for five years now, and the staff is always friendly and welcoming. From the second you step through their doors, you can tell how much they care about their customers.  

Porch Light offers an extensive cocktail menu with some classic drinks as well as specialty cocktails that you may not have tried before.

They also offer unique Detroit-style pizzas with a thick, crispy crust and a variety of toppings. And many of the pizzas can be made vegan – there’s something for everyone at Porch Light! 

First Time at Porch Light? 

We recommend stopping by Porch Light for a night out with friends or to celebrate a special occasion. They offer wonderful charcuterie boards and platters for any occasion. Visit on Sundays at 7 pm to enjoy live music sessions, or pop in on a Tuesday evening for a fun trivia night.  

If you’re visiting Elora from out of town, you may also want to check out Porch Light’s Airbnbs for a cozy place to stay near the bar and restaurant. 

Porch Light can host groups of up to 35 people – consider having them host your next event or rehearsal dinner.

Lindsay Beare

Hearing Care Coordinator Lindsay grew up and went to school in Waterford. As a hearing care coordinator, she is a key part of the team and is responsible for many aspects, including scheduling appointments, processing payments, and billing. What makes Lindsay’s role so special is that she is the first point of contact when you walk into the clinic. With each patient, she always tries to make them smile and feel comfortable, ensuring they are briefed with everything they need to know before their appointment. While Lindsay loves the patients she serves, her favorite part about her role is how close and wonderful the team is. From day one, Lindsay immediately felt welcomed and supported. This made the transition into her role very easy and allowed her to connect deeply with her patients and team members. When Lindsay is not at the clinic, she loves to paint, hang out with her kids, boyfriend, friends, and family. She also loves doing DIY projects.
