I realize dining out might not be on your mind as restaurants nationwide are required to shift their business practices as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. However, there's still plenty of history to be found, especially when it comes to food. Canada here are your unique stories regarding your oldest restaurant.
1. Newfoundland and Labrador - Woodstock Colonial Restaurant - The site of the Woodstock restaurant has history dating back to the 18th century. The topsail pond watershed was the place to water your horses on the long trip around Conception Bay. The riverbed was so lush and plentiful the Roman Catholic Topsail Parish chose the site for their clergy residence. Years later, Mrs. Emile St. John opened the original Woodstock Tea Room and guest house. That was in 1927. Over the decades, the Woodstock has changed many hands yet has preserved a way of life. One that dedicates itself to the marriage of Newfoundland cuisine and artisanship offering a wide selection of appetizers, soups, salads, steaks, pasta, and more.

2. Northwest Territories - The Wildcat Cafe - First opened in 1937 by owners Willie Wylie and Smokey Stout, it is the oldest restaurant in Yellowknife. The Wildcat Cafe is a vintage log cabin structure in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada and represents the mining camp style of early Yellowknife. The structure, which houses a summer restaurant, is located in what was then the central business district of the city. The building was saved from demolition in the late 1950s when a small group of Yellowknifers fought to have it protected as a heritage site. The Wildcat Cafe has become a popular local haunt that serves delicious burgers and steaks along with a slice of history. Have you ever dined at this restaurant?

Founder John Shippey was lucky enough to earn the first liquor license granted by the governor. The Split Crow Pub is proud to be 'Nova Scotia's Original Tavern' and continues to serve locals and travelers from around the world. A welcoming smile, generous mugs of grog, fantastic food and, of course, toe-tapping music. Have you ever dined at this restaurant?
