Hello everyone! Our story begins in December of 2020 when our family purchased this sweet little café. We are a family of five that love to travel and seek out cafés at each stop. Making connections and sharing coffee and treats with the locals has enhanced our experiences, and we hope to do the same here in Grand Bend.
Heres a little info about us! We have lived in Grand Bend our whole lives, and theres no place we’d rather be! Ingrid and Raegan Hayter are the new owners, we are a mother – daughter duo taking this on to have some fun and share new opportunities together as a family. Raegan is currently a full time student in teachers college at Brock University. Covid-19 has allowed her to study online and work at the café. She will graduate in 2022 as a high school teacher with plans to stay in the Grand Bend area. She is passionate about serving others whether that is through customer service at the café or with her students in the classroom! Ingrid just “retired” from her almost 30 year dental career, ending at the oral and maxillofacial department at University Hospital in London to pursue this dream of her’s to own a café and share yummy beverages and conversation with our community!
Highway Girl Café will continue to offer all of your favourite gluten free and vegan options, along with a couple personal additions. Our signature GF morning glory and chocolate zucchini muffins are a local favourite! Come out, say hi, stay for breakfast/lunch(on our new patio…coming Spring 2021), or grab any of your favourite espresso fixes here.
Thank you for supporting local!
