Restaurant meals are prepared by Olivier (who also operates our seasonal Schnitzel Express), under the mentorship of his dad Chef Robert, in charge of food and pastry production. Nicolas lines our jolly good tarts, helps with kitchen duties, and maintains our facebook and website; Joseph ably and eagerly helps with serving and with baking! We sincerely appreciate you coming in; Lori is committed to orchestrating your memorable SWISS BEAR experience.
Our house specialty is schnitzel; enjoy it simply, or choose from a variety of toppings; also, try our bearlicious butter tarts and fruit tarts with a fresh ground French roast coffee.
Chef Robert, Lori, the boys, and team, are dedicated and enthusiastic to establish the SWISS BEAR as one of your favourite TO GO destinations!
Thank you for supporting a family run business!
WELCOME BACK! OUR SCHNITZEL EXPRESS IS OPEN!
Robert, Swiss Certified Chef, was raised in Switzerland where he studied culinary arts and apprenticed with Moevenpick Restaurant in Geneva.
Always in search of excellence; with a passion for quality, flavourful food; he further sharpened his chef skills working in Toronto, and with an entrepreneurial spirit operated his own establishments in Toronto and London before moving to North Kawartha, 11 years ago. Our children grew up here (check out the pictures below) and made the SWISS BEAR what it is today!
The SWISS BEAR, owned and operated by the Sigrist Family, is a true family, professional venture; cultivating responsibility and strong work ethics in all. While we keep a watchful eye on efficiency, affordability and wait time, we will not take short cuts; from food production to finishing meals on order, everything is prepared with care and quality ingredients.
In the busy warmer months, our SWISS BEAR Schnitzel Express, located next to our restaurant, is open seasonally weather, etc. permitting.
SPRING 2020 has brought many changes that affect everyone. While our restaurant remains closed for now, our Schnitzel Express is OPEN!
