Our Roots

Our home comfort foods are passed down over four generations of Muskokan’s. Good, simple and perfect for everyday living.

Where it all….

began.

Well Fed came to be through the transformation of a 100 year old stable into Gravenhurst’s freshest deli and bakery. The historical building was purchased by proprietor Annette Gillan and her husband in September of 2009. Now proud owners of the future home of Well Fed, renovations began in January 2011, transforming the old stable into the establishment we know and love today.

As structures were being torn down, a not-so-unlikely treasure was discovered hidden within the walls of the stable. A rusty old horseshoe, along with its original nails, was found by Annette and foreshadowed the good luck to come. It now hangs above the entranceway to the kitchen – where all the Well Fed magic happens.

Its been a journey for the Gillans, but well worth it. Well Fed was inspired from the loss of Annette’s Muskoka based manufacturing job of 14 years, and from that one loss came the creation of 5 jobs… and growing… as a result of being embraced by the local community and year round support for Well Fed.

Today, Well Fed is considered a staple in locals’ and visitors’ minds alike, as the place to find authentic old Muskoka charm and fare. Well Fed is made up of passionate cooks, bakers, and staff who work diligently every day to make and serve delicious, thoughtful, homemade comfort foods. We love what we do, and hope that comes through in every single bite.

It’s a labour of

love.

Annette Gillan, owner of Well Fed, is always mixing things around, looking for ways to combine the fresh ingredients she has on hand to create something unique. As a fourth-generation Muskoka girl, born and bred, Gillan saw the need for a great takeout shop that offered true, home-cooked fare.

It has truly been a Labour of Love for Annette, her family and her loyal customers. And she keeps on going. The creative menus change with the seasons, year after year.

The time has come to modify so that I can simplify.  
 
YES, we are still actively searching for a young energetic duo to take over Well Fed and make it their own.
