Elevate your summer entertaining with beach town classics from Heydays at The June Motel.

Located on the shores of Lake Huron in beautiful Sauble Beach, Ontario, Heydays at The June Motel is a retro-inspired restaurant that offers guests a chance to experience the good old days of summer. Serving reinvented coastal classics and elevated comfort food, Heydays is a place to come together with friends and family over a glass of rosé and fresh oysters while the sun goes down and a warm breeze blows in off the water.

This collection of over 120 recipes offers home cooks a delectable range of mouth-watering dishes to savour and share—from their signature buttered Hot Lobster Rolls and Charred Broccoli Caesar Salad to Old Bay Fried Chicken and béchamel-covered Classic Mac and Cheese. Written with humour and warmth, and filled with absolutely stunning photography, Heydays at The June Motel: Beach Town Classics invites readers to take home the beach and create summer memories that will last a lifetime.
