Waterloo - and the surrounding areas - provide a variety of dining and shopping opportunities to suit every taste and budget.

The uptown core is an exciting and vibrant gathering space with over 400 establishments ready to serve.

The Shops at Waterloo Town Square is a popular destination for one of-a-kind boutiques, services and dining options. If outdoor patio dining is your favourite, you'll want to visit Wildcraft, The Bauer KitchenBeertown and the new Shoeless Joe's. From Asian cuisine and gourmet BBQ, to farm fresh and cafe-style eats, Waterloo leaves no corner of the world unturned when it comes to fabulous food.

Shopping enthusiasts will enjoy King Street in uptown Waterloo, as well as The Shops at Waterloo Town Square for their specialty retail stores. Conestoga Mall, located at the north-east end of the city, offers a first-rate shopping experience, complete with retail for the whole family, an impressive food court, a grocery store, Galaxy Cinema, and plenty of free parking.

The Boardwalk Centre is our latest shopping achievement. This neighbourhood centre offers outdoor shopping at its best, complete with restaurants, great retail stores, a health club, medical centre, Empire Theatres and plenty of free parking.   

Just a short drive or public transit ride away is Fairview Park Mall - another shopping oasis with over 130 stores to satisfy every need. 

The UpTown BIA is a great resource to help you plan your stay.  

There is so much to see and do in Waterloo - you will absolutely love this city.
