The Terrace Hill Neighbourhood in Brantford is bordered by Highway 403 to the north, West Street and Clarence Street to the east, the CN Railway to the south and St. Paul and King George to the west. If this sounds a bit confusing, it is because Terrace Hill is not a square block neighbourhood.

Brantford’s own Dairee Delite, has served ice cream treats since 1953. As the story goes, the ice cream stand was offered as part of a poker game where it changed hands not once, but twice. The second time it changed hands, the winner had the stand moved from the Brantford Mall parking lot to its current location in the Home Hardware plaza on St. Paul Avenue. Stop by and see why people from all over make a visit to Dairee Delite a family tradition. P.S. – They close for the winter season and re-open in the spring!
You will also find many unique shops along Charing Cross Avenue.
