Mei’s Daily Food opened in 2016. The interior of the restaurant is simple and inviting. The walls have a striped grey and cream colour and have silver metal wainscoting. The ceiling is painted black, with exposed ductwork that along with the light fixtures, adds an industrial look to the place. There are wooden tables and chairs, some are rectangular and some round, and a large wooden counter, with a semi-opened kitchen where patrons can see their food being plated or packed. There is nothing much in amenities, only a couple of nice paintings on the walls.
This restaurant is family-owned and run by a mother-son duo and along with a team of professionals; they are aimed at serving good, hearty meals to the Barrie community. The menu is divided into a Canadian breakfast section and a full Chinese food menu.
