Swiss Chalet is a Canadian chain of casual dining restaurants founded in 1954 in Toronto. As of 2008, there are over 200 Swiss Chalet restaurants in Canada. Swiss Chalet is among the holdings of Cara Operations, which also owns the fast food chain Harvey's. Swiss Chalet and Harvey's franchises frequently share locations. Some locations are more akin to fast food restaurants.
The first Swiss Chalet restaurant, at 234 Bloor Street West in Toronto, operated for 52 years. The building featured exposed-beam ceilings in the Swiss chalet style. This store closed in 2006 and was demolished in 2009 to make place for a condominium development.
The stores' points of sale variously include in-store dining rooms, drive-through windows, take-out counters, delivery, and a website for online food ordering. Cara Operations retails Signature Swiss Chalet sauce, gravy, and marinade (as powdered mixes) in Canadian supermarkets.
The Quarter Chicken Dinner, the restaurant's signature dish, comprises a roasted chicken leg or breast with "Chalet Sauce", a bread roll, and a side dish. Swiss Chalet's sides dishes include lightly breaded french fries, baked potatoes, green salad, white rice, coleslaw, and vegetable medley. During the Christmas season, Swiss Chalet sells a modified version of this dinner: the Festive Special's side dishes are stuffing, cranberry relish, and a wrapped chocolate.
For the French-speaking Quebec market, Cara Operations re-branded Swiss Chalet to Chalet Suisse, but later ceded to the market dominance of competing restaurant chains St-Hubert and Scores. There are no Swiss Chalet franchises in Saskatchewan.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
