My passion for Prince Edward County being immense, I decided to compile a Top 10 list for Chowhounds. It's random but specific. Would love it if others would create their own Top 10 replies!!!
1) Homemade warm sugar doughnuts at Lakeshore Farms on Hwy 33 as you leave or approach Wellington. Bet you can't eat just 6!
2) Across the road from abovementioned: a hot-dog, onion rings and a coffee milkshake at the Dari Bar: perfect Sunday lunch before making the drive back to TO.
3) Tasting wine at By Chadsey's Cairns Winery, just west of the two items above on 33: one of the most atmospheric tasting environments in the County, and their Chenin Blanc is a bright crispy treat. The Gamay is eccentric but worth a try too.
4) The long but gorgeous drive out to Fifth Town Cheese [past Waupoos] is worth it for the sampling as well as for procuring a hunk of their Petal Luna cheese. I am also a new fan of goat cheese cheddar which is awesome on sandwiches and has a less greasy feel than cow's milk cheddars.
5) Caesar salad lovers want to hit Portabella Restaurant on Main Street Picton for a divine take on a classic.
6) Best espresso in the County: Miss Lily's Cafe. Holy crema! I dig their lattes.
7) Blumen Bistro on Hwy 48: lobster ravioli and gazebo seating: lovely spot for couples.
8) The roiboos iced tea and the BELCH sandwich at a new little joint called Chesterfied's Cafe 173 Main in Picton, go round the back [Chowhound heaven: back door entries and secret spots, ha ha]. Couch potato salad was also good but I am a snob about my own salad so...
9) Grabbing a Kawartha Dairy ice cream cone at Black River Cheese and walking down to Vickie's Veggies to check out her wares, which vary a lot day to day.
10) The chip truck at Rossmore as you peruse the Campbell's Orchard table, right before the bridge into Belleville, where you might as well check out the not-PEC but still amazing Auberge de France which has a bakery and a bistro.
Yes, that's 11 technically but dine well this summer Chowhounds and share your raves and gripes!!!
