We are trying to savour every last bit of summer while we can. Prince Edward County (referred to as The County by the locals) is bustling with tourists, and it will be that way up until mid-October. If you’ve been able to snag an Airbnb, room at a bed and breakfast, motel or spa then you’re a lucky one! Or of course, if you’ve made a home purchase and are able to call The County home, you’re probably trying to enjoy what’s left of summer in The County.

 
One thing people often want to know when visiting or coming to The County for the first time, is where to eat? They’re usually pointed to Drake Devonshire for bunch or cocktails, but there are so many other great places to satisfy your hunger. Here are few to consider:
 
The County Yum Club
 
 
On the run? Whether you’re heading back home to Toronto or Ottawa, or you need something fast and quick while visiting wineries and breweries, The County Yum Club will not disappoint. A new addition to the food scene in The County, this spot is already getting great reviews and is a perfect addition. There’s not a lot of selection in The County when it comes to fresh and on-the-go. Hot foods, to-go food and ice cream, this is a great place for a quick stop.
 
Sand And Pearl Raw Bar and Fish Fry
 
 
With a daily menu change and an extensive wine list, the seafood-lover in you will want to stop here. With adorable décor and a convenient location near the Sandbanks Provincial Park this is going to be a new hot spot. Make sure you follow them on Instagram to find out what the menu is each day. A coveted option is the lobster mac and cheese, which makes a rare appearance from time to time.
 
The Courage
 
 
 
The Drake is full? No worries, across the street on Main is this trendy spot. The Courage is a great spot to enjoy cocktails with the locals, but also fill your bellies with tasty food and appetizers. It usually boasts a crowd, so it’s always good to make a reservation before-hand. If you’re interested in a cocktail, try the Unicorn Liquid. It’s magical. To compete with The Drake, they recently launched a new brunch menu.
 
Agrarian Bistro
 
 
Looking for a rustic dish? Bloomfield’s tasty bistro has farm to table food to satisfy your taste buds. It not only has a rustic menu, but also has a rustic venue as well that is favoured by many in The County. You can also belly up to their Speakeasy bar for a nice drink.
 
The County Canteen

Looking for a lively atmosphere? The County Canteen, located downtown Picton is always bustling. It certainly draws a crowd, and offers a fantastic atmosphere. Their priority is to capture the essence of the county, from their 24 craft brews on tap to the delicious fare. They also have weekly events including live music every Friday and Saturday night.
 
Nice Ice Baby Ice Cream
 
 
Cool down in Wellington with small batch ice cream downtown Wellington. They have a little seating area in front and lots of flavours to choose from. Since opening last summer, it’s been drawing a crowd.
 
Slickers
 
 
The small batch ice cream veteran of The County offers flavours of your dreams – Campfire and Apple Pie to name a couple. Expect a line-up that is 100% worth the wait, and then go for a stroll through Bloomfiled or Picton, if you visit their new location.
 
County Cider Co.
 
 
Looking for pizza and views? The County Cider Co. makes beautiful pizzas that taste just as good as they look. Enjoy your wood oven pizza while you gaze at the exceptional waterfront view from above. It’s the best place in The County to enjoy scenery.
 
The Hub At Angeline’s
 
 
Here is a place that has beautifully plated bar snacks and entrées, along with lunch, dinner and breakfast in a lovely rustic venue. It’s a nice and cozy spot where the food is the centre of attention. Of course, everything is paired well with wine, as they have an in-house sommelier.
 
Picnic Food Truck

After sipping on wine at Rosehall Run you can wander over to Picnic which is a guest at the winery from May-October. If you’re lucky enough to come across this truck, you will be treated to the perfect wine pairing snacks and yummy treats. From charcuterie and cheese plates to cookies and donut holes you won’t be disappointed by what they offer.
