There’s always something new happening Ontario’s delicious destinations, it can be hard to keep up! On the plus side, there’s always another reason to visit that tried and true spot you thought you knew well.
One of our favorite weekend road trips has us heading for The County, a charming island community halfway between Toronto and Ottawa, just outside Kingston, on Lake Ontario.
In recent weeks, there have been some big (and sad) changes in the region, most notably the closing of County Road Beer Company, Vicki’s Veggies and The Hubb at Angeline’s. In their wake though, a slew of new experiences have emerged. There has never been a better time to plan a return visit!
Here’s a few news places in Prince Edward County we’re looking to explore this summer.
- Opening April 2018, Seedlings is the new restaurant slated to open at Angeline’s in Bloomfield. They’ve been pretty tight lipped about the new endeavor, but you can take a peak at what they’re cooking up on Instagram here.
- Another new addition to the restaurant scene includes Flame & Smith in Bloomfield. Billing itself as a “a sustainably-minded restaurant that embraces the exciting art of woodfire cooking and the supporting community that surrounds it”, it’s sure to satisfy!
- Prince Edward County is quickly becoming one of the great craft cider hubs in Ontario, especially since the opening of Settlers Cider in Hillier and Fieldbird Cider at Keint-He Winery in Wellington. They join industry pioneer County Cider Co. in the area.
- We’re counting down the days until Picton’s Royal Hotel opens its doors to the public. Once operational The Royal will serve as a boutique hotel with 28 rooms, two restaurants, a small spa, patio garden and lounge with event capacity to serve up to 150 guests. We’ve got our eye on this one as the kitchen is being run by long time locavore, Chef Albert Ponzo.
