We didn't eat here, but rather ordered a cake for a special event. We've ordered from pretty much every place in Peterborough over the years, and I can honestly say this was the best cake we've had yet. (Maple Cake). Highly recommended and certainly worth trying yourself if you're in the market for an exceptional cake. Ever single person that... More

Great setting near downtown with good parking on the streets and a few spots behind the restaurant. Great selection of teas and fantastic pies and cakes, made fresh, in house! The staff are friendly and attentive.

This is a favourite spot for my Mom and I. If we're out shopping downtown, or have a busy day of errands planned, we love taking the time to stop into this great spot. The food is always delicious (we always love getting the soup - their soup selection is so vast, I don't know if I've ever had the... More

It was the first time I ever had a fancy tea related experience and it was awesome. The inside is clean and excellently decorated and the food is foolishly good. Everything is made on site and the scones are ridiculously good. They have a great selection of teas and the one I tried was freaking great and came in cool... More

My husband had lunch with a colleague last month at the Magic Rolling Pin, and rhapsodized about it so much, I knew I had to see for myself. Today we took his father out for his birthday lunch, and we couldn't have made a better choice! Being the Christmas season, it was very busy, so reservations are recommended. But this... More

My family and I come here for a special treat; the pies, cakes, and scones are my kids' favourites. However, you do have to come earlier in the day, as a lot of desserts are devoured by 1:30, understandably so. Our servers are always sincerely friendly and helpful, very nice people to chat with, who obviously enjoy their job. The... More

I never miss the opportunity to visit this restaurant when I am in Peterborough. It is a step back in time, when life was simple and service was something to be proud of and food was meant to be enjoyed. A friendly knowledgable staff will greet and serve you. The amazing specials are something you don't want to miss--a sure... More

I visit Peterborough a couple times a year to visit family and we usually go out for a bite to eat while I'm in town. This was our first time to The Magic Rolling Pin, and it will not be my last! We had the most delicious lunch, with even more delicious home-baked desserts. Seriously, the baking is a must-have!... More

For a small birthday celebration we went at 3 pm.....they close at 4.30. I called ahead to find out if this would be ok and was assured the full menu would be available. It was empty when we arrived, obviously their rush was over, and they made no attempt to please us at all. Only three desserts were offered. They... More
