Going to the Canton café is on my to do list every time I go home to PEI. The eggrolls are impeccable and the food is always hot and fresh. I'm only back every 2 years but the owner always remembers my name. The décor is quite old but the building they're in is one of the originals in downtown... More

Veggie fried rice, honey garlic spare ribs, beef lo mein, lemon chicken and sweet and sour wontons. $52. SO EXPENSIVE. Everything was cold. the lemon sauce was the viscosity of water. Everything was very tasteless and bland. Kind of tasted like it had been sitting in a hot box for some time. The wontons were quite good. Small portions, no... More

This place is without a doubt the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever visited. The hostess was rude, the atmosphere was bland... and the food.. The food was absolutely horrible. The taste was poor at BEST, and the appearance.... I can't even. The beef and broccoli my friend had was extremely dry, and the rice tasted odd. I stomached about... More

Egg rolls are awesome. The service is impeccable. The dinning room is clean and well kept. Nothing fancy but a great meal at a good price with excellent portions.

While this restaurant seems dark and dingy, the food more than makes up for the atmosphere. Everything is made fresh on the premises including the plum sauce. The egg rolls are the best in Charlottetown and, quite possibly, all of PEI.

In 1967 Canada's Father of Confederation, Sir John A. MacDonald, said, "廣的有很大的食品不太貴 . . .and good egg rolls too!From that day to this, Charlottetown's Canton Cafe has been serving people who know where to go for simple Cantonese food that simply does the job.

This is a great place to pick up some "Canadian" Chinese food. The egg rolls are the best in Charlottetown. The price is very reasonable as well. Enjoy!

First, I must say I am spoiled with eating at many good Chinese food restaurants that offer variety in authentic Chinese food. So while on vacation in Charlottetown, I knew I wouldn't be able to find a place that would provide that. We chose this restaurant as they had a special for 3 items, egg roll, and drink for a...
