A Must Visit

We met friends there for lunch and what a wonderful culinary and superior service experience. The pulled pork sandwich was extremely flavourful, succulent and tender. The spinach soup was heavenly. Thanks to Chris who was serving us that day and for making our lunch time visit a memorable one.

I chose this restaurant all of those available for lunch in Picton & was not disappointed. It's such a quaint little space with good service & a limited but nice menu all of which come with a soup or salad. This time I chose the lamb burger as some of the choices are a bit exotic for my taste. I... More

This great little jewel is just off the main drag in Picton. I ate lunch at this place about five years ago. It was a five star experience then and it did not disappoint this past weekend. My husband and I spent the day in Picton with our daughter, her husband and two our two grand daughters. We stopped for... More

The food is really good and their desserts are well know in the area.Location isn't the greatest,but I think the owners like it where it is.Definitely sit outside.the view is of side of buildings and a parking lot Picton style.Planted lots of trees to make it cosy.

Lunch was tortiere and soup. The tortiere was beautifully seasoned with flaky pastry, served with chutney and fruit garnish. The soup was mushroom sweet potato and gouda cheese. Just the meal for a windy November day. Service is perfect and the cost is reasonable considering what you get. As a new County-arian (County-ite?) I'll be a regular here.

We just happened to find this place, needing a late lunch after driving all morning and glad we did. Chris made us very welcome, explained the different choices and , made some recommendations. The cider was great and sharing the lamb burger and brie dip was taste. Nice to eat at a place with different choices, good value, friendly atmosphere... More

Stumbled upon this wonderful place to eat in Picton, Ontario. Great food, service, selections and can't wait to return. Husband had the soup and tortiére and I had the salad and quesadilla. So fresh, delicious and well portioned. Not able to try out the desserts yet - but that will be rectified soon. Such a pleasure to be treated to... More
