Interesting location

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

My husband and I came for a very late lunch (2:00 p.m. or so) in early September. We'd missed both the lunch-time rush and the quiche that had been on the menu that day, but we had a very enjoyable lunch nonetheless. The quesadillas were excellent, the accompanying salads very fresh. The atmosphere is "homey" (cozy, lots of wood) inside,... More

What a find this little gem of a place was....we had the pleasure of dining at The Painted Peppercorn on August 13th. The restaurant itself is small and quaint but has a very nice patio out back. The menu is limited but the offerings were out of this world. Both my husband and I had the (carrot and parsnip soup).... More

Tried eating here twice before but was unable due to timing as we arrived at closing time. Spoke with two ladies who had just finished lunch and they said that they were from Kingston and always ate at the Painted Peppercorn when visiting Picton. Finally made it in time and it is a great little place with home made food.... More

This was our second visit to The Painted Peppercorn. We were seated on a pleasant outdoor patio and the service was attentive and welcoming. The menu is somewhat limited (I think there were 3-4 choices of entrees) but the kitchen appears small and I applaud the owners/chefs for sticking to what they know best and can deliver on; the promise...
