In the on season while on Prince Edward Island The Dunes is a must see for people interested in very amazing poetry, furniture, jewelry and clothes. The restaurant is very good and the gardens are spectacular. Plan at least a couple of hours to enjoy all there is to see.

Our B and B in Charlottetown strongly recommended we visit this store/gallery and if possible stay for lunch. There is a strong Far Eastern vibe in this place situated on the Gulf of St Laurence. Be sure to allow enough time to walk through the beautiful gardens. After going through three floors of art, furnishings, furniture, coffee table books and... More

We were showing a friend from Georgia around this beautiful island and decided to have lunch at The Dunes. We were all thrilled to browse the wonderful arts and crafts for sale while waiting for the cafe to open. We all bought gifts and treats for ourselves before sitting down for a scrumptious lunch. I had the asparagus and lobster... More

We drove out to The Dunes to pick up a few things as the shop was holding its fall sale today. The cafe opened at 11:30 am and we decided to have lunch. If you really enjoy a tomato based fish stew, be sure to order it from the menu. The broth was spicy but very nicely flavoured. The seafood... More

It was suggested by our Inn Housekeeper, that we visit this place, and it certainly did not dissapoint. First of all the Gardens outside are simply outstanding and on a sunny day, we enjoyed a walk through. The gift shop has many interesting items to choose from and also a very nice art gallery. The layout of the store is... More

I visit this place on practically every visit to PEI. It never disappoints . The staff, layout of products and the pottery and crafts for sale are first class.

Did not know about it. Just stopped since it looked like a place where I could get a real nice souvenir of my trip to PEI. We enjoyed the multi-level architecture of the building and additions. Especially liked the Bali exhibition on the top level. We did not eat there since we had our hearts set on lobster rolls and... More

This is a lovely stop on the north shore. The restaurant has fabulous food and great service. The shops are different than anything else we saw on the island and offer local artisans work.

Stopped at the Dunes to look at their merchandise. It's always original, well planned and interesting if somewhat pricey. Decided to have a glass of wine and coffee in their café. They advertise excellent coffee but it certainly fell short of our expectations. The coffee was very ordinary, even below average. The wine was nothing to be proud of and... More
