What a neat place. We had a Potato Pie Dish / Casserole as a main entrée and it was delicious. The restaurant is one nice sized room with windows on two sides, we were able to watch the sun going down. The salad was fresh as was the biscuit along with soft butter. The dessert--fruit pie was very good. The... More

Driving by it looked a little like a tourist trap. Went in anyway. They made and presented preserves for tasting. They also focused on a variety of teas. Restaurant in the back. Great pies. Outside a garden walk worth taking.

Charming setting and beautiful garden. The food here is excellent. I had the lobster pot pie and it would be my "If I had one more meal before I die" meal! So delicious! The teas and desserts are fabulous too. Definitely one of my favourite places to dine on PEI. We also purchased the Raspberry Champagne preserve. Fabulous!

We were doing an island tour. Stopped here. Reminded us of being in Glasgow, Scotland. The owner, Bruce, was wearing his kilt and helping us check out. We purchased the Raspberry Champagne and the Strawberry Grand Mariner preserves. They were/are our favorites. These are the best preserves we have ever had. Fresh. They sell teas, too and have a restaurant.... More

We were actually looking for a different restaurant but found this one by mistake and we are glad we did. The servers was excellent as well as the food. Great portions of food for the price. The atmosphere was seafaring, bright and we had a seat by the window and were able to look out over the river and nearby... More

We had breakfast here twice. First day was quite good with the traditional eggs, bacon & toast. The preserves served with the meal were wonderful. Purchased some on the way out. Second morning, not so good. I had the french toast. It was a disappointment. Bread wasn't soaked in the egg mixture so it just had a cooked skim on... More

We came here for my grandmothers birthday lunch around noon and had called earlier in the day to make a reservation and they let us know that they don't take reservations for lunch. We figured we would be alright to wait a bit for a table if we had to, but when we arrived after driving an hour to get... More

Let me first say the Jams and Preserves are excellent. Unfortunately, the service and food at the restaurant wasn't up to the same standard. Our waitress didn't greet us and she never really interacted with us. Her service continued to lack all during the meal ( my water glass sat empty from mid-meal on.) Food-wise, My Lobster Pot Pie was... More

If you like jams, preserves and unique gifts, don't pass this place by! Not only do they have a fantastic selection of preserves, some wonderful salsas and special gifts. The most wonderful thing, however is that if you are traveling and can't afford more weight in your suitcase, they offer a $9.95 flat rate shipping charge anywhere in No. America.... More
