We have been to this lovely, quaint resort several times for their famous Dalvay Pudding dessert and love it. On our last trip, we had time to stay for lunch and it was well worth it.
The lodge is an elegant, restored Queen Anne Revival home and a National Historic site in Canada. Dining seating is in a large room, surrounded by windows overlooking the lawn and lake. It has a large fireplace and honey-gold wood ceiling. It’s like stepping back in time. Turn off your cell phone and relax.
The food is wonderful and well worth the trip even if you are not staying at the lodge. For our lunch, we had the Duck Confit Club (rich, moist and tender), the Warm Salmon Sandwich on a crunch foccacia bread with avocado and smoked bacon (to die for!), Crunchy Haddock and Frites with the house breading, and served with chipotle aioli, and mussels in white wine and garlic. Of course, we had to finish off with the famous Dalvay-by-the-Sea pudding, a sticky date pudding with a warm toffee sauce & vanilla bean ice cream. The dessert alone is worth the trip to PEI.
This is truly a memorable place to visit for lunch or High Tea in the afternoon.
