Good Restaurants

We are going to Kingston for 10 days and would like some ideas of good places to eat. We may splurge once or twice on a high end restaurant, but also would like some suggestions on places for breakfast and lunch. And although I love french fries occassionally, I can't eat fried pub-type food for 10 days straight. Any tips for good places for soup/sandwiches/salads for lunch and fruit/yoghurt/oatmeal breakfasts? We will be at the Ambassador Conference resort but will go downtown for meals if necessary.

My favourite place in Kingston is the Sleepless Goat, a vegetarian cafe and restaurant on Princess St. Great sandwiches, salads, etc. Healthy and tasty. www.thesleeplessgoat.ca

For breakfast Cora's (near the Cataraqui town centre) is nice, but a bit expensive. There are several grocery stores near the Ambassador, and I would also suggest picking up some fruit/yogurt the night before and eating in your room.

Curry Original for lunch or dinner is good. There is one downtown on Ontario Street or closer to you at the Ambassador there is one on Princess just before Bayridge. In the same strip mall is a great inexpensive Thai place called Siem Riep. Pan Chancho downtown (on Princess between King and Ontario) has great stuff especially for take out, but is a bit pricey (if you go try the balsamic mushrooms!).

Hope this helps, and enjoy your time here.

The Kingston Brew Pub is good for a pint and good pub food. Their chicken wings are incredible.

Morrison's is great for a cheap, greasy spoon type breakfast.

I was at Mino's, the Greek restaurant, last year and thought that its quality had suffered. IMHO.

There is a great Indian Restaurant on Princess St. about 1 km up on the right hand side, however, I can't remember the name. I think it is called The Curry Village.

The Pilot House has great fish and chips.

The General Wolfe on Wolfe Island is quite good. They time their sittings to the ferry schedule. If the weather is nice, it is very pleasant to walk onto the ferry, have your meal on the island and then take the ferry back.

The Chien Noir is a nice, classy restaurant with good food that may interest you. If you like pizza I have found Atomica is about the best place for great pizza in KIngston.

ALso I just posted this (link below) earlier today regarding restaurants in Kingston if you wish to read it.
