“Amazing Chinese Food”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

While this restaurant seems dark and dingy, the food more than makes up for the atmosphere. Everything is made fresh on the premises including the plum sauce. The egg rolls are the best in Charlottetown and, quite possibly, all of PEI.

“Old Faithful - Charlottetown's Canton Cafe”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

In 1967 Canada's Father of Confederation, Sir John A. MacDonald, said, "廣的有很大的食品不太貴 . . .and good egg rolls too!From that day to this, Charlottetown's Canton Cafe has been serving people who know where to go for simple Cantonese food that simply does the job. For generations, owner George Lee greeted Islanders at the door - most by name - and now that he's gone, the family tradition continues. Ask anyone on Prince Edward Island, if you crave a solid small town "Chinese Food" experience, eat at The Canton.

“Great "Canadian" Chinese food”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

This is a great place to pick up some "Canadian" Chinese food. The egg rolls are the best in Charlottetown. The price is very reasonable as well. Enjoy!
