My time on Prince Edward Island was far too short but it also reminded me that I need to spend more time in Canada.

Things are changing and people are creating some really interesting food here.

In fact I spent most of my time exploring where to eat in Charlottetown.

Although I was both delighted with the food at Lot 30 then dismayed by their perspective on sustainable fishing I left Charlottetown on a high note with some great experiences and I’d love to go back to the island to see more.

Where to Eat in Charlottetown

If you only have a short time in Charlottetown there were a few highlights you should consider.

cooking class

Culinary Boot Camp

You really do cook a lot of food at The Culinary Institute of Canadaโ€™s Culinary Boot Camp.

I really like Chef Ilona, she’s really down to earth and if you want to know where to eat she’s a great resource. Also she showed me how to put a lobster to sleep, which made my day.


The Big Orange Lunch Box

I have to thank Twitter and specifically The Niagara Local for this recommendation.

A great success story of a food truck making it to a bricks and mortar restaurant, the interior is odd as it appears as if it was once a dodgy bar but who cares, the food is great.

Where to eat in Charlottetown - Terre Rouge

Terre Rouge

This food made me rethink Prince Edward Island.

I’m from the East Coast so I know we do seafood well, I know there will be great cafes and of course the people will be friendly.

This is what the Maritimes are all about.

But when I stepped into Terre Rouge I realized that the East Coast could be all these things but also very modern.

Take a look at the Instagram account (photos above), and you’ll see the very definition of food porn, the charcuterie plate is enough to make this bacon girl’s heart go aflutter.

So Prince Edward Island you’ve tugged at my heart and I’m not going to miss you because I know I’ll be back soon.

    I will opt for the big Orange lunch box any day.

  2. Oh wow. Those scallops looked phenomenal! Well, everything did! Literally, my mouth is watering right now. Sad on my road trip through eastern Canada that I couldn’t go to Prince Edward Island, we always serve their mussels at my restaurant!

    PEI is not a place that’s actively marketed to Americans. I don’t think there are many tourists who really go past Nova Scotia. But maybe that’s the exact reason to visit…that and what you’ve shown in your pictures!

  4. Loved Prince Edward Island – though the only eatery I remember in Charlottetown is a cool little shop/cafe called Just us Girls. ๐Ÿ™‚

    OMG, the charcuterie plate is sooo pretty. It is almost a shame to eat anything off that plate.
