SOME OF OUR FAVORITE SPOTS
FIRST OFF WE’D LIKE TO SAY THAT NO ONE HAS ASKED US TO POST ANY OF THESE AWESOME LOCAL BUSINESSES; THEY ARE ALL OUR PERSONAL FAVES!

GREAT FOOD, DRINKS & ATMOSPHERE! SO HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE AMAZING PLACES WITHIN THE BAY OF QUINTE & PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY REGION.

WHY WE LOVE IT
NOT ONLY IS THE FOOD INCREDIBLY TASTY EVERY SINGLE TIME, THE SERVICE IS ALWAYS PLEASANT & VERY TIMELY. THEY ALSO OFFER TAKE-OUT (JIM’S PIZZERIA) AND THEY HAVE ONLINE ORDERING – SO HUGE WIN THERE! BUT HONESTLY ALL THESE WONDERFUL THINGS ASIDE THE KOTSOVOS FAMILY HAVE BEEN THE SOLE OWNERS SINCE THEY OPENED UP AND YOU WILL FIND TOM & CINDY IN THERE EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT, GREETING CUSTOMERS & GIVING BEST WISHES TABLE-SIDE. THEY LOVE PEOPLE & SERVE UP SOME DELICIOUS FOOD IN A SUPER WARM AND TRENDY SPACE AND IT SHOWS & THAT’S WHY THEY’RE ON OUR LIST!
