Great little place. Friendly people and lots of seafood! A little quite in the winter but bustling in the summer.
Where to stay – I like the Delta, well located and a practical business hotel with a great restaurant. Lots of local food choices. Good linens (I’m a bit odd in that I often judge hotels by how comfy their linens are). The gym is dated but great fitness studio across the street (see below for more info)
Where to eat…it depends:
Quick healthy lunch:
- Timothy’s on University – great tuna wraps!
- Urban Eatery in Confederation Mall – yummy grilled chicken and spinach salad
Best Seafood Chowder – Delta Prince Edward
Must have Cow’s Ice Cream — you can actually taste that it is a dairy product!
Best Gourmet – Lot 30 on Kent (especially recommend the 5 course tasting menu – amazing food and perfect portion sizes)
Really good Italian – Sironela Ristorante on Water St
Best Sweet Potato Fries – The Pilot House on Kent St
Great Yoga – Dynamic Fitness on Queen, drop in rates of $20 for 10 classes – worth it even if you only have time for a few, classes available at before work, lunch and after work
Great manicure – Carrie at Carrie’s Esthetics on Queen
