    Morrisons: ~ Cheap Yet Delicious Breakfast ~

    by RavensWing Written Mar 17, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Morrison's restaurant is a 'Mom and Pops' type restaurant. I have to admit I have only been to this restaurant for breakfast, though. I remember heading there every Sunday morning with my family. The restaurant was always busy. You actually had to wait for your table.

    The meals were always delicious. I never had a single complaint with the food that was served to me. The servers were always friendly, even upbeat at most times.

    Every time I go back to Kingston I stop in here for some breakfast.

    Favorite Dish: The Super Breakfast Pancake! Comes with all the things I like to have for breakfast. It is a lot to eat though.

    King Street Sizzle: At the Four Points

    by nivu Written Aug 8, 2011

    The King Street Sizzle is located inside the Four Points Sheraton. The interior is very well decorated, even the table settings are very original. Our server, Anthony, was very attentive and helpful. We had breakfast here with our kids.

    I had the portuguese French Toast, which is like any French toast except they use a portuguese style bread which I enjoyed, my son on the other hand ordered the kids french toast and got the same kind of bread which was too different for his liking. My wife also enjoyed her eggs benedict.

    All in all a good meal, excellent service but a little pricey.

    Merchant Tap House: You better sit on the patio

    by nivu Written Aug 8, 2011

    We were at the Merchant Tap House for a quick meal and a beer, they met our expectations. We sat on the patio in front of the pub. The pub is located next to the Holiday Inn near the waterfront. When I wandered inside to use the washroom, I was struck by how shaby the place looks. When I entered the washroom, the pub looked great in contrast.

    Favorite Dish: Spinach salad and sweet potato fries were very good

    Kingston Brewing co.: Where the beer is brewed

    by nivu Written Aug 7, 2011

    This pub brews it's own beer and has many different selections from other local and craft breweries. Some beers they have on tap have very interesting names that sometimes highlight the local history and area.

    The menu is about as varied as the beer list. They have the usual pub fare; burgers, nachos, fish and chips... but they also have some interesting choices like cheeses with baguette, or really good vegetable (crudité) platter or a peanut butter and jam sandwich.

    Inside the pub you can see where they brew some of the beers. The space is a liitle cramped but they have an outdoor patio as well. The server was not of the smily and enthusiatic kind but she did her job.

    Favorite Dish: I was hungry for something a little more light and the ploughman's lunch was different and quite good. My wife tried a new kind of beer that happened to be a cask conditionned ale, which means it is served at room temperature and is somewhat flat. Not to her liking and probably not to everyones taste.

    Pan Chancho: Bakery & restaurant

    by nivu Written Aug 7, 2011

    We had breakfast and lunch at this bakery/restaurant, which are they only 2 meals they serve. Being combined with a bakery, of course the emphasis is on the freshly baked breads. You can choose from the breads and pastries (croissants, buns etc.) or from the menu specials on the board or from the menu itself. They have salads, soups, sandwiches and other fare of this sort.

    They have seating inside as well as outside behind the restaurant. The staff was nice and efficient. Both of the meals we had were great. The atmosphere is relaxed.

    Hours are 7am to 4pm every day. The bakery is opened a little later until 6pm except Sundays at 5pm.

    Favorite Dish: Very good coffee for breakfast acommpanied by a delicious croissant or the weekender breakfast.

    by janika Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This is an American restaurant. The interesting part is, that it is located in the old City Fire department building. Very interesting.

    They also have a nice, large patio at the back where you can seat outside while consuming your food or beverages. The place serves steak, sea-food, finger foods, drinks, sodas, juices and all kinds of yummy stuff.

    Any dish off their Pony Express Lunch menu is free when not served withing fifteen minutes from ordering. Kinda cool eh?! :)

    Favorite Dish: T-Bone steak. They also have good, strong and fresh coffee.

    Wooden Heads: Unique Menu, Superb Food, at a Price

    by 130guy Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Wooden Heads has evolved over the past 3-4 years to be one of the trendiest, most unique restaurants in the upscale, funky heart of Kingston.

    We reserve our visits to special occasions as it is often hard to get a table, and the prices have climbed with popularity.

    They serve a wide range of Mediterranean Tapas (like large unusual appetizers), as well as wood-stove cooked pizzas. The menu is truly entertaining to read and there is something for everyone! We normally get 3 Tapas to split between my wife and I which leave us content but not stuffed.

    The patio out back is the best spot to sit for a quiet conversation, as the main room tends to get a low roar going during peak periods.

    Reserve a table to be on the safe side.

    Favorite Dish: A a favorite dish is the formaggio (phylo pastry stuffed with pecan crusted baked brie on a bed of mango puree with basil honey drizzle crusted baked brie), or try the coconut battered shrimp (coconut fried black tiger shrimp with vietnamese nuoc cham sauce).

    The Merchant Tap House: A great selection of Downtown Drafts

    by Highbrae Written Jan 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Merchant Tap House began life as The Merchant MacLiam in an old converted waterfront warehouse next door to the Holiday Inn and on the waterfront walkway. In addition to a wonderful range of lunches and suppers that are not the usual pub grub they have as good as selection of quality drafts as you will find in downtown Kingston. As a lover of Belgium beer I especially enjoy the Leff Brun which is hard to find on draft in Kingston. Live entertainment many nights, with something special every night.

    Cheers

    Favorite Dish: The burgers don't come in pre-formed cardboard circles, they taste as good as they look and they look fabulous, not huge, just right in size and taste.

    Kingston Brewing Company: Quality Canadian Beer

    by Highbrae Written Jan 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many Americans speak of how much better Canadian beer is, well I would say that compared to many European beers (Belgium, Germany, Ireland) our bottled beers are left wanting. However, the Kingston Brewing Company is a very special exception. Located in a historic building in Downtown Kingston, they make a wonderful range of beers including the house label of Dragon's Breath Ale. However, there are many too choose from depending upon the season so ask your server.

    The food is typical pub grub, however it is good enough to not put off the taste of the Beer.

    If the weather is nice the patio is the place to sit and watch the people. It is best if you have time to relax and enjoy as I have found the service to be slow at times.

    Favorite Dish: Whatever is in season and on tap of course.

    Bravo - Verona, Ontario: The best food on Highway 38

    by Highbrae Written Oct 20, 2007

    From their Pizza to the Specials of the Day the Bravo in Verona Ontario is the best food on Highway 38 north from Kingston to Hwy 7. With years of experience at one of Kingston's finest Greek restaurants (Mino's) this family offers the best of local food choices.

    Saigon Delights: A simple Vietnamese experience

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Aug 30, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Almost all of our meals in Toronto had been very lavish affairs that came as part of the wedding package, so we were now ready to go downscale a bit and also try some ethnic food while we were at it. Not wanting to spend our time at a restaurant, I checked out the local establishments on the internet and we then set off in our car to see what we could find in downtown Kingston in the 'budget' department. It was not too long before we found Saigon Delights, a hole-in-the-wall spot with a good reputation and located on a very non-descript street in the old part of the city, three blocks inland from the St. Lawrence River. The inside is not fancy, just one big room with tables dotted around the edges and a counter along one side behind which the food is prepared in view of the patrons, and there were quite a few happy looking customers seated here and there.

    Favorite Dish: We don't have a lot of experience with Vietnamese food, so we took a blind stab at a couple of their take-out items. 'Com Ga Nuong' is a grilled chicken breast cut into large chunks and served with a spicy tomatoe-based sauce (C$7) while 'Com Curry Thit Bo/Tom' is a flavourful mild spicy stir-fry of beef (or it could be chicken or shrimp) served with mixed vegetables with red curry and coconut milk sauce (C$7). Both dishes came with large quantities of steamed white rice. While waiting the 15 minutes for our order to be prepared, we found a nearby liquor store where we purchased a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc (C$10) to accompany our meal. We both liked the spicy chicken breast dish the best, but the other order was also quite good and it had some very large slices of carrots, as well as peppers and celery that had interesting flavours themselves.

    Muskie Jake's Tap and Grill: Quiche to die for!

    by Suzze Updated Jun 25, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Restuarant is on the side of The Gananoque Inn I think it may be all of the same one. It's basicly a fish restuarant but caters for other food too. None of us had fish. We came here for lunch as we were doing the thousand island boat trip that afternoon. We all enjoyed our lunch here but have to say the quiche was the best I've ever tasted. It's all made on the premises and the pastry just melts in your mouth! The service was excellent and very friendly too. We did want to sit out on the patio deck overlooking The St Lawrence River but it was sooo hot we decided to eat inside. Would recommend this place to eat and it did seem popular, lots of people but not too hectic.

    Favorite Dish: The Quiche!

    Pan Chanco's Bakery/Restaurant: World-Class Bread, Great Brunch at Pan Chanco's

    by Daniel_Williams Written May 13, 2005

    The one meal we had in Kingston was a superb brunch at Pan Chancho's Bakery/Restaurant. My friend Lisa insisted we go there, so impressed she had been her last trip.

    The quality of the bread accompanying the main course and pre-meal was exceptional. Coming from Montreal, I found it incredible that such superior bread could be found in small Kingston, when I sometimes can't find good baguettes in some much larger North American cities. One bread had a hint of licorice in the batter that was superb.

    The dishes offered range from sandwiches and omelette tortes to innovative fusion cuisine specials. Service was friendly, despite the fact that the bakery's popularity kept the place pretty busy. There's a patio courtyard out back for dining on a pleasant day, as well as indoor seating in a cross of country/art-deco style room.

    For those who don't wish to sit and eat a meal, you can also grab some bread and pastries to go in the front portion of the bakery/restaurant. Don't be suprised if there's a bit of a line to the cash, but I think you'll find that it was worth the wait.

    Favorite Dish: The eggplant soup with sautéed onions was just delicious.
