    Stone House Cafe.: Follow the locals.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Stone House Cafe restaurant is one of Pictou's most historic buildings and dates back to the early 1800's. The original house was for many years Pictou's largest and was originally built for John Dawson, a local businessman. The Stone House Cafe is appropriately named as it is of a freestone and scottish granite construction and as well as a private home has also been used as a store and offices. The present owners bought the property in 1987.

    Favorite Dish: The menu was large and very varied to say the least. All the usual starters were on offer including soup, salads, chowder, mussels and garlic bread. Best value is the Stone House platter whic consists of deep fried zucchini, mushrooms, onion rings and potato skins all for $7.65 and enough for two to share. Mains ranged from all the usual seafood to steaks, turkey, liver & onions, pork schnitzel, sauerkraut & sausage, lasagna, pizzas as well as sandwiches, hot dogs and burgers. Something for everyone. Drinks were very reasonable, fortunately, 1/2 litre of house wine was $11.55 and we rounded things off with a couple of coffees and liquers, as usual.

    This is not a flash restaurant by any means but had a certain local charm. There were a lot of locals eating when we were there which is usually a good sign. All food sampled was very good. Worth a visit.

    Tricky Dicky rating - 7.5 / 10.

    Address: 13 Water Street, Pictou.

    Crown Pizza: The Best Pizza in Town!

    by Lisser Written Apr 14, 2003

    This is not a restaurant, strictly take-out. However, it is definitely the best pizza in town and I've yet to find anything, anywhere that I like better!!
    Looks can be deceiving... although this place is not the prettiest building, the great food will quickly make you forget about that. So give it a try!

    Favorite Dish: "The Works" Pizza

    Directions: Across from the Pictou Post Office

    There's a great atmosphere here. Really good food and a great selection of local seafood. The restaurant extends out onto the water like a wharf. You can sit and eat while watching sailboats go by. Very relaxing!

    Favorite Dish: Pasta, Chicken fingers, Caesar Salad

    Directions: It's located literally on the water! You can't miss it- it's on the Pictou waterfront beside the marina.
