Visiting Brockville and Prescott

I'm staying in Brockville on the weekend, and visiting Prescott during the same trip and was wondering where to eat. There are no threads that I could find on either place.

So suggestions? Driving to Kingston is not an option, has to be in the area.

  1. I think Merrickville is on the way from Brockville to Prescott - maybe the Sam Jakes Inn?

    1. My friend lives in Brockville and I spent a couple days up there for a visit last summer. There's this cute cafe with an outdoor patio with some great salads called Brockberry Cafe. Perfect for this summer weather. We were also out in Merrickville where there's this place called Gad's Hill Place which is an Old English style restaurant based on the works of Charles Dickens. The menus are even embedded with Dickens books! Kinda quaint and cute for something a bit different.

      1. Darn, I was just in the downtown Brockville and found an adorable little spot. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the place, I know it sounds Italian. It looks fairly new with two older vespa scooters in the front. Cute little cappuccino and sandwich bar with really quite good pie and awesome soup!

        We were just there on the weekend and we were very pleased to have found the place.

        1. Merrickvile is not on the way to Brockville. You would have to take a 30-45 minute detour (each way). However, if you were willing to do that, I would agree with the Sam Jakes Inn or Baldachins.

          In Brockville, 1000 Islands Seafood used to be decent but I haven't been there in a long time. It's on King Street near the Arts Centre.

          1. The sandwich place mentioned above is called Boboli, it does have very good sandwiches and pasteries. 1,000 Islands Seafood is no longer open. Brockvile has a lot of "hit or miss" type of restaurants. If you want pizza, my suggestion would be 1000 Islands pizza, they're pizza is amazing!
