Looking for a good spot for lunch tomorrow in Port Perry, nothing fancy, just good food. Thanks

    Have you looked at the list here? http://www.restaurantica.com/on/port-... I have not tried any of the places listed.

      The Jester's Court has perfectly fine pub food. And a ghost for entertainment purposes. :)

        We had lunch at the Jester's Court about a week ago. I had a tuna melt, my husband had a reuben. Sandwiches were ok, but the standout part of the meal was the vegetable kettle chips. I ate every bit of them. Really good.

        There's a decent Mexican spot in Port Perry. I can't for the life of me remember the name -- maybe someone else could chime in.

            Hmm, just did a search, and the place I was thinking of was Mexico Lindo. But it was at the same address. So maybe a change in ownership? Hopefully, the food is still as tasty.

              There's a Mexico Lindo in Whitby now; not sure if it's a 2nd location or if the original has moved.

                it is a chain, there is also a Mexico Lindo on Bayview ave in Leaside. I'd check out Haugens, on #7, just before Port.

          The best restaurant in Port Perry is Magdy's at 1888 Scugog Street, their web site is
          I have had breakfast there once and dinner several times, all good. Never been there for lunch.

          A relatively new, small cafe at 110 Water Street that has been getting good reviews, and has a view of the lake, is Pickles and Olives Bistro. I have not eaten there yet, but would give it a try.

            Unfortunately Magdy's is closed now. They did have a great breakfast! Sorry to see them go. Pickles and Olives is OK but not fantastic. New in town is Harp and Wylies Canadian Grill House. It is on Water St. in Port Perry. (the old Waterfront bar). I have had their bruschetta and it was FAB! Great reports so far.

            Thank for all the responses, but we actually got to Port Perry well before lunch so we turned it into breakfast and on a recommendation from 4 guys sitting outside having coffee at 21 and 12 we went to a small place called Chalet Restauraunt beside the beer store. It was absolutely excellent and would recommend it highly. I would be interested to know if anyone has had lunch or dinner there as the menu (chalkboard) was interesting. . Thanks again

              Had dinner at the Chalet Restaurant. The food was great. For a very basic looking place it was a nice surprise. Couple of things were a drawback. Cash only, no liquor license, decor dreadful. But if you are looking for a satisfying meal for a great price....Definetely go there.
