Suggestions for veg/seafood-friendly lunch and dinner places near Peterborough (or a little east)?

I saw a Peterborough thread but most of it is at least 2 years old. I did see Cosmic Charlies and Riverhouse Co. but since I'm coming from Toronto and I don't want to go too much more north than Peterborough, I don't think I'll make it to Riverhouse. Any other ideas?

    Sorry e.t., 'ptbo' is local short form for Peterborough....

      Lakefield isn't *that* far north of Peterborough - Riverhouse is definitely the best bet for dinner. Maybe check out the map and give it a second thought, but if it is too far, then I guess you should plan for next time!

      For lunch options, I was at Cosmic Charlies about a year ago and the food was nice and fresh - I'd recommend it.
      There's a place called "Maggie's Eatery", which is open for lunch and offers some really good vegetarian options. It's less of a restaurant, but with a bit of seating if I remember correctly. I'd recommend it for the local ownership, and the quality of what they turn out.

      That's all I've got - good luck finding places to eat in Peterborough!

        I probably will not be there for too long a time--kind of passing through to cottage country and then back. Thanks for the suggestions.

          As much as I adore Riverhouse, I wouldn't recommend it to a strict vegetarian. You'd at least need to eat fish or seafood. If that's on the menu, then by all means try
          the area's best restaurant. And seriously, it's like 15 min from downtown Ptbo.
          Cosmic Charlie's is vegetarian friendly, as is the Ritz, and of course the Planet if you're looking for lunch.

            I can't find ptbo when I google it but I'll make a note. Some seafood is fine.

            Making of a note of all of these!
