Road trip restaurant recommendations!

If you live in Ottawa or will be visiting, you need to check out Pressed. Heck, even if you are nowhere near Ottawa or have any plans to go, you should make a point of putting this place on your must try list. We discovered it thanks to an episode of You Gotta Eat Here and visited it on our way out of town yesterday. Our table ordered the Pulled Wild Boar sandwich along with three of the waffle creations. Everything was insanely delicious. These are not portions for the faint of heart but definitely worth the calories.

The Press Gang restaurant in Halifax. This was our big splurge of the trip. It’s located in the oldest building in Halifax and worth the visit for the atmosphere alone. Luckily it’s not just about the environment, both the food and service exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend the spiced apple cake for desert!

La Palette in Fredericton. Healthy, nutritious and beautiful presentation.  They very happily substituted extra steamed veggies for the typical rice or potatoes side options. Vegan and vegetarian options available too!

And finally,  the Socialist Pig coffee shop in Gananoque. Cute place, great atmosphere and yummy Americanos and lattes. We happily spent a couple of hours there reading while it rained yesterday afternoon.
