Here’s a small highlight of a restaurant that we visited when we spent our Victoria Day weekend at Centre Island (or Ward’s Island specifically). I know, I know… Victoria Day has long passed since it was in the last Monday of May, but I’m still catching up on my backlog of blog posts. :]
Five of us enjoyed the lazy Monday holiday by chatting and relaxing on the beach with some wine and good company. When we got a little hungry, we visited The Island Cafe for some munchies.
It’s an outdoor restaurant with a patio where you order your food and sit down to enjoy. Sarah and I shared a Pulled Pork Sammy. I guess it was a little pricey for $8, but it seemed okay since we split it. The Pulled Pork Sammy unfortunately was very dry, lacked any real pulled pork taste, and it also contained some red cabbage which made it a little weird. Nevertheless, it was able to fill our stomachs for a bit before we took the ferry back to Toronto for some real dinner. I can’t say that this restaurant is truly terrible since we only had one item from it, but considering the fact that the pulled pork sandwiches were already pre-made and all the cashier had to do was heat it up so that the cheese would melt, I can’t say that I had very high expectations for it. Tim ordered a hot dog from it that he said tasted average.
Have you been to Ward’s Island before? (Take the ferry to Ward’s Island if you want to go to Centre Island in the future because it actually leads to the same island! It’s way less crowded than the actual Centre Island ferry). Have you tried The Island Cafe? I really like its name and how we were actually on an island. :3
