Visiting P.E.C.: Lunch at Drake Devonshire Inn

Since opening its doors in October 2014, it seems like a trip to Prince Edward County–a charming and pastoral wine region in Southeast Ontario–would be incomplete without a meal at the Drake Devonshire. And for good reasons too. With a scenic view of Lake Ontario, fun outdoor art installations and quirky decor, this Drake Hotel outpost has the look and feel of a modern country house with food as cozy and hearty as Prince Edward County itself.

During a late afternoon meal, having missed brunch by one minute, we shared the House Salad (with scallops), the Devonshire Burger, the Smoked Chicken Pot Pie–a light take on the usually thick and creamy pot pies–and a Crispy Eggplant Parmesan Sammy, my favourite sandwich yet, finishing with the Steamed Chocolate Cake.

All in all, it was a lovely late lunch in PEC. With a belly full of food, we were ready to take on some wineries. More about that next. 😉
