The perfect pair: wood fire pizza and wine at Huff Estates Winery

Although Prince Edward County is known for its incredible wine (we are in wine country after all), The County's expansive food scene should get you just as excited to visit. We love supporting local, and we think you will too. These are some of our favourite places to eat near The June in Picton, and trust us when we say it was difficult to narrow down this list. Beyond this list there are so many amazing restaurants to be found throughout The County, so keep exploring!

Keep in mind, reservations are a must where you can, and always check online for current opening days and hours as things are constantly changing between seasons. Also, some of our favourite places below aren't taking resrvations, so we suggest getting there right when they open to guarantee yourself a table and some delicious food!

What: Spanish inspired menu and cocktails, plus regional wine. They're the new kids in town, and we're very excited. Reservations available, which you'll definitely need for this new hot spot in town.
