Started by two childhood friends, Red Island Cider exists to share the homey feeling of PEI with everyone that comes in. They source their apple juice from PEI and Nova Scotia orchards, keeping it local.
Delicious sips with no guilt. Upstreet offers seltzers, non-alcoholic beers, and low calorie quenchers – 100 calories or less! Pair it with a pizza or sandwich for a satisfying afternoon on the island.
Tired? Coffee. Awake? Beer! Bar1911 has the best of both worlds for whatever mood you’re feeling. If you’re lucky, you’ll visit them on their live stand-up comedy night for great entertainment while you eat!
Baked Goods and Cafes
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, visit Casa Mia all day. They’ve just added mouthwatering pizzas to their menu, but a breakfast taco sounds hard to beat!

The 5th Wave Espresso & Tea Bar
Two friends who always joked about opening a cafe together made their dream a reality. With an eco-conscious standpoint and a penchant for great coffee, this coffee bar born out of COVID circumstances is the newest coffee bar in town.
This activity bar and board game lounge is a perfect stop when you want to get out of the RV for a few hours. They also offer take-away craft kits for the kids. This is a more adult-centric place, they recommend ages twelve and up, and nineteen and up after 8pm as they are a licensed bar. Though there is an all-ages area on the main floor!
Made with 100% fresh island beef and served on a bun grilled with Cows Creamery butter, served with their cheese, this is the pinnacle of local support. Order it with a side of poutine or fries to make it a filling meal.
What’s a trip to the Maritimes without lobster? A waste… or an allergy, which we understand. For the shellfish lovers, Dave’s is hailed by Globe & Mail as the best lobster rolls in the world. With a review like that, how can you skip it?
Tired of being on the road? Switch out for the water! Nimrod’s offers floating dining experiences. Snack on their wood-fired pizza and refreshing cocktails while being soothed by the gentle waves of Charlottetown’s waterfront.
