Find of the month: Poutine at Papa Joe’s

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

Recognizing a need in West Prince for a bar, family restaurant and some “hanging out” space, Dwayne and Crystal Costain took over an existing bar and have put their own distinct stamp on it. Route 145 Bar and Grill opened March 3, 2016. The determined couple knew folks needed a spot to sit down, have a good meal, have a drink, watch some

Restaurants push the evolution of a neighbourhood 

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

Something seems to be percolating in the east end of downtown Charlottetown. Formerly seen as a mecca for cruise shippers and other tourists, the place is starting to become an interesting place for residents as well.

To wit: the venerable Water Prince Corner Shop is staying open until December 15 this year—the theory

A good ribbing

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

One thing though. Sometimes they run out of ribs later in the evening so if anyone wants ribs it could be a gamble at that time.”

That was the text I received from my buddy Justin on a Wednesday afternoon early in November. Six of us were in Halifax for what was likely the biggest pool tournament in the history of Eastern Canada. There were 240 players and

Stone soup

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

Here then a little ode to a meal I have not eaten but whose very idea fills me with delight. A church in Murray Harbour is offering a free supper to their neighbours once a month—not because people need the food but because they need each other. It is perfect. All the words: community, communion, communing. All are defined by the simple cheer of a church hall and a
