DOUGIE'S DINER

An egg skillet breakfast or classic bacon & eggs combo from Dougie's Diner is just what you need to get going ahead of the day's adventures. Add on a side of fluffy pancakes if you're extra hungry because you skipped the marshmallows at the campsite (just kidding, always add pancakes). A cup or two of coffee and you're ready to conquer Quinte.

DINNER AT MONTANA'S

Continue your 'outback' experience with a BBQ dinner at Montana's. There's no better way to end an adventurous day than with fall-off-the-bone ribs or an Apple Pecan Harvest Salad if the grill isn't your thing. Pair with an ice-cold pint and enjoy reflecting on your favourite parts of your Bay of Quinte adventure.
