Things to Do in Kingston, ON Part III: Restaurants, Hotels and Downtown Activities

- Meghan

Kingston is a huge University/tourist town. With three universities: Queens University, Royal Military College and Saint Lawrence College there is much to do that applies to younger people. It’s also a hotspot for tourists with its numerous museums and attractive waterfront. Several hotels are located right on the water such as the Radisson and Howard Johnson.

There are many restaurants as well—too many to name, but I’ll mention a few of my favorites. My family’s personal favorite is Wooden Heads. You can get personal pizzas, salads and many other interesting dishes. I love the Brie al Forno which is cinnamon pecan brie cheese wrapped in phylo paper with a fruit glaze. Another favorite is Cambodian Village which serves Cambodian and Thai food. It’s a tiny little place but there’s always people in there. My favorite there is the Spicy Chicken dish.

If you’re looking for a more formal place to dine, Chez Piggy would be the place to go. You have the choice of sitting inside or outside, as many of the other restaurants do as well. The menu is very extensive, there’s bound to be something you’ll enjoy! Chez Piggy’s sister restaurant/bakery is Pan Chancho. They have great salads and sandwiches for lunch or dinner and a large bakery section where you can buy pastries and bread.

A nice place for a more casual meal would be Lone Star which serves Mexican food such as fajitas, enchiladas, quesadillas and also burgers and chicken. All of these places are in walking distance of the waterfront so a fun thing to do is to grab an ice cream from White Mountain and enjoy it by the water. There’s often live music near the waterfront as well. Every summer the Buskers come to Kingston which is a group of street performers who stay for a few days and perform near the waterfront.
