The Best Foods to Eat in Canada

Updated August 1, 2022.

It’s that time of the week again–What I Ate Wednesday!–and this week we’re eating our way through Canada–specifically Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island (PEI). Get the melted butter ready–there’s loads of lobster to explore!


Lobster for breakfast? Sign me up! We also lucked out and found a couple of great cafes. Canadians know how to do a hearty, delicious breakfast!

Halifax Public Gardens Cafe: Date crumble bar, coffee, and veggie frittata!
Lobster omelette and toast from the Dundee Arms Inn on Prince Edward Island.
Receiver Coffee Company on PEI: BELT sandwich, which was bacon, egg, lettuce, tomato, lettuce, onion, and awesome sauce.
Lobster scramble with cheese and toast from a diner in Halifax!

Lobster again? You betchya! The best lobster roll I had the whole week came from a truck and is pictured below. My mom’s lobster chowder was amazing, and they even made the lobster salad incredible! We definitely took advantage of the lobster situation, especially since all PEI lobster is sustainably harvested!

The best lobster roll ever can be found on Prince Edward Island.

We like to think we earned our hearty suppers with all the walking we did every day. And even if we didn’t, we ate it anyway!
