As some of you know CFN has been the victim of a conspiratorial boycott led by City Hall since 2012. In its 4th year the tentacles sadly extend through the community. City Hall actually had their lawyer state that the largest newspaper in the community is a blog. A very odd thing to say, but […]
I don’t normally review food from chain restaurants, but my dining companion wanted Fish n Chips and we decided to try “the new place” which turned out to be our new Captain Georges in Cornwall. It felt odd being in what had been a lovely and colorful Mexican restaurant. The new decor is open […]
Urban renewal fascinates me so I was keen to check out and see what Esca Gourmet Pizza & Bar had done with the old LCBO across from City Hall in Cornwall Ontario. I brought a powerful lawyer with me just in case. I jest, lawyers like to eat too and my learned companion offered some […]
CORNWALL Ontario – Not every restaurant review has to be high end. One of our great CFN writers, Garden Girl (Dawn Jane Guay) cajoled me into taking her out to lunch and we thought what better way to go than do a review. While the original joint we wanted to try was closed […]
CFN – So we took a peek at 2015 so far and dug into some other establishments. All data comes from EOHU inspections. This is a random sampling. The Cornwall Curling Club’s banquet hall has never been inspected since inspections started being posted online in July 2012. Isn’t that odd? Many Halls and Community Centres […]
CORNWALL Ontario – Smart Cookie Francine Taillon won our contest and was closest to the pin in our CFN election contest. She collected her $25 gift certificate to Cedars on Wheels. Pierre and MIA posed with her (Jey was busy manning the cash). I had a Lamb Platter to go as I couldn’t stop […]
(my medium with lots o toppings) CORNWALL Ontario – I’m spoiled by Cornwall’s Old School Montreal style pizza. Joints like Riverside, North End, Roma’s, Cornwall BBQ and Louis all over the read deal. I’m a pizza prude. It’s pretty near impossible to get me to go to Box Store pizza joints like Boston Pizza, Dominoes, […]
CORNWALL Ontario – What makes a great pizza? Is it the crust? The cheese? The toppings? The sauce? All? While there’s a trend for factory style pizza and low cost cardboard like pizza Cornwall is blessed with some “Montreal style” old school pizza. The Cornwall Special is your traditional all dressed, pepperoni, mushrooms, […]

CORNWALL Ontario – The little restaurant on the corner of 3rd and Pitt in Downtown Cornwall Ontario has had a rough record with many trying, but few succeeding, but I have a good vibe about the new Cedar’s On Wheels which just opened. First off I love Shawarma. Love those garlic potatoes and sides that […]

My favorite Sushi in Cornwall Ontario!
I’m a big Sushi fan. I moved around a lot before settling here in Cornwall. Every time I moved to a different city, the first thing I did was look for the best sushi place. That is why I was so happy when Ruby Sushi opened a few months ago. One visit and I was […]
It wasn’t that long ago that Asian food in Cornwall Ontario was your old fashioned doughy pineapple chicken balls smothered in sugary cherry sauce and spare ribs. In the past five years many of the old school restaurants have closed and evolved. The former Jade Restaurant on 2nd Street East was remodeled and […]
There are two new cafés that have opened up recently in the SD&G area that have the good sense to use the best coffee in the area. The only coffee roasted locally and the freshest that they can buy. Of course I’m talking about Coffey’s Coffee. The first café is right here in scenic Ingleside […]

The 3 Willows Vegetarian Restaurant – A Meatless Oasis in Eastern Ontario by Reg Coffey – October 19, 2013
CFN – This terrific vegetarian restaurant can be found in a small industrial building on the Concession 9 Road between Green Valley and Glen Norman, not exactly a high traffic area for vegetarians, or anyone else for that matter. I found out about it from a customer in that area and stopped on my way […]
CFN– It’s always great to get a new eatery here in Cornwall Ontario; especially when you have a Chef that’s not afraid to be different and creative like Chef Christian Barque and his team at Bar Q which opened last week at the corner of Pitt Street and First. (The entrance is on First Street […]
