Amelia’s Garden is seasonal dining at its best. With many ingredients supplied by local food producers, Amelia’s Garden is a taste of the best Prince Edward County has to offer. The focus on local ingredients doesn’t mean that the menu is ordinary, as our team adds international flair, fusing different cuisines from around the world. Sourcing locally-produced food is a priority which means The Waring House relies on many local food producers and suppliers. The Waring House is proud to have its own kitchen garden, lovingly designed and tended by Syrian émigré Abdel-Malek and landscape design artist Kim Katanik-Kuris. Our garden, and the surrounding family farms, help ensure that during the growing season, the produce on your plate was grown, not kilometres, but mere metres away, and harvested that morning for your dining enjoyment. Amelia’s Garden offers many different menus throughout the year, so our online menu is only a sample. Most of our accommodation packages feature dinner in Amelia’s Garden. Although we try to accommodate walk-ins, dinner reservations are recommended.
