Things To Do
Central Coastal Drive
Savour the Delights
Follow the aroma to MOO MOO Grilled Cheese, and wash down the delicious oozy crusty bread with a raspberry cordial – Anne’s personal favorite! Finish your perfect day with a good old fashioned creamy COWS ice cream, served in a fresh handmade waffle cone, created one at a time – right at the counter.
Avonlea Village offers an experience in genuine Island hospitality showcasing delicious food and quaint shopping! It is open seasonally from June to September.
Avonlea is the fictitious name that Lucy Maud Montgomery gave Cavendish in her famous novel, Anne of Green Gables. Avonlea Village consists of purpose-built structures combined with heritage ones – to re-create the fictional 19th century hometown of the loveable heroine, Anne Shirley.
Take a stroll through tranquil flower gardens and down the red dirt roads around the prettiest village on the Island.
Feeling hungry? Avonlea is a food (and Anne) lover’s dream. There are many incredible restaurants to decide between – ensuring there is something for everyone. Try a delicious MOO MOO Grilled Cheese, an authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizza from Piatto Pizzeria, the ultimate lunch of Dave’s Lobster Rolls, a piece of Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie paired with fresh coffee from Samuel’s, the most delicious burger around from BOOMBurger, or of course, a scoop (or three!) of COWS ice cream. Not only is the food amazing, but it is made from the Island’s locally produced products – supporting farmers and the community.
Once you’re happy and full, explore the unique stores that showcase artisan crafts and talent. Discover the iconic Anne of Green Gables Store, the Avonlea Artisan Studio, and who could forget to pick up a treat for the road at Anne of Green Gables Chocolates on their way out?
The charm of Avonlea will never fail to make your vacation one to remember!
