Lakeland Eateries

I recently spent three nights at Anglin Lake with my family and I was, as always, on the lookout for good places to eat. Here are a few that we discovered.

Yellow Fender Eatery, Christopher Lake
What a delight to find a place that serves not one but two vegetarian main courses. The Lentil-Walnut Veggie Burgers are excellent. There are also quesadillas. And there are picnic tables outside.

A review on Flora Bora Forest Lodging’s website provides additional information.

Angry Taco, Waskesiu
So, how can you resist a place that calls itself the Angry Taco? The d├ęcor is lots of fun, and we enjoyed the food. Don’t miss the cornbread, which was really good.

Copper Ridge Dining Room, Elk Ridge Resort
 For a more elegant meal in fancier surroundings, head just outside the park to Elk Ridge Resort. The high-ceilinged dining room looks out over a pond surrounded by woods.

We were very impressed to find that our waiter had spoken with the kitchen and made sure that there were several vegetarian options for us to choose from. The Mushroom Ravioli were really good, and they prepared a vegetarian pasta as well.

Shananigan’s, Prince Albert
After a rainy couple of days, we were delighted when the sun came out, and we could sit on the outdoor patio at Shananigan’s (2144 6th Avenue West, Prince Albert). The interior was really attractive as well and would be a cosy place for a hot drink and a good book on a rainy day.

I had cream of tomato and basil soup that was obviously made from scratch. Instead of blending everything together, it was a cream soup with chunks of tomato – absolutely delicious!

Where do you like to eat when you head north from Saskatoon to lake country?
