Bloomfield is one of the main towns in Prince Edward County. If you drive the Loyalist Parkway (Route 33) through The County, you’ll be driving right down Main Street in Bloomfield.
But, Bloomfield is small, so it’s kind of easy to drive right through unless you’re looking for it. Fortunately, there are some interesting shops and restaurants to keep an eye out for and stop at.
If you’re hungry, Bloomfield has a surprising selection of places great places grab a bite. Both Agrarian Bistro & Speakeasy and The Hubb at Angeline’s (Inn) are nice for lunch or dinner. Agrarian is owned run by the owners of Keint-he Winery & Vineyards. It’s a bit more pub-like and during the time between traditional lunch and dinner hours the menu is a limited. But, it’s a comfortable place to take a load off and relax, regardless of what time you’re there.
The Hubb (named after nearby Hubb Creek) is casual in appearance, but the food is upscale all the way. There are interesting combinations of flavours and textures and the plating is always picture-worthy (for those into that kind of thing).
If you’re in the mood for sandwiches or salads – or perhaps tea and a home-baked sweet – follow the sign and head down the laneway to the local favourite: Saylor House Café. And if you’re in the mood for something cool, join the line-up at popular Slickers Ice Cream. Their homemade ice cream is rich, creamy and worth waiting for.
Bloomfield’s Green Gables Gifts and Greetings is the kind of place you can lose yourself in – literally. The front of the store fools you into thinking you’re walking into a quaint little shop. As you make your way from room to room, you realized it’s huge – and easy to get lost in!
Bloomfield is also the home of the County’s best-known bike rental and repair shop: Bloomfield Bicycle Co. You can rent for the day or for an extended period.
