Posted on Saturday June 10, 2017 at 10:13AM
Shopping, running errands, relaxing in the great outdoors, they all take a certain amount of energy, don’t they? When blood sugar runs low, revive spirits by dropping in at one of these eateries at The Village at Pigeon Lake. You won’t be disappointed.
This casual spot for breakfast and lunch also doubles as a community hub. Plenty of friendly locals settle in each day for coffee and a slice of ribbon-worthy pie. A tray of freshly baked cinnamon buns will no doubt catch your eye immediately upon entry. Rest your eyes lower down the display case, and you’ll spot numerous homemade pies and other baked goodies whipped up the old fashioned way.
Home-style breakfasts range from egg dishes to Belgian Waffles to French Toast and hearty muffins. For lunch, you’ll be spoiled for choice with a wide variety of mile-high sandwiches, salads and soups served up with a freshly made roll. Bonus: the quintessential camping treat - Taco in a Bag is also available to order.
Families are most welcome, as evidenced by the selection of toys ready to occupy wee ones. But beware! Your children’s attention is sure to be diverted at some point by the candy corner brimming with all sorts of sugary treats. You just might find a retro favourite from your youth in there, too! And who could say no to lingering over an ice cream cone, as you stroll around The Village shops? Saddling up to the ice cream counter is the sweetest ending to any meal.
Village Pizza and Subs
It doesn’t get much better than sinking your teeth into a just-out-of-the-oven slice of pizza. We’re talking about the thick and gooey pizza pies served up at Village Pizza and Subs. Perfectly crisp on the bottom, these pizza crusts are quickly approaching cult status, thanks to being lovingly made in-house each and every day.
Crowd favourite, the Village Special is loaded with pepperoni, ham, salami, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and black olives all piled high. For a new take on steak, the Alberta Beef Pizza is topped with thin slices of roast beef. Take a break from tradition and try their Mexican, Donair or Perogy pizzas - they’re like two meals in one.
The best part? You can snag a single slice from the counter or choose to sit down for a relaxing meal. The full service restaurant also offers take-away, and let’s just say it’s not an uncommon sight to catch boaters loading up on several pizzas for their day on the lake. Large groups do well taking advantage of the catering menu, plus a seniors and children’s menu ensures every member of your family is well taken care of.
Besides pizza and wonderfully warm subs, an array of sandwiches, wraps, salads and finger foods are also available. For a cozy meal, opt for the baked spaghetti or thick and rich lasagne. With meat sauce made from scratch, you know you can’t go wrong.
When you need just a little something to satisfy your sweet tooth, darting into Chringall's Workshop is the way to go. Locals live for their mouthwatering array of homemade fudge, and with so many varieties to choose from, you’ll have your work cut out for you. If you’re looking for something more savoury, try a bite of their aromatic apple fritters. And be sure to snap up some freshly roasted, cinnamon glazed nuts - because you never know when hungry may strike again.
