  • We went to the village twice. First time was for breakfast - stopped in at the coffee shop and had excellent breakfast sandwiches and specialty coffees. Walked the village and the volunteers were keen...  more »
  • Although all shops and restaurants, the building are historical and still quite interesting. A great little place to get away for a break from the rest of the Cavendish tourist scene.  more »
  • Visiting PEI off season many places are naturally closed. This site was partly open, and we enjoyed walking around. I would love to revisit when it's fully open.  more »

  • Very cute and fairly touristy. The outsides of the buildings are old looking with modern shops inside. You can get local art in most of the art stores. The Anne store is cute, if a little commercial. You can get a couple local beers from the restaurants but no local wine. The food is generally good, depending on which place you go, obviously. This is not an immersion experience for Anne of Green Gables but it's a cool place to stop, shop, and eat.
  • I used to love Avonlea Village. There used to be actors playing iconic scenes from Anne of green Gabel. Traditional music being played at the barn. You could have spent an afternoon and never think of leaving. Now this is all gone and only shops and restaurants are left. The entrance is now free because they are aiming on revenue from the concessions.
  • We went to Samuel's Coffee House and it was fantastic. They had some very friendly kids options and specialty coffees for us parents. They had almond and soy milks for us vegans, which was great. They have separate breakfast and lunch/dinner menus. We were there at breakfast, but just grabbed something light - cinnamon toast, which was a childhood treat for me. Outside Samuel's there is an Artisan Donuts, Cow's Creamery as well as a pizza/pasta place. You can't miss Boom Burger in the old church. There are a few shops to check out too, not many, maybe 4, 1 of which was antiques and 1 being Anne of Green Gables based. It's a neat little 'village' to hit up for lunch from the beach or, as in my case, you want a coffee and a walk around.
  • We went here for lunch and ice cream. It was a good pit stop for a stroll and food and I’m told less crowded than the boardwalk. I felt the charm had been replaced by well organized touristy planning. We ate delicious grilled cheese at Moos Moos and ice cream at Cows.
  • Perfect place to stop and eat or shop. Lots of fun stores and different restaurants to try like a burger bar in an old church, artisan pizzas, and lobster rolls. We stumbled on this place but were so glad we did! A must see in Cavendish area.
