  • As with many people, knowing what a great little village this was with the actors and skits, wagon rides, square dance and children’s parade, and much more. returning there was a great disappointment....  more »
  • When this place opened years ago, it used to charge admission. Once inside the village, you would see people dressed in period costumes putting on little plays and singing/playing musical instruments....  more »
  • We went during a weekend end of June. Only 2-3 stores were opened. The entire area was deserted. Nothing on their website or at the entrance indicates shops aren't opened. Very disappointed.  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 I felt the charm had been replaced by well organized touristy planning.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.
