  • We had seen this big apple on the side of the road once before.But it was only after renting a cottage at Presqu'ile Park that we actually went to the Big Apple. It is a great place. Lots to do and se...  more »
  • Who can not be influenced by a very large red happy apple to produce a smile. Great produce and baked goods. 
  • Who could resist that happy face painted on a giant apple. We are driving to Montreal on the 401 and i just had to pull over to see what this Big Apple was all about. This is restaurant/gift shop/cand...  more »

  • So happy my friend and I were driving East bound on the highway and had seen the signs. Everything about this place is a great experience. They have a large candy / gift shop. I like the large windows that allow guests to see into the bakery and watch the pies being made. I was pleasantly surprised they also had a cafeteria inside with different food options. Also for someone who is gluten intolerant I'm very happy they had a gluten free pie available. It was pretty pricey at $17 but I believe it was money well spent. The pie is massive and it's not too sweet. I bought some other treats and hot apple cider. I was there in the fall. I'm sure in the summer there are many activities happening.
  • Great food ! Very over priced though so be prepared to spend lots of money if with family. Especially the apple cider is hideously expensive but tastes great. Wish they delivered or shipped out some of their products but they don't. Serious over site in my humble opinion as they would definitely make more money ! Location could also be better of course but I'm nit picking. Try it you'll like it as not another place like it !!
  • Great place to grab some apple caramel crumble pie! Best to just sit down there and eat one, and take another to go. They were out of pumpkin pie by the time we got there at 6pm...
  • Interesting place to get pies and pastries. They have all types of food such as pizza, ribs and sandwiches. Mini golf, table tennis and a train ride for the kids. Also have wild rabbits on the grounds.
  • You can climb up on the big apple. It is actually an observatory! They had some farm animals outside and our kids liked seeing them. They also had other outdoor attractions like mini putt, bocce and train rides. Only thing we didn't like was the baked goods we bought were not very fresh.
