Pelee Island has got a lot of heart thanks to Conorlee’s. Well thanks to Rickolte’s healthy, fresh and tasty food with a lot of love and passion incorporated. Also the outdoor decor is fabulous: a tree-lined seating area with beautiful, welcoming, vibrant orange picnic tables.
I loved my smoked turkey wrap with pickeled turnip and avocado mayo. Also the rice salad special with fresh ginger was superannuation the perfect combo.
And her assortment of baked goods are the perfect companion for the ferry ride back. I loved the Bug Lebowski: a sweet cream cheese in a butter glazed pastry. But her chocolate chips cookies are utter perfection with an amazing chocolate chipped centre.
Not only is she the bakery/deli owner, she’s also the cook and baker as well as an artist of these lovely hand painted mugs and wine glasses. I got the tree painted one and I found out the wine tastes better because of The Rickolte’s added. :)) Oh, and that’s not all, she’s also the islands yoga teacher!
While you are at Pelee Island be sure to:
- Lunch at Conorlee’s and pizza dinner takeout from here too

- Enjoy the amazing Perch and Pickerel at The Anchor & Wheel Inn restaurant on their patio.
