Cottage Country Comfort Food

You’re not spending hours chewing through traffic to get here, so why zip through a typical drive thru window to pick up a quick bite en route to the lake?

Chip Trucks in Peterborough & the Kawarthas are all over the map –covering the corners of our county. And let’s face it: french fries are a comforting indulgence and classic cottage country fare. The simplicity of a potato, cut into hearty steak cut fries or small shoestring fries, seasoned up, fried golden brown and served with a genuine smile.

Craving something golden, rich & squeaky? Poutine is a way to bite right into the Canadian way of life. And it is readily available at chip trucks throughout the area.

When you’re cottage bound and your tummy is grumbling, we recommend swinging by one of these great locations on the Chip Truck Trail through the Kawarthas.
