Eek! Hunger emergency!
What does one do when faced by a crisis situation such as this, right there on the Victoria wharf?
If one has a brain (and this one does), one hightails it straight up the street to the wonderful Landmark Café and prays that it has an open spot for two.

Located across from the Victoria Playhouse, the Landmark Café occupies a small, cozy storefront teeming with shelves filled with crockery, pots, jars, and more, some of which is for sale. But the effect is more funky than Ye Olde Quainte, and the limited menu is inviting. Daily offerings might include steamed mussels, vine leaves with feta cheese, salads, lasagna, a meat pie, or a salmon steamed in tarragon.
We ate in many restaurants while in PEI, and the Landmark Cafe was the best. This family run establishment had all the elements for a great evening - service, food, ambiance. We ate there 3X and we were never disappointed. I can't wait to eat there again when we visit PEI.
