A Neat Little Gem
Nestled amongst some eye-catching gift shops and places to stay in South Baymouth, stands a wonderful little pizzeria. People often ask me where they can eat when they’re visiting the Island. I always recommend the places that I’ve been to and love. Last week was the first time I had eaten at this quaint little pizza place. Hubby decided that I needed a rest from cooking and he took me out for a ‘date’.
Hubby has always raved about this pizza place and I have passed by it on many occasions, but have never had a chance to try it out. Usually when I’m in South Baymouth, it’s to see off friends or family who are taking the ferry across to Tobermory or I’m there when I’m taking students on day trips. The pizzeria is conveniently located right beside the WigWam Gift Shop & Motel and across from the ferry terminal.
Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that I’m not much of a meat fan and I don’t really like pizza. *gasp* I know…I’m sorry! We eat a lot of veggie based food in our house and I’m not big on carbs (much to Hubby’s chagrin, I guess)! However, I have for some unexplainable reason been really wanting a meatball sub! I had the meatball sub and Hubby had the pizza sub. The portions were gigantic! Hubby was pleased! I ended up giving the rest of my sub to Hubby, who gladly obliged. A+ for the subs.
We mentioned this pizza place to my parents and today Hubby and I picked up two pizzas to bring over to Ma and Pa so none of us would have to cook supper tonight. Hubby chose the Hawaiian pizza and the Deluxe pizza. The Hawaiian has just the right amount of sweetness from the pineapple to add a nice contrast to the ham. The Deluxe is fully loaded for all those out there who love their pizza toppings. The Deluxe is by far Hubby’s number one pick. Just driving home with the pizzas in my front seat with the aroma wafting throughout the car made my mouth water! Remember, I don’t eat pizza often, but Hubby was right. This pizza is really good!This is what I mean about being fully loaded!
I know it may seem like I’m a really lenient grader, but I give the pizzas an A+ too. I don’t like too much crust and I don’t like really greasy pizza. To me, there’s nothing worse than really thick, dry, chewy pizza crust. Actually, I suppose grease dripping from the pizza could be worse! This pizza was perfect. The prices at the pizzeria are reasonable and the portions are huge. My suggestion: You don’t have to eat everything in one go! Whatever you order, only eat half and take the rest home with you…unless you’re really that hungry. The portions are guaranteed to leave you feeling
satiated content very full satisfied! We will definitely be frequenting this neat little gem and will recommend it to all those we know.
As I was walking into the pizzeria to pick up the pizzas, a young man and woman were waiting for the MS ChiCheemaun to take them across to Tobermory and returned to the pizzeria for another slice of pizza. They had ordered and eaten their pizza and were off to their vehicle, when the guy wanted to go back so he could take some pizza home with him! The guy was going on and on about how amazing the pizza was. He was right!
If you are waiting for the ferry, why not stop in and have a slice of pizza or an ice cream cone? You will be very impressed. This is not just a pizzeria, but it also doubles as an Internet Cafe. All you travelers who simply must check your e-mail or send word to family that you have arrived safely on this beautiful island, will be pleased to know that yes, there is indeed internet access on the Island! The internet service is actually really good here. I know that the point of going on vacation on a magical island like this one entails “unplugging” from everything high tech, but if you do need to use the internet, at least you know of one place where you can have access to the internet!For more restaurant reviews, click here.
