PE is not a pretty city. And Valley Rd is one of the last places you would expect to find a friendly stranger. But you will find the Friendly Stranger, on Upper Valley Road in a stone building that used to be the harbour master’s house.
There is a downstairs lounge with very low ceiling that is different, a retreat from the chic coffee shop upstairs.
The menu includes salads, burgers, flatbreads, nachos, pies and steaks. Next door there is a micro brewery and coffee roastery, making this another food focused destination
