Treat yourself to a locally sourced meal or a light snack in Niagara. —By Viviane Kertész

FOUR-DIAMOND DINING
Locavores rejoice at Escabèche at the Prince of Wales Hotel, where chef Andrew Dymond perfectly plates the county’s bounty. Sommelier Fred Gamula can advise a stellar pick from the resto’s 8,000-bottle cellar.

GEORGIAN MANSION
French dishes inspired by the best of Canada’s West Coast and the Niagara area are on the table at elegant Tiara Restaurant at Queen’s Landing thanks to ultra-capable chef James Olberg.

A ROOM WITH A VIEW
Eating at Elements On The Falls is the next best thing to picnicking on a magic carpet over the cascading water. Savour foods with an artisan twist amid unfussy elegance.

Indulge in the Victorian-era tradition of afternoon tea in the Drawing Room of the Prince of Wales Hotel.

TEA TIME
Delightful tiers of raisin scones, petit-fours, crustless cheddar-and-chutney sandwiches and jasmine tea await at the Drawing Room of the Prince of Wales Hotel.

TREATS FOR LATER
At retail complex Table Rock is Pop & Lolly’s (6650 Niagara Pkwy., 1-905-358-3268), a can’t-miss candy stop. There’s always a Lollyologist on duty handcrafting lollypops, confectionary apples or the shop’s famous caramel corn.
