Eating out with Friends and Family at Maritime Express Cider in Kentville
Our aim is to eat our way around the Annapolis Valley, sharing great places to eat out with your friends and family including the Maritime Express Cider Company in Kentville!
In the fall of 2018, the former Cornwallis Inn in Kentville was magically transformed into the Maritime Express Cider Co.
The taproom offers a place to purchase a large selection of our growlers and bottles, while also providing a place to sit down and grab a pint. Take time to appreciate that the building was once known as one of Canada’s most architecturally beautiful hotels. In a rush? grab a bottle or growler of our cider to go. For the craft beer lovers, we also have a rotating selection of our favorite craft beer from around the province and beyond.
I’ve had quite a lot of their cider, and have liked everything I have tried, and plan on going back right away to refill our growler.
There’s lots to choose from.
However, this visit wasn’t about checking out the cider, it was actually about trying out their new sandwich menu!
Menu items change monthly to keep things interesting, but their famous Mixed Board is our constant.
I tried the Chicken mole sandwich with the most incredible raspberry mayo!
And my friend had the Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwich.
Both were absolutely delicious, and the prices are great! My goal is to make my way through the list.
Children are allowed in the cidery, and lots of families have come down to relax in the stone room, and have been known to grab one of the board games off the shelf.
For those not drinking alcohol, there is kombucha on tap as well as pop, juice and coffee.
There are lots of events happening at the cidery from live music to trivia nights, so make sure you follow their Facebook page to stay on top of what is going on.
