Eating out

It is easy to find a restaurant by strolling through the downtown area, bounded by Queen Street on one side and Brunswick Street on the other (See map). Some are listed below.On Saturday morning, one can also eat at one of the kiosks in the Boyce Farmer's market (665 George St., more details in the next section.)

Brewbakers 546 King St.

The Cellar, basement of the S.U. building on the UNB campus, open 11am until late. Probably the most convenient lunchtime choice. Has a patio.

Dimitri's 349 King St., Excellent and inexpensive Greek food. Several other dining places are located nearby.

El Burrito Loco 304 King St, Good but somewhat expensive Mexican food.

Mei's Chinese Restaurant 74 Regent St.., Small and unpretentious restaurant, with fairly good chinese food.

Mexicali Rosa's 546 King St., Broad range of dishes, with a Mexican influence. Recommended in both “Fodor's” and “Where to eat in Canada.”

The Palate 462 Queen, eclectic, Swiss-influenced, restaurant.

Rye's Deli and Pub  73 Carleton St., Sandwiches and pub food.

Smitty's Regent St. Mall. A fairly standard, unadventurous, restaurant. May be of interest to those staying in the City Inn or the Fredericton Inn.

Snooty Fox 66 Regent St., A British-style pub

More restaurants

Other Information

On Saturday morning, one can visit the Boyce Farmer's Market, a very popular local institution. A range of meats, cheeses, and baked goods is available, and it is possible to eat a delicious breakfast or lunch there. In addition to the indoor dining area, there are street vendors selling a wide range of food and snacks (the Thai food stall is especially recommended).

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery is right next to the Lord Beaverbrook hotel, and packs a lot into a small space. It is well worth a visit, and has several Dalis, as well as works by the Group of Seven, Botticelli, Constable, etc. Only abour four percent of the permanent collection is on display at any one time, so there is always something new to see. We have a number of free tickets for the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, please inquire after arrival if interested.

Fredericton has several walking trails, one of which runs right behind the Beaverbrook Hotel, by the St. John river. It leads to a footbridge across the river, from which there is a nice view of the downtown area.


 

Travel

By air: Most people will be flying to Fredericton via Toronto, Halifax, or Montreal. The Fredericton airport is currently being enlarged, and there are plans to offer direct international flights from Boston in the USA, and possibly from somewhere in Europe also. Upon arrival, one can take a taxi to any of the downtown hotels or bed-and-breakfast establishments for about $20. For example, A1 Taxis, who charge according to a zone system, can be reached by phone at 455-4444. Another company is Trius at 454-4444.

By road Fredericton is on the Trans-Canada highway (Highway 2). Take the Regent St. exit (Downtown Fredericton), and then either follow more specific instructions obtained from your hotel or bed-and-breakfast, or refer to a map.

Maps of the campus, and region are available online. A 5-day weather forecast is also available.
