“Cute and Clean”
Review of The Schoolhouse

The Schoolhouse
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 October 2015

We were staying in the golf resort at The Gables when we stopped for coffee and Danish at this location. Very cute old school house that has been converted to a Café. It is right next to the Community building in Stanley Bridge at 10 Schoolhouse Lane and at the beginning of the condo units of The Gables. Inside is a light and airy open room with counter service and a bar with chairs at the windows that stretch around the room. Here you can get baked goods, fresh sandwiches, boxed lunches, treats, cappuccinos, lattes and sodas. They use local businesses, growers and producers for their products. Just inside is a check-in for The Gables. and upstairs is a meeting room or event area. They will custom build a menu to suit your requirements for events. They also have a small building next door and a pizza oven for great pizzas. There is a sitting area next to the pizza oven. There is a nice handicap ramp to the café. I stopped there for coffee and a Danish that was fresh and good while I was washing clothes next door. They also have good reception for WiFi in the building. Friendly staff.

We'd passed this place several times this year en-route somewhere else, and finally stopped in.

Here we thought it was another funky old house converted/recycled into a funky new coffee shop (We like going to funky coffee shops!)

Wrong!

This café is part of the lodge complex known as "The Gables of PEI resort"

While there sitting at the narrow 'dining' area on a bar stool, patrons came and went. Some to pick up a coffee on the run, others to check into the resort.

The place was staffed with what looked to me like several BOOTM's* teenagers.

If you are looking for a cute funky café, this ain't it brother!

I had the fire oven potato pizza. It was ok but not a WoW. I would suggest a little less potato but more spice, onions, chicken. . . Also the sauce seemed cooler than the pizza dough and potatoes.

A very limited menu, but what they have is all very good. We had the wood-fired pizza, and they were very tasty, albeit very small individual pizzas.

Staying here at Gables. Thought it would be a nice break from all the seafood we've been eating. The crust was dry almost cracker like. Very few toppings & little sauce. The size of the pizza is embarassing for what they are charging. $13 to $15 for what would be called a personal pan pizza elsewhere. Make the pizza the size to fit the box!! Cost of dough is pennies. Really too bad because they have the stone oven and could make a fantastic product but they obviously choose not to. They messed up our order. They did stay past closing to make us a new one. We took the wrong pizza order back so they could see and they took it back. Seriously!? Good customer sevice would deem you just let customer keep wrong one anyway. Pathetic! Do not recommend! Do not go here! Absolute waste of money. Bank card in picture is to show how pathetic the size is.
