Fish n’ Chips at Pleasant St. Diner

Dartmouth Pizza Quest: Cole Harbour

I realize that Cole Harbour is not technically part of Dartmouth, but it makes sense to include it within the Dartmouth Pizza Quest, so here it is! Much thanks to our hosts, Ann & Gil for their wonderful hospitality! Ann’s watermelon agua fresca and rhubarb pies almost stole the show! We ordered pizzas from the following: Anapolie Pizza Alexandra’s Pizza […]
