Kingston Eats: Harper’s Burger Bar

Harper’s is a gourmet burger restaurant and only fresh high quality and local seasonal ingredients are used.  I am a picky eater when it comes to any dough-related food.  Their burger bun is fresh made in store and is definitely not your average supermarket burger bun (which I loathe).  The menu is designed to marry very unique flavours together.  Service is very good too.  On the downside I find it to be much overpriced (compare to any other upscale burger joints you can find in other cities or even just other restaurants).

℘ Harper’s is a member of “Local Food Local Chef”, a Kingston initiative to promote the area as a destination of culinary tourism.

℘ Sister restaurants with Le Chien Noir & Atomica.
