Thanks so much for the 5 star review and the endorsement to be the first stop! The pizza ovens are setup and Postoffice Pizza is serving some NY style pies to foodies visiting Grand Manan! Hope to see you back this year!

We had a delicious pizza on the deck... while watching the fishing boats come and go. Take a leisurely walk around the wharf after your meal.
