The Bacon Scallop wrap is our favorite. Cooked to perfection and always a taste treat we allow ourselves as a special reward for ourselves. Their apres-wrap treats are a nice bonus too. Yes Cookies!

Great lunch spot in Shelburne. The sandwiches are fantastic and the coffee is also very good. The view across the street is perfect.

We had breakfast here. There is a limited menu but the food was well prepared and came to us quickly. The bathroom is SO tiny that you'd have to step out to change your mind. Gluten free options too which is always nice to find....More

We stopped in here a few times during our stay near Shelburne. The coffee was good. There was a good selection of delicious home baked sweets. We also enjoyed their sandwiches for lunch one day. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed.

An interesting eating place in an old building right on the waterfront. Good fresh food served in a variety of small rooms. The fresh scallops were delicious. There are outside tables too. Washroom is on the snug side.

This small cafe and restaurant is located in a historic old building on the waterfront. Cookies and goodies appeared to house baked but I had a very tasty omelet. The coffee wasn't bad for Nova Scotia.
