We stopped in Antigonish on our way to Baddeck NS. The food was great, with everything made in house. The lemonade was superb: lemony and not too sweet. The fish was fresh with a crispy thin coating and the tartar sauce was tasty.

Probably the best place for comfort food and home cooking for miles. Breakfast menu is pretty standard but also includes a crab eggs Benedict and a long number of omelet choices.

Stopped for dinner here early in June while staying in town, a quiet evening and we arrived on the later side but were well looked after. Food was good quality and reasonably priced.

This is a very popular restaurant in Antigonish. We stopped in but didn't stay to eat. Their menu did not offer much for my teen daughter, who is a plain Jane picky eater. I would have tried it, had she not been with me.More

Jo Ann, So sorry your daughter felt there weren't options for her. However, our chef is very accommodating and would have been happy to make a "traditional" cheese burger, chicken fingers, mac n cheese or something of the sort - many of our menu options...More

I’m not really sure. However I know they have the coconut cream pie, sticky toffee pudding, deep fried cheesecake... There’s so many it’s hard to remember. They’re all made from scratch too. Delicious!! :)
