“Fantastic baking, amazing sandwiches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

This is a lovely place to stop on your way to Peggy's Cove. It overlooks a lovely bay, with plenty of colourful chairs and picnic tables, and offers up some of the thickest sandwiches you can imagine. They smoke their own Montreal smoked meat, roast fresh turkeys for the clubhouse sandwich, and grind their own beef for their angus burgers and cabbage rolls. The baking is amazing - one of the best apple pies we've ever had, and the sweet potato bread is great toasted with butter.

The only downside is that they close for a few months in the winter, so locals go through withdrawal during the cold, snowy months.

Great spot, fantastic staff and owners. :)

“The most imaginative rolls, sandwiches and salads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

I do not think I have ever had such a tasty, HUGE sandwhich in my life. We ate outside as the sun was warm altho Autumn, and we really should have ordered one meal between two. Soup was my husbands choice, verdict on that, delicious! Very busy at lunch time,the staff were helpful in translating the various ingredients for me, not my Canadian grand-daughter of course.
It was an experience..

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

If you are in the area, you need to drive here and take in the food. Homemade goodness that rivals any fine dining establishment for taste. The smoked meat is so good, you will think you are in Montreal. Same goes for the poutine. I would suggest everything

“Pleasant stop away from the bustle of Peggy's Cove”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Hard to miss by its colourful exterior of both the building and the chairs outside. Good parking space with disabled places. Pleasant area to sit outside in the trees by the bay with good views. Range of sandwiches, rolls and pastries as well as some cooked items on the menu.

It's a good stop if like me you want to get away from the bustle at Peggy's Cove and get locally prepared food. There's good range of take away produce too, if you want to head off elsewhere to have it. Certainly I would stop by when next in the area.

“Yummy!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Our tour guide suggested this restaurant as a great stop on our tour of Peggy's Cove. Sandwiches were awesome. The owner gave us samples of some local pastries.... yum.
Picnic tables and chairs out by the water. Great place to sit and enjoy the view.
