“Fantastic Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We stopped by the cafe on our way to Lunenberg. It was recommended by the local tourist information center as a unique place for breakfast. We all had the Eggs Benedict. The food was phenomenal, especially the Hollandaise sauce. We sat out back on the patio as it was a beautiful day. The owners were very friendly and attentive. Through chatting with them we found out that one was from NJ… just like us. Small world!!!

We went there for lunch and the service was good, very friendly staff, the food was excellent, prices very reasonable and they have a lovely patio where we were allowed to have our dog tied up with us. They made sure she had water and a biscuit too :) Highly recommend!

“Destination Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

This is the loveliest place. I come here to eat a few times a summer, making the trip from Halifax. The beverage and food menu are so wonderfully balanced with local beers, and ciders as well as lunch options. I was recommended a delish black tea in substitute of my go to Earl Grey and it was served in a beautiful china set. The soup was hot, the sandwich plentiful and the surroundings were perfect. Thank you again for a lovely experience.

“A Must Stop In Mahone Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Years ago, the Biscuit Eater was our favourite place while we were visiting in the area for a week. We were delighted to find it has maintained its charm and it remains our favourite. And they have comfortable t-shirts to bring home as gifts!
