“Wish we lived in Wallace”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

As we were leaving, my husband told the proprietor that he wished he lived in Wallace! This is a wonderful, colourful restaurant in a tiny village overlooking the harbour. Fabulous food. Great service. An absolute delight.

“Charming cafe good wholesome food that will leave you dreaming of your next visit.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

What a delightful surprise this unique cafe was to discover. On the main drag of a beautiful seaside village Whirligigs offers a menu of good old Nova Scotia favorites. Try the eggs Benny over fishcakes or if not so inclined they have the old standard bacon and eggs with hash browns. Both are excellent! The atmosphere is eclectic, mixing old world charm with seaside influence. Great experience, excellent service, delicious food.

“Killer Breakfast”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

This easy to find cafe is a perfect spot to stop for breakfast! The restaurant is spotless. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Their menu is the perfect size, offering a variety of items that will please everyone. We decided on the Smoked Salmon Bagel and Blueberry Pancakes. Everything was made fresh to order, hot and delicious! If we are ever back in the area we would most defiantly make a point of going back!

Went after seeing the reviews and were not disappointed. Blueberry pancakes were full of blueberries and delicious smoke salmon was delicious. Definitely worth a detour to Wallace
