What a find! After a few hours of head turning beauty along the Lighthouse Trail ( Peggy's Cove to Lunenburg) we found The Finer Diner in Hackett's Cove. What a wonderful place. Bright, good view of a small harbor across the road, friendly people, great food and service. I had the seafood chowder, my wife had the turkey vegetable soup... More

We stopped at the Finer Diner for a quick lunch and were thrilled at the results. We both ordered soup - the beef barley and the seafood chowder. These came with tasty, warm, homemade biscuits. If you are at Peggy's Cove, make sure you stop there!

Good quality food, well prepared and served make this place my choice for any meal in the Peggy's Cove area. Friends and guests love it. Prices are very reasonable and the food is consistently prepared. The fish cakes are just like Mum used to make and the pies are excellent, especially the lemon meringue and rhubarb. The owner is an... More

Stopped here for a late lunch, warm welcome and excellent service. Chowder was tasty, and the lobster club sandwich was filling. Crowning glory was the lemon meringue pie, literally just like my mum used to make.

Enjoyed the Lobster Club Sandwich! Saw this diner multiple times passing by to go to Peggys Cove, and the Lobster Club Sandwich sign caught my eye. My grandparents are visiting for a few weeks, and they love lobster, so on the way to Peggys Cove we had to stop for lunch! Crissy was our waitress, and was very nice and... More

A group of us went for dinner and we all went away happy. The serves were good size and the quality was also good. We all enjoyed the meal and would return.

Stopped in on our ride along the coast, very clean and bright, staff was awesome. We ordered the fish and chips, and a cup of Seafood chowder with a salad. Great flavors. The chowder was very good, and the fish is fresh! You have to substitute regular chips for the sweet potato fries, they are fantastic, and come with a... More

We stopped at the Finer Diner after an afternoon at Peggy's Cove. We were the only patrons inside, and the food was most delicious. We started with the dahl appetizer...amazing! Followed by the lobster club which was yummy. We were hoping to have room for the homemade coconut cream pie, but unfortunately were too full...we'll just have to come back.... More

I go here for lunch several time a year, and enjoy the food. The owners are friendly and the food is fresh and home made. Menu varies - fish is always good - price is reasonible.
