Nice diner on the Lighthouse Rte, near Bayswater

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.

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

Came upon this restaurant and decided to try it. Wow! Very fresh, great flavors and the best coconut cream pie we've ever had. Obviously someone in the kitchen enjoys what they do & puts much love into each dish. Thank you for the fabulous meal.

Nice older diner down the road from Peggy's Cove and Tantallon. Nice supper and friendly folks. Average food with smallish portions. Quiet & reasonable.

We were a group of six and we stopped here for lunch during our day tour of the area. We had the lobster rolls and mushrooms, and both were good. We had good service and enjoyed our lunch.

We stopped at Finer Diner with our tour guide Les, and enjoyed a good lunch. The server was very nice and attentive. The views of the cove were beautiful and I have lots of pictures! The fish fillets my husband had were worth bragging about to our fellow cruise passengers. I had a lobster roll and it was good. I... More

It's the attention to detail, the never miss... More
