An unassuming little gem!

I don't always assume that a side-of-the-road cafe is likely to be a fine dining experience, but the Trellis Cafe has changed my preconceived notion. The little cafe was wonderful, surpassing the soft but positive recommendation from a friend. My wife and I shared, as we often do, an entrée and a... read more

Ate here with my husband and children. My son ordered the ice tea which was highly reccommended at 3.50 a glass. It tasted like watered down tang. I ordered the lamb burger and it was very dry and over cooked. Also do not take the reccomendations of the waiter who says everything is delicious. I do not reccomend eating here... More

I've eaten at the Trellis several times over the past 5 years, but the recent menu is completely over priced. Each item is a minimum of $5 too high. $19.95 for a montreal-style smoked meat sandwich, which is three times higher than Schwartz's in Montreal?! $25 for a blue cheese tortellini in a small roadside cafe is simply exorbidant, and...

The service was excellent, facility was clean - food was delicious! If busy, you may have to wait 5-10 minutes for your food order.

Myself and 3 other couples stopped here for breakfast. Their weekend breakfast special is eggs benedict done in a variety of ways. I had the smoked salmon variety. It was delicious. It came with garden salad and potato salad, a bit unusual to serve with eggs, but tasty.

Arrived before lunch and the staff said "lunch will be ready for you." Excellent food and service. The chowder was very good and the desserts are sumptuous.

Came here for brekkie with my wife and had fantastic service, was pretty empty, but the servers weren't hovering, which is nice, and something I find common when the places are slow. I went mid week, mid morning to avoid any rush, and really enjoyed the drive, and the food :)

Sorry, I wish I could give this a good review. We were really looking forward to going there. I can't recommend it. I expected it to be at least 'good', but it was terrible. It was under grade and less than medicore at Trellis. I ordered a salad. I asked for the extra, sliced chicken, to top off the salad.... More

Little did we know that pulling off the HWY for a bite to eat at a "fast" food joint would turn into a Nova Scotia experience - it was absolutely delicious and wished we could have gone back for another meal! Here's what meals were ordered - the men had the beef hamburger (I believe it was on a homemade... More
