At the Justamere Cafe & Bistro we pride ourselves in serving fresh flavourful foods with Something for Everyone in mind. Just-a-mere is a play on words emphasizing the laid back feel of our dining room where in the run of a day you will see business suits and work boots, among the young and the old. Now in our 7th year of business, we boast excellent cuisine in a relaxing and inviting atmosphere.

All day breakfast and I still want lunch!

I have always enjoyed lunches here, and once I had the soup of the day, an artichoke something soup, and it was... read more

Stopped by while driving up to Cape Breton. Didn't realize the restaurant was in a strip mall beside grocery and liquor stores. Food and service were both OK. Prices were reasonable. Nothing special and would likely go elsewhere next time.

Busy little spot. Started with the coconut curried mussels and the pot stickers, both were good. The mussels needed alot less butter and more curry. Oh. And we were not told about the daily specials. We only heard about them from another server at a different table. Oops I guess. Then for the mains. There was a 2PC fish &... More

When all else fails, Justamere is where I go! They have the best breakfast in town .. and service is always top notch! Meals usually take quite a bit of time to get to the table but it's always so good that it's worth the wait.

Justamere Cafe is amazing. Excellent food, friendly and attentive staff makes this cafe 'the best.' Everything that we ordered was fresh and tasty, served in a timely manner by an efficient and cheerful waitress. This place deserves top marks in Antigonish.

Had dinner here on three occasions. Met with a warm welcome, quick seating. Wait staff very personable. Entrees were great; had the fish and chips on one date, filet mignon on another, and scallops on the third. All very good. Prices competitive.
