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.

Super lunch here......

Stopped here on my way through Antigonish for lunch. I was amazed at how good the food was. This will for sure be a stopping place for me in the future when traveling through that way. I highly recommend it.

I've been to the Justamere many times while living in Antigonish. The food is very good, the service is always friendly and the atmosphere fun. Recently, I attended a banquet catered by Justamere where they went above and beyond our expectations. The meal was turkey dinner, which was one of the best turkey dinners I ever had, even better than... More

My group had 100+ guests in the Claymore's banquet room. The Justamere had the tables all set beautifully, served a beautiful salad with homemade dressing, and warm rolls to start, followed by an absolutely fantastic turkey dinner and delicious cheesecake! Some of the comments from guests included "better than Thanksgiving at home", "food came to us so fast, nice and... More

Listen you guys I gotta tell you a great secret - there's a restaurant with a fabulous meeting room we been having breakfast meetings in Justamere Café for over five years. Where else can you go at 7 o'clock in the morning and get professional, attentive service and a fabulous breakfast menu. It's just amazing; has never disappointed us. We're... More

This lovely little gem is hidden inside a hotel. Have always enjoyed my meal here. It's a little pricey though. The wait staff are friendly they could be more attentive of their tables.

My friends and I make it a point to get to the Justamere as frequently as we can! The only thing better than the food and drink is the restaurant's newest server Lily - what a doll! Prompt, so friendly, and can make the meanest, tastiest Caesar you ever did have (best appetizer on the menu). We are continuously satisfied... More

By far some of the best food in Antigonish with the best atmosphere. Definitely worth ordering the quesadilla, look for the cute server Lily ;)

What a nice surprise -- staying at the Claymore and not expecting the in-house restaurant to be all that interesting but we had two great meals there. Shellfish linguine and haddock amandine. Very tasty, good presentation and the right amount of food. Very pleasant service. Spoke to some local residents who said it was consistently good and a very popular... More

My friend and I had the mussels as an appie and the braised scallops for an entrée. The mussels had just the right bite in the flavor. The scallops presentation was incredible but surpassed by the taste! I would go back over and over just for this dish! Also of note was the great staff. They were all friendly and... More
