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.

Great food and service

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.

Justamere was recommended and it entirely lived up to the praise. I had Eggs Benedict but with a substitution of fish cakes for the English muffins which made it about the best breakfast I've ever had in my life. Brilliant hollandaise sauce too. Friendly service and a nice atmosphere.

This is one of my favorite establishments in Antigonish. The all day breakfast is my absolute favorite. Service is great and the atmosphere is very welcoming. If you haven't dined here I highly recommend you do.

Nice Cafe/bistro! The chowder was yummy and fish cakes handmade. The dishes my friends had looked awesome as well. Pleasant waitress. Not very busy for supper but then it was a Wednesday.

My husband and I eat out for breakfast usually every Sunday morning and we usually go to the Justamere. We are always greeted as we enter the door and given our coffee in a very timely fashion. Breakfasts are very good and are always hot; the coffee is plentiful. We like to take our granddaughters who are under the age... More

What a great surprise. This restaurant is unassuming but boy does it deliver. On our first day in the area, my wife and I had both breakfast and dinner here. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly. On our way home we passed through Antigonish and stopped at Justamere for lunch. Every table but one was occupied... More

Antigonish has always been a point in our travels where we would stop for a meal. When the Dragonfly closed we were left without an interesting breakfast and lunch spot. On a weekend trip to Halifax last weekend we took the advice of TA and had breakfast at the number one rated restaurant in Antigonish. All I can say is... More

We have had so-so meals in Antigonish in the past. Justamere was a pleasant surprise in that they don't serve a lot of the traditional fried foods you find in Nova Scotia restaurants. We like out scallops rare, meaning not cooked to death, and that's the way they came. The chefs are creative, unlike many others in the province and... More
