We often go here for lunch on the weekend and it is very good. Servers are all very friendly and usually very attentive. The southwest chorizo burger is amazing as is the Caesar salad. The only problem with this place is that no matter if they are busy or if you are one of three tables in the place the... More

Being a local in Antigonish, Justamere is one of my favorite restaurants. A few of my choice dishes would be, for breakfast: Eggs Benny, lunch: Quesadillas with side Caesar or regular fries OR Chicken cordon bleu sandwich with fries (this will make you love mushrooms if you hate them-give it a try!), supper: Chicken & mushroom alfredo. As many reviews... More

The Justamere has been my secret hangover weapon for years now, the "build-a-breakfast" let's me get exactly what I'm craving! Huge portions, excellent service, I highly recommend this place hungover or not. You can't beat the Justamere!

I arrived at 2 pm and ordered the eggs benedict, they arrived hot and cooked to perfection, yolks just the way I asked for them. The service was very good. The menu was interesting and if I had a chance to go for a meal again I would.

My spouse and I recently had lunch at the Justamere Cafe and Bistro - although we are from Antigonish we often forget that this gem is hidden in the mall/sobeys parking lot! We hadn't been there is a while, but we were thoroughly impressed! The service was great, the food was delicious (I had a quesadilla which was without hassle... More

The restaurant is in one of the local hotels. The quality and quantity of the food was good. Prices a little above average. Good family restaurant. Clean and inviting.

I attended a conference for continuing pharmacy education at the Claymore Inn in Antigonish. One can usually expect the food to be lousy or sub-par at best during these types of events, where a large group of people are being served. The food was most definitely a hit. They provided us with 2 protein choices which were melt in your... More

Crowdis Bridge is a Cape Breton based Folk, Bluegrass and Country Blues band. We were recently invited to play a dinner show at the Justamere Café and Bistro. As you can appreciate, we spend a lot of time on the road, travelling mostly around the Maritimes, frequently playing in all sorts of pubs, cafes and restaurants. When on the road,... More

Hi Julie! Thank you for taking the time to review the Justamere Cafe & Bistro. I want to apologize for not having yogurt available the day you were dining with us. In fact, it was an oversight on the part of the waitress, as we did have yogurt in stock but the packaging had changed and she did not recognize... More
