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.

I've only been here once but had to write about it. Like most places in Antigonish, it's a relaxed place and everyone is friendly. They have eggs benedict, which is something I am way too lazy to make at home and I like eating for lunch. They people next to me had fish and chips, which looked very good (and... More

I leased an apartment in the Claymore Inn which the Justamere Cafe is attached to, so I went here a couple times for breakfast and just recently dinner with my boyfriend. All three times I was very impressed. For dinner I ordered the house red wine and the Seafood Linguine. Linguine was delicious and they did not spare on the... More

Went there for breakfast when we stayed at the hotel for work. I ordered the pancakes... Three good sized ones that were pretty thick. Part of me wants to say they weren't totally cooked all the way through as they seemed a bit doughy. However the other part of me says they were tasty. Reasonable price I guess. It seems... More

My husband and I eat there regularly. The food is always great and the nightly dinner specials are always creative and very tasty! This week he had the Braised Scallops (the biggest scallops that I ever saw!) and I had the Chicken Supreme - one of my favorites, always delicious. We are not dessert eaters, however the Deep Fried Ice-cream... More

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
