This is an old fashioned family restaurant. If you like homemade food and pleasant conversation, then this is the place for you. We really enjoyed ourselves here and the owners and regular patrons were enjoyable and made it a pleasant visit. If you are in Digby you must stop in here.

What a treat to find such a fantastic resturant only 1/2 hour away from home. Excellent value for a 3 course meal, which also included an asume bouche with homemade pate and breads and a wonderful sorbet prior to the main course. The presentation of the food was excellent and the taste even better. It is a very casual and... More

Our B&B recommended this restaurant and booked us a table. It is a small venue and only holds maybe 20 diners and has maybe 2 seatings nightly. We were met at the door and seated immediately. The menu was "local" - what we wanted....and the meal was served in pleasant courses. All four of us were impressed with the quality... More

Our dinner at Mag Pyes was the highlight of our stay in Digby. The 3-course menu was nothing short of scrumptious, and at a $35.00 price--a real bargain. Dinner started with a plate of pate, beet infused humus, crostini and home-made bread....a delicious starter. The scallop ceviche and chowder were outstanding first courses. Of course we were in Digby so... More

There are people who cook and present food as an business and then there are people who simply love what they are doing. The couple at Mag Pyes seem to simply love what they are doing and it shows through the quality of their food and service. Dining in their small, cozy cafe is like having the meal of your... More

This is a terrific, small restaurant in Digby, Nova Scotia. There is nothing else like it in the area. Most restaurants in Digby and surrounds serve pretty basic seafood. Mag Pye serves a 4 course, prix fixe meal that is beautifully presented and delicious. An amuse-bouche was served, then first course, which was mussels, in a delectable broth. I opted... More

Our evening meal in this charming little cafe was quite a change from the casual cafes we'd enjoyed in Digby. The three course dinner was actually five presentations. First came the amuse- bouche, then soup, a sorbet to refresh the palate, then the main presentation, pole-caught fresh halibut, then dessert. Choices for each of the three main courses or varied....

Everything was prepared fresh and each course was truly a culinary delight! The desserts are homeade and a great end to the delicious meal. Would definitely return to Mag Pyes, and highly recommend if you... More

Really great little place for breakfast. Loved the homely decor! Owners were friendly and accommodating (happily made a child-size portion of something for my son). Fabulous pancakes!

We went to Mag Pyes in Digby for dinner and had an incredible meal. Fixed price menu with each course having a few choices. This is how a restaurant should be. Each choice was incredible, we about tried them all between the four of us. Salads extremely tasty, and a tomato basil soup that was the best I have ever... More
