Wonderful family owned restaurant. Love the daily specials and the homemade food. Good pricing and great location in the town of Digby. Would definitely eat here again.

We had an outstanding meal tonight at Mag Pyes Bakery Shoppe and Cafe. They serve a 4 course prix fixe menu for $35.00 (this includes homemade bread and sorbet). This meal is an absolute steal!! The food is outstanding: strong and bold flavors. I would recommend: the mussels, the ceviche, the lobster. The seafood dishes are very strong. They charge... More

My wife and I very much enjoyed an excellent dinner this evening. While enjoying a drive in the area, we decided to try a local restaurant on short notice. We were able to get a quick reservation on short notice; this just so happened to be the only opening for the evening and also the first dinner. They have a... More

I made reservation a week ago based on the great things I read about Mag Pyes. We enjoyed a wonderful meal at the restaurant. They truly want you to enjoy your dining experience and did not rush you out. During our meal, there were 3 other parties served and I believe only one table turned over during the 2 hours... More

We just left dinner at Magpyes, and can't agree more with the review written Last night. We had the prix fixe menu that featured, in,our case, fish chowder, scallop ceviche, seared scallops, and dessert. Each course was prepared simply, with a creative touch that included a touch of hot, sweet or spice, and the portions were perfect. Loved the blueberry... More

One of our favorite parts of staying at Tony and Margaret's Bed and Breakfast (Holdsworth House) was the included breakfast at Mag Pyes. This was not only the best breakfast we've had at a B&B, but the best breakfast we've had in years! My wife had the omelet with scallops both mornings. I had French toast with blueberries one morning... More

What a delectable surprise awaits anyone eating here along the waterfront in Digby, Nova Scotia! Whatever they have on their menu will be delicious and different. Owners Margaret and Tony have the best recipes for success whether it's for breakfast or dinner. Their small, intimate cafe restaurant is delightfully decorated with local artworks (paintings and little hooked rugs) and fresh... More

We expected it to be good due to the reviews but it was even better than expected. All the courses were so wonderful and expertly prepared. The atmosphere was so enjoyable and friendly. Wish we had a place like this in our home town. If in Digby make sure you come here!!

What a deal and great food too! This tiny, charming restaurant is owner operated and you will be sure to meet them during your visit. Our four course meal for a very reasonable price was delicious! It started with seafood spread and fresh baked bread, I then had mussels, lobster ceviche, pork tenderloin main course followed by a delicious sorbet... More

I read about Mag Pyes in lonely planet. We have travelled throughout Nova Scotia and in every city, we always had amazing food. In Digby, we had not had that same experience until Mag Pyes! Not only was the welcoming very warm,(the staff was polite, friendly, personable and very knowledgable about the food they offered), the food was absolutely exquisite;... More
