Stop here if you are in the area - try the hot lobster sandwich

Driving in the Dayton/Yarmouth area of N.S., there are family owned restaurants dotting the highway and not too many chain restaurants. We weren't sure where to eat dinner, but we decided to stop here because there were a lot of cars in the parking lot (that meant that it must be good). The... read more

This restaurant has had a good reputation for many years, but I'm not sure why. It seems to be the place that all of the seniors frequent, which is okay.

Took a group of 36 to Jo-Anne's last week and everyone said the food they received was delicious and all chose off the menu. Can't get any better than that. Atmosphere was great, service was great, restaurant was nice and cozy. Great job Jo-Anne!

By pass all those chain restaurants, step in to this local eatery, and you will enjoy a bit of local cooking and the Acadian culture! The atmosphere is plain and simple , formica booths lined up , a bit old and shabby but the food wowed us! Served to us by the friendly personable owner who shared stories with us... More

Not too fancy but super delish family foods that will please everyone. I recommend their Rappiere pie and try their bread pudding, omg it is to die for, especially the blueberry!
