Coffee lovers and sweets' paradise

Fantastic colorful and artistic spot to enjoy amazing coffees, soups, sandwiches and desserts. Local Art colors the walls and it's a great spot to go after hiking.

We were on a driving tour but after visiting here, we wished we were cycling. On a beautiful Sunday in August, we caught them within about 5 minutes of closing - kinda surprised given the number of cyclists and people we had seen all along the beaches that day. They probably missed out on some business but also were anxious... More

Sweet local place with the most imaginative slogans. Great bike shop, excellent Java and right at the trailhead. For not-those-kind-of-bikers.

Coffee was fantastic. Panini sandwiches filling and the home made muffins were excellent. Inside is very eclectic and nice area outside as well. Service was excellent

We love this place so much we went three times while we were there for breakfast, and to enjoy a wonderful bike ride on the trail. The service was good in both the restaurant and the bike shop. Great choice.

Great spot to hire a bike on the Rails to Trails route - good quality bike and helmet. Good shop with cycling gear as well. Also a great spot to have a coffee and baking after your cycle ride!

My husband and I biked the rails to trail starting from this spot. It was one of the most endearing times of our Nova Scotia trip. Super charming, friendly and obliviously a great hangout as a reprieve to biking a distance. We had a late lunch and had Panini's . Nicely priced as well as delicious. The scones were excellent...
