Rent a bike

We rented bikes for 5 hours for 18$ per bike. They didn't charge us for overpassing the 4 hours. Friendly service. We biked 2 hours from the bike and bean to the trellis cafe along the rails to trail. It's mostly in the woods with some nice seaview. We came back on the highway but ultimately i... read more

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...

This is a good place to stop either going to Peggy's Cove or coming back and the food is Homey and wholesome. There is not a lot of seating but the staff are quick and good value for the money.

Stopped on way to Peggie's Cove with guests. Limited tables and seating. Tried the Peanut soup which was excellent and the Brie sandwich. The service was friendly and efficient. They even had unsweetened home made Tea which I haven't had since leaving the USA south. It isn't fine dinning but is a good cafe.

What a great little place, muffins to die for! We used this cafe a few times on our two week stay in Nova Scotia, such a welcome oasis on the dusty trail to rest after a long cycle or even a short drive!! Hired bikes from here too, great service. Would highly recommend.

This is the trifecta for my family. Good coffee, bike rentals and free internet. This spot sits along the rails to trails trail way. Lovely way to spend a part of your day!

I admired the French Village train station building for years and was delighted to discover that a creative group of people converted one half into a really cool coffee shop with great and fresh light meals, and in the other a bike shop (they RENT OUT BIKES) - so appropriate, for the St. Margaret's Bay section of the Rails to...

Grab a coffee, drink or sandwich before/after your ride. Located on the St. Margaret's Bay rails-to-trail. The shop also offers a small bike shop with a few items. The espresso is very good. Great spot to start your ride.

We we're cycling along the trail to Halifax today and saw this little cafe. Fairly busy place. Service was great and friendly. The paninis we're quite tasty too! Prices were reasonable. I would stop by again.
