Unique little Cafe and Bike shop

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... read more

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.

It was a great day. the bikes were super comfortable. the trails were quite wide and bike able. A few bridges, great iews and little ups... More

Cafe and bike shop housed in old train station. What a great idea! Such a neat old building and right next to the popular bike trail. Good stop for a coffee and perhaps a baked goodie however lunch was very disappointing. We took friends along and frankly, the outing having been my suggestion, I was personally embarassed by the food... More
