Found out that there's a difference b/w Fresh and Live lobster. You want Fresh. As in just came in last night. Had the special of the day Lobster Pasta. A bit pricey but delicious. Great choice of beer.

Worth the effort to try their made daily fresh pasta dishes including the Puttanesca. Breakfast was also very good. Everything is very affordable.

This was not what we expected when we went in. From the name we thought it would be full of seafood but rather the menu had homemade pastas and signature sauce choices on it. It had great homemade tomato soup and a super lobster sandwich. The owner was our server and she couldn't have been nicer. There were several locals... More

Alma is a small town in the Bay of Fundy region. We liked the name of this restaurant so we stopped for lunch. Our choices were yummy, chilli and a ploughman's lunch were more than ample for two to share. Staff were pleasant, place cheerful with local crafts available for sale.

Wow, what a great surprise to find a gem like this in a small harbor town! Open early for breakfast, charming decor, very friendly owner and the food was just outstanding. The locally sourced yogurt was amazing, and fresh fruit and baked goods were just as delicious. There is also an outside patio where you can listen to birds singing... More

Was greeted by the owner so kindly at 7am that we went back for supper and he was still there! Excellent family business. Our homemade pasta was great; I had the pesto, yum!

I loved this place- super cute decor and shop upstairs. Delicious and fresh breakfast- not greasy at all. Lovely town. You must come here if you visit the Bay of Fundy!

You can order anything and not be disappointed. I got the Soup & Sandwich and they let me choose the Chili as my soup...heaven. The local brews are well worth it. They have vegan options for meals and dessert. The restaurant is quiet and a 5 min walk from the boat dock in Alma.
