Adorable

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.

This restaurant, with attached glassware gallery, is a great stop in Alma! A real departure form the village's traditional fare, we found the food very good, and the menu quite varied. Sort of a new age ;) atmosphere.

They have gluten-free breads and muffins, amazing homemade strawberry lemonade and teas. We were there for breakfast but noticed local beer available. The staff and owner were delightful. We felt we'd made new friends.

Service quite slow as there was a staff shortage and the Rising Tide Music Festival was on. We had breakfast. It was good, nothing spectacular, but the locals and the older biker fellows from Vermont and Florida provided great conversation. No reason to be impatient or in a hurry as we are on vacation. Night before, there was live music... More

It is great to see a restaurant keep up on the trend of what people who like high quality, local, healthy food are looking for. Homemade pasta, coffee selections that are as good as anywhere, fresh-baked muffins (chocolate and cherries with cinnamon) and friendly service, fresh salads, veggies. Congratulations on getting it! Once I found your restaurant, the rest fell... More

Great food, service, and ambiance. There is beautiful artwork by local artists displayed in the restaurant. 5 minute drive to Fundy National Park.

So what if the service is laconic. The food was great. For our first lunch a really good lobster roll for which per my request they held the mayo. And fresh vegetables. You can really go wanting for fresh vegetables on a road trip. We came back for breakfast. All the coffee we could drink -- along with sensible yogurt... More

The food was not the problem. The pasta was fine. The problem was that the doors were closed, so there was no air circulation inside and instead it was pretty stuffy and warm, and there is only one real table outside. The other places to sit are essentially couches and chairs that surround coffee tables. Hardly conducive to eating a... More
