This is a very pleasant, airy restaurant. I was somewhat worried when we arrived for dinner, because the entire dinner menu is only pasta; at $18 a plate. I'm not a huge fan of pasta. But it turns out the lunch menu was available as well, so I ordered the ploughman's lunch. When I think ploughmans, I think cheese. Several... More

Great place in Alma to stop if you want a meal prepared with fresh ingredients and made with heart. We sat in for lunch one day and got the veggie sandwich with pesto. It was fresh, simple and tasty. On the way out we grabbed some delicious GF cookies and squares which did not last long. They also have occasional... More

This restaurant is located in the small town of Alma, right outside Fundy National Park. They offer a choice of interesting sandwiches and wonderful homemade pasta sauces. There is a gluten-free pasta option. Delicious homemade bread. Great service.

We pulled into Alma late, expecting to go to the pizza place, but found this! The food was really, really good. We were too late for the homemade pasta, but had a great panini and lobster sandwich. You could tell the owner/chef really wanted you to be happy with the food you received. The server was personable and helpful, and... More

Stopped here for dinner with the family and ordered the pasta. I cannot say enough how delicious this meal was. The alfredo was creamy & delicious, my daughter ordered the classic marinara-awesome, my hubby ordered the lobster pasta which was just incredible. Homemade fresh pasta, beautiful mesclun salad served family style, and you must try the strawberry lemonade! Had lemon... More

Only had a chance to look at the menu and talk briefly with the waitress/manager. She was very friendly, the place had a nice a patio and the menu looked simple, but appetizing with some unique takes on many favourites. Make sure to ask what the day's special is. We missed out on lobster sandwiches. Will definitely try next time... More

We came in the first night on recommendation from someone in local and had such a great meal we came back for breakfast, and once more for another dinner. The pasta's were handmade and sauces excellent. We also had lemon squares and great Latte for desserts. Breakfast the next day was awesome with real local bacon and house-made French toast.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local woman working at Fundy National Park and we were wonderfully surprised by the food, staff, and décor (they sell local artwork which is beautifully displayed throughout the restaurant). The harvest potato soup was delicious as were the eggs, toast, fruit cup, and Belgium waffle.

The pastas are tasty and well prepared. The tomato and red pepper soup also really wonderful. Staff delightful and gracious. Great little find. Home baked chocolate chip cookies fresh and easily consumed. Presentation nice but could be improved. Olive oil and some good balsamic vinegar for the bread to accompanied salad and bowls rather than plates for the pasta would... More

Had breakfast there and it delicious! We ordered the egg/bacon panini and a regular bacon and egg breakfast. They got their bacon and eggs from local Butcher shop and they were delicious. We are from Toronto and all we get to eat are processed packaged bacon... so real bacon are something awesome to us. We also tried their chocolate chip... More
