We stopped her for lunch because of a recommendation from the place we were staying and couldn't be more happy decide to go. I had the grilled veggie panini and it was one of the best sandwiches I ever had. My boyfriend had the chili and repeated several times how great it was. I had a chai tea latte that... More

Happened upon OG last night thinking we would be doing pizza since it was late and pickings looked slim. What a great surprise! The salad was fresh, perfectly dressed and plentiful with a great assortment of greens. I had the handmade pasta with lobster in a tomato sauce. I can't remember having a better meal. The lobster was perfectly done... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed dinner here recently. The pasta was homemade, fresh and delicious. It was so good we had no room left for desert.

We were thrilled to see that they had gluten free bread and desserts on their menu. Unfortunately, the bread they used soaked up the liquid from the veggies and fell apart when picked up. The sandwiches appeared to have butter on the outside of the bread which made the bread even more soggy. Our server left before we finished our... More

Had lobster on bun. Was excellent! Mayo was not mixed in covering lobster taste but was on bun only. Lots of lobster too. My son had the kids panini..peanut butter, banana n honey. He loved it. Ate two of them in the end. I liked it too. The place also had a great laid back feeling. Wasn't left hungry.

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
