Um Yes Please!

What a tasty Lobster Sandwich! The Lobster was done almost bare or maybe it was bare no mayo. It doesn't matter it was out of this world! And the homemade mushroom soup was fantastic. Very friendly staff.

Amazing meal. We went for dinner. I had the carrot and dill soup to start. The waitress generously substituted the soup for the salad that was suppose to come with my meal. I had the garlic and olive oil pasta with some extra spice and it was delicious. My mom had the creamy garlic Alfredo and it was so so... More

We had breakfast and lunch at Octopus' Garden and thoroughly enjoyed both. Menu changes daily (I believe) and quite good - staff is friendly. Recommend this for sure.

Friendly and enthusiastic staff. Music on some nights. Lobster sandwich one of the best. Seafood linguine was a little salty but savoury. The best are the fresh croissants in the morning. Great place and while in Alma for 3 nights, we are here 3 times.

1/4 pound fresh lobster on homemade grilled panini, light on the mayo = delicious (5/5) . The tomato herbed soup was also excellent (5/5). The lobster + soup cost $18 but worth it. The side salad looked good as did the grilled cheese (on the same super-delicious panini). The Americano was acceptable (3.5/5) - I have high standards and particular... More

Stopped in for supper after a long day of hiking in Fundy Park. Folks finishing up their meal on the front veranda when we arrived highly recommended the homemade pasta dishes. All the pasta dishes (about 12 different) are $18 and while I was very tempted my companion and I both settled on a bowl of homemade soup and a... More

We were here in July and I had to return to have another lobster roll. This is my new favorite restaurant. The soup was delicious, the lobster roll amazing and the Mint Lime Iced Tea very refreshing and to top it off the "best damn cookie" I ever had was scrumptious. Wish I lived closer so that I could visit... More

This small artsy café had an interesting selection of freshly made food. We thoroughly enjoyed the grilled cheese and wonderful tomato soup. Homemade desserts looked good. Can sit inside and enjoy the artisans crafts for sale or outside on the deck. Loved the creative apron curtain covering the bathroom window. Very pleased with just happening upon this little treasure for... More
