Delightful!

Excellent service, selection, and decor. A very happy find for us! We enjoyed the soup of the day and a local (ish) brew as well as a great chat with the manager.

We were leaving early in the morning and this cafe was the only place that opened early. We were moving at pace. However, when it came to service, it was at their pace; staff doing their morning chores with seemingly little interest in customers wanting to be served. We did get breakfast and it was fine, as was the coffee.

My husband and I randomly stopped here during our mini-moon in Canada. Their homemade pasta was to die for and the staff were so lovely and incredibly welcoming. It was such a nice and unexpected pleasure!

This restaurant was near the place we stayed and we ate our breakfast here each morning. Food was good and so was the service. We really enjoyed the art work from the locals on display here. We also purchased some of their desserts to share with our friends and they were also good.

After a week on the road with a lot of car camping and cold cereal breakfasts, I was looking forward to a hot meal on the day I was leaving Fundy Nat'l Park. An Octopus' Garden Cafe did not disappoint me. I had a simple egg breakfast, which was prepared perfectly and served piping hot.

It is surprising to find in such a small town a restaurant with food of such high calibre. It offers fine dining - and fine wine - in a very casual space.

I was thinking about food while taking the scenic drive along the Bay of Fundy when I happened across this cafe. I stopped in and got a great Turtle Mocha, sandwich, and dessert!! While it's not a five diamond restaurant with silver and take linens, it is a friendly place with good food... And a family owned place, not a... More

It may not be seafood for lunch, but if you're looking for something healthier than fried food, this is your place. Had hoped to try their pasta, but it's only available for dinner. That said, the soups and sandwiches offered are tasty and delicious. Lots of places in town closed for the season.
