Great story behind this one

A return visit was just as nice as the first visit last year. You can't miss it on the main street, as yellow as it advertises to be! Very friendly staff and an enjoyable menu. A good variety of tastey items with a modern fling. Well done! When you visit don't forget to get the story!

We went here for breakfast, the hostess was unfriendly and didn't say good morning or acknowledge us just took us to our table. Then the server came and again didn't greet us just pen and paper in hand said what do we want. By now I have my dander up. The food was fine ( it was breakfast ) as... More

We had a nice meal on the patio. Both the pizza and salad were very good. There were lots of other options, It appears to be frequented by the locals, too. Always a good sign! I'd return next time I'm in Baddeck.

Great name for a restaurant, but average food and service. Our server was pleasant enough, but the service was slow. Food was adequate but nothing special.

We had an order of meat chili and an order of veggie chili. They were tasty but the portions were small both for supper and for the price. Service was good.

Delicious, fresh and reasonably priced food. The servers are well trained and cheerful. The owner/manager has a good rapport with his staff.

Stopped here for a late lunch. Service was great and so was the food! The donair was something a little different and was fantastic! Decent view of the harbour and terrific spot for people watching!

The atmosphere was actually alright, just near the harbour...but the food was disappointing. I had pasta, and my fiancee had donair. She didn't like it, but admitted that she may just not like donair that much. My pasta was so overcooked and the sauce wasn't anything special. Hopefully this was circumstantial though since it was a cute place.

Service is good. Pizza is a fine choice. Skip the quesadillas. Indoor or outdoor seating. Hope you like yellow.

First all, this place is a restaurant, not just coffee&tea. Tripadvisor should re-classified it. Wife had the beef and barley soup and a club sandwich. I had the donair. All are good. But the donair is a Nova Scotia specialty. It is quite unique and very delicious!
