Breakfast

Good coffee and scrumptious French toast. Sunny room and welcoming service. Got me ready for a day of needle felting and great music at Celtic Colours.

We ate lunch here in July 2014. There are some nice outside tables, but we decided to eat inside. Cannot complaint for great service and great pizza for a great price! The decor could use some sprucing-up to create a better atmosphere.

Great service. I use to work in the area and have had lots of meals at this location which I have always enjoyed. The service is very good and the staff are very friendly . This restaurant is walking distance to downtown Baddeck and especially the wharf area. Prices are reasonable but the parking can get a bit crowed at... More

I always eat at the Yellow Cello when I am in Baddeck. First of all, I love the food. There is a wide variety of items available on the menu and the meals are quite big and filling. Second of all, I like the service. Always friendly and accommodating. I like that most times when I am there, there is... More

Two of us had an excellent light lunch. Restaurant was going to close for the season in a few days, so not all the menu items were available. We had soup and a club sandwich. Both were very good, and the bread is made in house, which is a plus. Enjoyed our meal and surroundings, as we sat in the... More

After reading thru some of these reviews, I have to guess we were just lucky. But we had a very good pizza & salad and very good server. Was served promptly and friendly. Enjoyed sitting outside with a partial view of the lake and docks.

We ate here one and both mornings when staying upstairs at the Greenhighlander. The food was substantial and reasonably priced. The service was good and we enjoyed our meals

We had not eaten at the Yellow Cello for some years and only had time to stop in for breakfast on this trip. The restaurant was busy and in the light of this service was fast efficient and polite rather than friendly. The food was plentiful and wholesome but not exceptional and the cost was reasonable. We were a little... More

Great pizza, homemade soup and the famous "dome dog", made with a gluten free Nova Scotian foot-long dog, are on offer at this Baddeck landmark. The atmosphere is casual and cheery, the service is great and they use local ingredients in the soup when possible. It's a great spot; check it out!

I ate here three times, over a weeklong trip to Cape Breton, and would heartily recommend the Yellow Cello. Whilst the decoration is fairly minimal, the food itself was top quality, and delivered very quickly and with great, relaxed humour. On different occasions I had the seafood chowder, artichoke dip, and monster hot dog - all great, and with a... More
