No seafood available.

We stopped for lunch, expecting to eat some seafood. But no, I think the owner does that on purpose since he doesn't want to compete with the other restaurants in town. Food was o.k. but nothing special.

We decided to stop here for a quick lunch after noticing all the vehicles parked out front. Busy is usually a good sign. I can't say anything about the food because we didn't get any. After being seated by the waitress, we waited around for 15 minutes before we got tired of waiting and left. I suppose it was only... More

The food and decor were great, the wait staff was cheerful, but the food took forever. We were there for a full hour for breakfast and I only ordered a single egg with bacon, 1 piece of toast and my husband ordered french toast. It was 9:30am and we needed to go to the bank which opened at 10:00am. I... More

Stopped in here because our first two choices were both closed for lunch. What a great choice! First of all, the decor was so cheery, all very yellow. Sunflowers, happy faces, giraffes, and of course, yellow cellos! Our waitress was extremely friendly, always calling us "honey" and "dear" in classic Maritime style. (She also had fabulous eye shadow!) For lunch,... More

We were wandering up and down Main St thinking of where we should eat for dinner (Main St is very short!) We decided to eat here, although the menu was not particularly what I wanted (I wanted seafood. The other popular restaurant across the street was serving seafood but the PRICES!) SO we went in and my husband ordered the... More

We had the pleasure of spending part of the afternoon on the deck of the Yellow Cello enjoying the pizza, the service, and the view. This family restaurant offers breakfast through dinner options. We have eaten there every time we visit Baddeck, have had many of the items on the menu...we have never been disappointed. It has a relaxed atmosphere... More

We went in with no expectations, and are generally not difficult, but this was terrible. The spaghetti was overcooked, the sauce was not up to the standard of any decent supermarket jar. My wife's salad was all lettuce with something resembling chicken from a failed experiment. We couldn't bring ourselves to eat even half of it. The staff was friendly,... More

This looks like a great little spot but it was ok at best. Service was fine, but food was disappointing and bland. I would pass and hit Thistledown Pub or High-wheeler Cafe instead.

I remember loving this place years ago but when I visited with my family last year, we were horribly disappointed. The food was certainly nothing special and the service was bad. It took a very long time to get dinner, despite there only being a few people in the restaurant. There are so many other options in Baddeck. Don't bother... More
