Locals and Oatcakes!

Happened by this little café in "Alexander Graham Bell" country. It was full of locals so that was a good sign. In addition to a selection of fabulous full breakfasts, they have every kind of baked good you could even imagine! We had huge muffins right out of the oven. But the secret that was... read more

We bought to-go sandwiches after visiting the Bell Museum, 1 block away. Staff were very friendly, and bread and ingredients were delicious. Prices were right, too!

Homemade bread comes with your breakfast. I had bacon, eggs and toast. Not a big selection, but very good.

We had breakfast here on two mornings during our stay in the area. Bake goods are out of this world delicious. Nice variety to the menu, all making use of the home made breads and pastries. We found the staff to be very friendly and engaging.
