Best cinnamon bun ever- full of brown sugar-yum! Stopped for a mid-morning coffee and snack and were treated to deliciousness. My partner had a fresh, blueberry scone-the word delivered on it was "heaven". Eyed up the peanutbutter-filled,chocolate dipped shortbread cookies and had to say "no"- how stupid of us, what were we thinking 😩 leaving those babies behind! Get there... More

While walking through Baddeck, my wife was looking for a place to get something to quench both her hunger and thirst. We came upon this place, and were not disappointed (well, okay, just a little, as I didn't get the shortbread cookies that looked amazing). The cinnamon bun that she got, was excellent, although everything looked great - and the... More

Picked up sandwiches for a picnic on the Cabot Trail. They were excellent especially with the homemade bread they recommended. The desserts were terrific. Very friendly staff. Wish they had been open for dinner!

Awesome "spider cookies", a no-bake chocolate coconut macaroon. They are like fudge with coconut. Good veggie wrap.

For that friendly at home part of the family feeling, you have to go to the Highwheeler cafe. Their food is always fresh, and delicious. They have a wide variety of dishes to choose from and something for everyone, whether vegetarian or not, also gluten free choices. It's a family owned and operated Bakery/ cafe, and they truly make you... More

This was a pleasant surprise to find this place. We had eaten at another restaurant in the area for supper the night before, but when we found this for lunch we were very pleased. Most of the food is made right there and it has a bakery in the restaurant area as well. The soup was homemade and delicious, as... More

Had a BLT sandwich here recently -- it was fresh, fast, and delicious. Especially liked that the café had fresh brewed iced tea. They had a variety of baked goods and ice cream. I picked up some peanut butter cookies that were just ok...would definitely be willing to try some of the other goodies next time though.

I had a fantastic sub sandwich and a bowl of chowder. What a lunch that was. Fresh cold cuts and bread. It was a little pricy but worth it.
