Great breakfast!

Our motel across the street did not include breakfast. Lucky for us because this was a bakery-deli where everything was good...and fresh! The egg salad sandwich and egg in ham cup were great, but we saw other things later that looked wonderful.

Stopped in at the tail end of a busy lunch service on a Saturday. I have to say, for our most expensive lunch the whole week, I was expecting better. Food and service are fine, it's the value for $$$ I question. So for a pastrami sandwich, BLT sandwich, a cup of seafood chowder and tap water for $30, I... More

Food is consistently great! Friendly, efficient staff. Home made cakes and the bread is fantastic! Open from 7:00 am until 6:00 pm daily and is located on the main street in Baddeck. This business has been around for a long time and they food is excellent.

Wanted to eat there but we couldn't. Went there Monday evening and it said closed on Mondays. Went there on Tuesday about 6:05 and it said closed at 6. They need longer hours

Small little place located on the main St in Baddeck - great place to grab lunch and an ice cream treat. Baked goods are also very good. Patio seating available.

Unpretentious sandwich-and-coffee place on the main street. Great sandwiches and desserts, excellent espresso. The only restaurant or coffee shop I can remember wanting to buy the T shirt.

I really can't see what all of the fuss is about. #35 for one soup, a very peculiar Greek salad, an egg sandiwich coffee and a water seems high to me. Once the food is taken into consideration, it was really out of line. The soup was pleasant if odd (chicken and mushroom), and served lukewarm. The Greek salad appeared... More

We stopped at the High Wheeler Café and Bakery for breakfast on a recent trip to Baddeck and fell in love with the fresh baked scones. This place is a must if you are travelling to the Cabot Trail. They even do packed lunches to take along on the trip around the trail. The food is fresh and well prepared... More

Stopped in for breakfast one morning and LOVED the baked goods: lemon and raspberry Danishes as big as your head, scones of all flavours (including gluten free), and cookies to die for. Personal favourite: chocolate-covered oat cakes with peanut butter in the middle. Pretty good coffee too ...
