Local Baddeck Eatery will not dissappoint- Eat in-or Take Out- Great Food Choice

Great food, convenient location and friendly service. The Village of Baddeck has a gem of a bakery/deli and coffee cafe right in the center on Chebucto St. Owners Kathy and Mel work hard to greet and meet all customers and work with their staff to provide friendly customer service.

We ordered bacon and eggs. I have a gluten allergy so I requested gluten free bread. My order was up about 5-7 minutes before my husband's (we could see it sitting "on deck") but the server just left it there to get cold. Once we received the food, it was average (though the gluten free bread wasn't too great). Ketchup... More

Located in the heart of Baddeck, this is a cute little cafe that serves great coffee and tasty sandwiches. We had a great lunch, and were grateful for their wifi.

We ordered the Reuben and Highwheeler special sandwich with stuffing, chicken & cranberry sauce. It tasted ok, but the chicken in both sandwiches was highly processed meat that you would find in a fast food restaurant like Tim Hortons. Not worth the $$

I hoped to grab a quick breakfast to go for our car ride but ended up waiting 30 minutes. There was too many people lined up, I'm guessing it's one better places in town but seemed ordinary to me.

The three of us had lunch at the High Wheeler. Service was very good. The sandwiches were very tasty. My wife and I split the High Wheeler Sandwich. It's sort of like Thanksgiving Dinner on a bun. Chicken, cranberries, and stuffing! We also split a bowl of sweet potato and lentil soup, which was delicious. Highly recommended.

This is a good stop! We were on the 'chowder' trail and their chowder was pretty good (it didn't beat our number 1 though) The bumble berry crisp is wonderful and then the oat cakes are a must have!

This is a combo deli-bakery. Tuna wrap, "high wheeler sandwich" were both above average. Two drinks. Cookies to die for. $40C which given what we had was fair. Order at counter and sit inside or outside. We waited 15-20 minutes for food but they were slammed when we arrived since they are close to the Bell Museum. Parking is tricky... More

We go here every year for breakfast when we visit Baddeck. Really great breakfast sandwiches and baked goods...on this occasion, eggs and bacon on a bagel, and gingerbread cookies. We'll be back next time through town.
