Amazing sandwiches, great people

That is just the best place to have a yummy sandwich. The quality of the meat and the cheeses are incredible I always have the grilled chicken veggie sandwich (amazing). It is not a cheap place to eat, but the prices are very fair for the quality they serve. I fully recommend that unique place

We've been here many times and it's always very good. The sandwiches are perfectly stalked and cut. They also grill the bread of many sandwiches making them extra yummy. The service is fast and friendly. They have a nice selection of imported bubbly juices and drinks. The coffee is also very tasty. And oh...the baked goods....the brownies,the cookies, the date...

Exactly where I would go to relax pre or post excursion - worry free, accessible, filled with good food to burn. These are my favorite places outside of parks - where I can catch up on emails, get information if I need it, and eat something like salmon or fresh baked bread.

The sandwiches here are the stuff dreams are made of. It's a bit pricey, but the servings are big and the ingredients are high quality.

Great place to stop with some superb home baked goods (Cinnamon rolls, tea cakes, bread and oat cakes). Easy to park just off the Hwy 105 and close to the West entry to the Cabot Trail with a pretty view over the Bras d'or Lakes

We stopped by for lunch, having remembered it from years past. Both the ham & the turkey sandwiches, on rye, were packed with meat & veggies. The bread is made on site, so is extremely fresh. Don't leave without a packet of their great, tasty oat cakes.

Absolutely delicious! We stopped by, on a whim, and what a great idea that was. I had the grilled veggie and chicken sandwich. Easily the best sandwich I've ever had. Homemade multigrain bread, grilled veggies, chicken breast with mayo and sundried tomato dressing. Soooo wonderful. After several days eating white bread this was a gift from above. My fiancé had...

I particularly like the curried tuna wrap. For around $10.00 it is a tasty treat. The staff are all friendly and the location is convenient if you are driving along HWY 105 between Baddeck and Whycocomagh. Great for a quick lunch.

#cruzn2015 - The Gang and I stopped in on the way to NFLD. We had the club, the Cesar wrap, the chicken breast and grilled vegetables sandwich and the Greek salad. Everything was very good. Reasonably priced and friendly staff. We will stop in again. The only negative think we could possibly say is they didn't have ice cream (according... More

We stopped for a lunch time snack. There was a wide choice of made-to-order sandwiches, in a deli that looked deceptively small from the outside but had ample comfortable seating and a relaxed atmosphere within. I ordered their special which was fine, my wife ordered a vegetable and chicken sandwich which came without chicken. The error was quickly solved and... More
