Check this out! Fantastic home cooked food!!!

This little cafe/bakery has been operating for years and they've got it down!! Located on the highway it's easy to miss if you're not sure of the location. The food is always excellent and the staff are always friendly. Fabulous home made soups, sandwiches and cakes!

I had a really delicious smoked salmon sandwich here with a Greek salad on the side. My only complaint is that the bill came to $16 or something ridiculous like that. And I just got a half sandwich!

I used to stop here when i was a little girl on the way to Sydney. I was happy to be the in area and had a chance to stop recently. I bought oatcakes, an ice coffee and a curried tuna sandwich. It is not cheap as it was almost $20 but it was very tasty. I liked it so... More

Reviews looked great wanted to stop and stock up on meats, cheese and bread so we could make sandwiches for our trail treks. Husband was concerned in halifax that we might not get what we wanted so we actually stocked up in halifax. Decided to stop, have lunch, buy bread and sweets. Lunch menu very limited, mainly cold cut sandwiches.... More

We ordered 2 1/2 smoked meat sandwiches with small couscous salad, one lobster sandwich, a diet pepsi, san peligrino and a coffee = $45. not impressed. Plus the food was..well? Boring. No pizazz. The couscous was tasteless. Not enough mustard on sandwich though I requested extra. Great homemade bread, good meat, fresh lobster and yet...something was missing. It looks like... More

I used to go here years ago and decided to stop by. We ordered sandwiches. They were fine; nice hearty homemade bread, real Montreal smoked meat, lobster, etc. However they weren't awesome. I asked for extra mustard and didn't really feel like I got it. The couscous salad was bland. It was frankly kind of boring. The bill for three... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Breton. Highly recommended for the service and delicious baked goods. We had a few sandwiches and left full, what a tasty meal and such beautiful desserts, especially the oat cakes. The girl we spoke to was accommodating and gave us some good travel advice about the area.

When my daughter lived in Cape Breton, she introduced me to the awesome oat cakes that you bake. Unfortunately she has relocated to my area ,(ha ha !!) and unless she returns to visit her friends and family I am unable to get any! I hide them in my freezer and am very selective who I share them with. She... More

While I was in the area I had muffins from the Herring Choker a few times. (blueberry, apple, oatmeal) All of them were delicious. I also has both the white and whole wheat bread. I am still craving it now that I am home. They were delicious, a little chewy and a lot yummy

I stopped here after driving down from Cape North. Lovely little deli with a surprizingly broad selection. This is a small shop with just a few tables but it seemed most folks took their sandwiches to go. I ate mine inside as it was a bit windy but there are also a few tables outside. There were only three workers... More
