On our way to Alexander graham bell museum read the reviews and decided to stop. Had a delicious lunch and bought some oatmeal bread and oatcakes. Would recommend.

We come here often because it is everyone in our extended family's favorite lunch. Everything is high quality: the produce, the meats & cheeses, and the fresh bread. Whether it's the lobster on white bread (best in the region which is saying something!), the veggie special on multigrain, the Herring Choker Club (also on multigrain which is my absolute favorite)...

Great grilled sandwiches and gluten free chocolate cake. The prices were a bit high but we were on vacation so didn't mind too much.

We found this place via Trip Advisor. Glad we did. Great salads and sandwiches. Good prices. Lots of choices. Nice interior. Would definitely recommend this place. It's not in town but right on the highway south by 5 miles.

We had planned to stop right in Baddeck for lunch on our way back to Halifax from the Cabot Trail, but had read great reviews so came to the Herring Choker Deli.

The Herring Choker is right on the main highway (the 105) and so is very convenient for a stop. This deli and Cafe serves great sandwiches and wraps that are imaginative and delicious. Be prepared to pay a bit for this - typical large sandwich on home made bread will run about $9.95 and with NS and Federal tax the... More

We stopped three separate times to eat the lobster sandwich here. Great pastry, coffee too. Wi- fi and newspapers, an outdoor deck looking at the water across the street. Musician entertaining once too. Find it!
