This seasonal restaurant is a very nice restaurant right on the side of the Trans Canada Highway which makes for easy access. They serve a terrific burger, sandwiches, baked goods, and a terrific cup of coffee. Their friendly servers are efficient, speedy, and helpful which really justifies their reasonable prices.

Had read the reviews and was hoping for/looking forward to a nice lunch of chowder on our way back to Halifax. Immediately we were taken aback by the unfriendly gal at the counter and felt like we were unwelcome, to the point of almost leaving. The chowder was ok, but the biscuits that accompanied our meal were cold and heavy.... More

Loved the coffee, the food, the service and the couches! We came here for lunch once while we were in the area and were hoping to return but ran out of time. Loved the soup, sandwich and coffee though and wish I would have had some room left for the dessert. We sat by the fire with our coffees for... More

The three of us had lunch at this deli several miles south of Baddeck. Attractive, interesting, slightly-quirky place. Great, big sandwiches and baked goods, and decent prices. BTW, the name is slang for someone from the province of New Brunswick. It does *not* refer to some sort of psychopathic obsession with small fish :-).

We spent three nights in the Baddeck area and unashamedly ate two breakfasts at The Herring Choker (the third we had leftovers from dinner). The atmosphere is inviting, the staff gracious and welcoming, and the food is excellent. Everything is fresh and flavorful and very reasonably priced. Make sure, if you go, to check out the baked goods. The pastry... More

Service is very personal and staff remember your favourites. Great lunches, soups, and salads. They also make sugar free oatcakes for people watching their blood sugar. We try to stop in whenever we are in Cape Breton.

First of all, for those looking for the Herring Choker Deli, this restaurant is actually 13 km west of Baddeck, in Nyanza. That said, the sandwiches were very good and the staff was very friendly. We shared a club sandwich and a grilled chicken sandwich. Both were toasted on their Panini press, which was great. The club was really good,... More
