Great coffee

This review is mainly just to say that I went here every day while we stayed at a nearby cottage and the reason was - they have superb coffee. Tried the muffins, good, and croissants, nice, but the coffee was the best I had during a two week trip around the Maritimes. I will say that you might have... read more

The latte and ambiance was great! The baked goods were okay not great, as they were tasty but not overly fresh or fluffy. Went back both days while in town for latte (and try a new treat ;). Aucoin's is a better bakery.

I recently stopped in at this café for a bite to eat and a coffee, and was delighted by the ambience. The café has a lovely setting, and both indoor and outdoor seating. Both are attached to the gallery, which sells delightful folk art. The day we were there, both owners/artists were on premise, and both happy to talk about... More

This charming cafe is located right beside the Sunset Gallery - you can browse and then enjoy a snack on their deck - what a great combination - well worth the trip!

The hidden gem of Cape Briton, maybe all of Canada. The best coffee north of New York and east of Montreal and the best pastries anywhere. Sit in the café (a covered outdoor deck next to a pond) and watch the world go by. Meet national politicians, local musicians (who sometimes perform spontaneously) locals and other travelers. Everyone, staff includedf... More

The Frog Pond Cafe is a very small coffee shop, mostly outside, sitting next to a small with, well, frogs. The owner is a delight: friendly, laid-back, helpful, and with a wonderful sense of humor. The coffee is lovely, as are the pastries. What makes especially nice are the other patrons, many being local inhabitants, who add to the warm... More

Cheticamp overall is a wonderful place to visit. The Frog Pond not only has great coffee, but yummy food. While there check out the Folk Art shop. Delightful.

Love this local café. I had the chai latte two mornings in a row along with the spinach turnover. Delicious. Nice little frog pond in the back. Very interesting and unique art and craft store on the side. This is the perfect first stop to any ones day.

Stopped in for a great cup of coffee and a pastry. Enjoyed stopping in at the craft shop and seeing all the talented work of artists in the area. Great place to stop in I highly recommend it.
