This is the kind of place that TripAdvisor helps provide deserved attention. It is quirky, it is not super fancy, and the French influence is strong. We've had some issues with how people in France deal with Americans. But NOT here. Very friendly, eager to answer questions. Then there are the baked goods. Really good, really fresh. Coffee and other... More

Delicious home-baked goods (try the pastries, they melt in the mouth) and organic coffees served by friendly staff beside a lovely little pond. This delightful cafe shares space with the studio and shop of one of the world's most talented folk-artists, stop in and visit with him. You won't want to leave this little haven which is located on the... More

The baked goods by Myron Syms are to die for. The setting is relaxed country; environmentally gifted with the odd musician dropping in to play for the clients. Claudia makes a fantastic beverage of which she has many to choose from and the atmosphere is always conducive for conversation.

My yearly trips to Cheticamp, on the west coast of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia,are not complete without a daily stop at the Frog Pond Cafe. The savory and sweet pastries baked by Myron Syms are as integral to the place as the atmosphere and setting that attracts musicians; Buddhists from the nearby monastery; travelers to the nearby Cape Breton Highlands...

A unique combination of folk art gallery, with works by the famous local artist, Willie Roach, combined with a fabulous little cafe. The cafe has scrumptious, home made pastries and great bread. And as a bonus, sometimes there is music by local musicians, saw a great fiddler a few weeks ago. The atmosphere is warm and very welcoming, we were... More

We dropped in for a quick visit on our way back from the Highlands and we stayed for more than an hour! Such a lovely spot with a warm welcome for all visitors. Be sure to visit the gallery that is curated with all local artwork, including the renowned William Roach! If you're lucky you might catch a glimpse of... More

Good coffee and friendly staff. Had fun with the children spotting the frogs in the pond. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

Super friendly people, very cool atmosphere, delicious coffee and baked goods! As West Coast coffee lovers, we were SO delighted to find espresso on the Cabot Trail and it lived up to our hopes. We went every day during our stay in Cheticamp.
