Great Coffee

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.

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

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.

Fantastic place ! Calm and relax spot next to a little pond. They always have some relaxing music sometime performed live by locals artists. Definitely a great stop for a coffee a blueberry muffin (omg !!!) or some croissants. And don't miss the art gallery where you can find lots of great piece of art !

Claudia, the proprietor of the Frog Pond Cafe, is from Germany. She was travelling through Canada when she met her now-husband, the son of Bill who is the featured artist at the Sunset Art Gallery that is right next to the Cafe. If you're lucky you'll meet a lovely man from the States who, like Claudia, found Cheticamp while on... More

I've lived in Cheticamp for a while and never tried this place until recently, and I was missing out! The coffee was great. Me and my friend sat on the deck that had a view of the pond, we loved watching the kitty cat exploring while we drank our coffee and chat. Such a relaxing spot, highly recommend!!

A nice stop for a refreshment and a look at the artwork. My daughter enjoyed watching for bull frogs in the pond. Great place for a little break!

We were really roughing it with instant coffee (!!!) up in Cape Breton - thank god for the Frog Pond Cafe! We made sure to stop there every day to fill up on caffeine, and were never disappointed.
