Great coffee!!

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.

I LOVE my local café, the Frogpond. My daughters and I were there almost every day last summer and we cannot wait for opening weekend , the last weekend in May. The baker specializes in sourdough bread and German pastries. It is so hard to choose! This place is a favourite with locals and tourists alike. There is a real... More

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...
