This local Cheticamp cafe serves coffee, tea, sandwiches, panini, soup, salads, and pastries from early morning to mid afternoon. They are not open for dinner but they have a large seating area overlooking Cheticamp Harbour.

Usually a club sandwich with fries in this part of the world are a treat: fresh baked bread, fresh turkey slices, really good bacon, and great fries. This was the exception. My fries were over cooked as was everyone else's. My sandwich was very ordinary. My spouses salad was just ok. Thinking perhaps they just had had an off day,... More

Hi, It is disappointing that you did not enjoy your experience at Hometown Kitchen. We use nothing but Homemade bread, real Turkey (all white meat) and bacon and home cut fries. I apologize that the fries were over cooked and will address that with the kitchen staff. I thank you for giving it a second try! cheers Michele More

Stopped here for breakfast on a Saturday and was impressed by the quick service, very good prices (especially in a tourist haven) and the excellent homestyle food.

Their seafood chowder is excellent but we've really enjoyed everything we've tried (3 visits to Cape Breton so far and every time we make a point to stop here). The wait staff are friendly and helpful and you can dine with a view both inside and out. Highly recommend this place!

what a sweet little place. nothing fancy - just good food in a comfie atmosphere. they had great fish and chips. in addition, they make a mean chicken caesar salad - bacon is a nice addition.

Stopped at sunset on an unplanned drive, and not only had wonderful fresh lobster and crab, but also received friendly assistance to help us find accommodations that night. Cindy called around for us to check if any local hotels had vacancies, and recommended the newly opened Cornerstone Motel, which was beautiful, clean and quiet by the park.

Thanks for your kind words and we are very fortunate to be in a location where the sun sets directly across from our patio in the summer months. We have great staff ready to help in any situation as well! Hope to see you again soon! Michele More

Our host at our B&B recommended the pan-fried cod here, and it was wonderful. Fresh, most, delicately textured, with a perfect light batter. We had four large pieces with cole slaw and baked potato for $15.

We visited the Canadian Atlantic Provinces in June and July of this year. Being from South Louisiana, it was sometimes difficult to find a restaurant with food as good as we are used to. Hometown Kitchen was the first really good, well-seasoned fresh food we discovered on our trip! From the Lobster Dip to the coffee, we LOVED it. Excellent... More
