We went here twice while we were exploring. The food and baked goods were delicious. Wish we could have brought some home with us!

Can't rave enough about their baked goods! Mud pies and scones were heavenly. I took a goodly supply home to the mainland with me. The soup we have for lunch was delicious as well - homemade and imaginative. Busy place - and I understand why.

This is a stop on our golf trip every year. We always go in and get breakfast before we head up to Ingonish. Simple breakfasts, the price is a little rich, but it is high quality food and great coffee.
