Everyone raves their pastries and they do look yummy but I'm not supposed to eat them. I was very tempted, however particularly listening to the ladies at the next table! The roast beef in my sandwich was actually pink which is the way I like it & the horseradish mayo was very nice. The porridge bread was wonderfully fresh. My... More

Stopped here on our way through for a coffee. Got some fantastic baked goods and a delicious chicken sandwich. Great place to go.

By far the best food of our entire Nova Scotia vacation. We stopped here on a whim as we were headed out of Cape Breton. The place was crowded but efficient. My wife and I were a little shocked at the quality of the food. Absolutely wonderful.

If you want fried food, head somewhere else. Head almost anywhere else in the area actually. The Dancing Goat is fresh and local and good. We had the soup and the chicken sandwich (with almonds... unusual but very good). It's not cheap, but it's very reasonable for what you get. I'm pretty sure that I actually saw someone come out...

My husband and I tried this place for lunch one day. Our choices were limited, given that it is a bakery and we require gluten free. Despite that, my husband was able to get a bacon, tomato and avocado lettuce wrap which was an option for all their sandwiches. I had a salad with the tomato basil soup of the... More

After eating at a number of local places in the Baddeck area and Cape Breton in general, our tastebuds rejoiced at this culinary delight in a sea of terrible food. Great, fresh food with quality ingredients and wonderful bakery items--bread, cookies and pastries. All with excellent customer service! This is a difficult combination to find in Cape Breton, so a... More

From the coffee to the lemon cheesecake with raspberry coulis - it was all delish! We got there just before a large biking group hit and watched as staff handled the crowd calmly and with expertise. Everyone knew what they were supposed to be doing and they did it well. The woman on cash - perhaps owner or manager came... More

Read the Trip Advisor review & was not disappointed! Stopped in for lunch, my husband wasn't very hungry, so he had tomato basil soup with a biscuit - delicious! They have a wonderful variety of lunch choices. I had the egg salad sandwich that had chunks of bacon in it - also very good. Not to be forgotten is that... More
