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

We stopped in on the way to the beach. I hadn't heard of this spot before. The food was great and extremely fresh. The blueberry Tart was to die for and the bread was hot out of the oven. I would recommend this spot to any of my friends and family travelling through. On the down side the parking lot... More

This is one of those must visit places when we come to Cape Breton. The soup and sandwiches are great and the desserts a "slice of heaven". I had roasted squash and corn soup and it was the best I have ever tasted. With it I had half a sandwich with bacon and avocado and it was very tasty with... More

Great coffee and service with a smile. Baked goods are delicious and fresh daily.. You will not be able to leave without buying something to take home for later

Try a fresh baked scone or mouth watering dessert, paired with the best coffee for miles. Atmosphere is charming. Don't forget to take home some fresh baking for later.
