Spiced mushroom soup was great as was the sandwich we split. We took oatmeal bread for the road and ginger cookies. We highly recommend this spot (even though they won't give out recipes!)

Hmmm, loved the smell of coffee and bread when we walked in here. It's just a s mall cafe and bakery with fresh breads and pastries. Great atmosphere. We had an awesome breakfast and ordered some pastries to go. The staff were all friendly and smiling!

We've made special trips to this spot a number of times. It is such a hidden gem, but if you're going anywhere near it then you must stop in. Best coffee in Cape Breton, and the pancakes are incredible!

One of the places people rave about in Cape Breton, I had to go and give it a try. It is a very busy place, but service is efficient. The coffee is wonderful and the freshly baked treats are hard to resist. They specialise in sandwiches, which one can combine with a soup or salad. The menu has very good... More

Driving back home my eyes were attracted by mention "pannenkoeken". Somebody there is or Belgian or Dutch. Right, the owner is from The Netherlands. So we tried his Dutch style pancake which were tasty. We also had Belgian style waffles. A very nice surprise à long the road back from Cabot Trail!

Thanksgiving weekend - stopped for coffee- Had range of bakery products- everyone happy. I had scones -terrific flavour and texture (I should have asked them to be heated ,duh) Carried away much more to eat later. Crowded , but consider that part of the ambience. Can I suggest a simple latch on the bathroom door ? This is a destination... More
