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.

What a great place to stop! Coffee, expresso, bakery were all first class! All the locals drop in so you know it is excellent. Nice homey atmosphere inside and outside seating. Don't let the gravel parking lot throw you off!

Beautiful, classy in the middle of nowhere. Great gluten free dessert. The coffee was delicious. The porridge bread divine. Margaree Valley is an overlooked beauty on the Cabot trail.

All by itself on the Cabot Trail is the Dancing Goat. Great baked good and the surprise hit is their porridge bread. So popular it is made tee twice daily and still sells out. Smooth textured with a hint of molasses. Excellent!!!! :-) :-) :-)! Also make the best espresso in Nova Scotia.

Excellent sandwiches, soups, and desserts! What an amazing cafe! Service was also very good! It is located along the Cabot Trail - very convenient. The only thing was that they ran out of bread that my husband had ordered - I can't remember the name.

Wrote a heartfelt glowing review last October. We live 2000 miles away, but are now just over the border in St. Andrews and the scones,the scones, are calling from in the glen. And down the mountain side I smell homemade soup and warm bread just out of the oven. O Dancing Goat we love you so.
