Veggie burger to die for

their veggie burger is the best I've had anywhere in Nova Scotia, I order it every time we visit Chester. Would recommend reservations as it gets busy quickly.

Visited here on a Saturday afternoon for dessert and tea. Beautiful experience. We are big tea drinkers and this cafe has tons of teas. Fabulous. The homemade blondies were fresh and tasty, with a little dollop of cream. The atmosphere was such we wanted to stay for hours (but didn't). Place has a very interesting story of a New Zealander...

My fiance and I were in Chester for a wedding and popped in for breakfast one morning. The food was really good and the portions were large. I had eggs over easy, bacon, LaHave Bakery Toast and a side of home fries... if you get the home fries the plate is HUGE and there is no need for each person... More

Loved the coffee and the nice girls serving it. You know a good place when you see the locals in there and the locals looked pretty good.

The Kiwi is a great place for coffee and food with the added bonus of free internet ! We visited many times on our recent vacation to the South Shore.

Nice selection of casual food, well prepared but a little pricey for a neighborhood cafe. Indoor and outdoor seating.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch on the deck. We had Thai chicken wraps, Curry pear and Apple Soup and a Peanut Butter Brownie. The service, food and atmosphere were great. My daughter was thrilled that dogs were allowed on the deck! We certainly will return and recommend.

If you are in Chester, I highly recommend a stop at the Kiwi Cafe. The seafood chowder was some of the best I have had. Lots of seafood and a most delicious cream base. Yum! The pastries and desserts are excellent. The staff was great. Don't miss this one.

The food was prepared perfect with its own little fair added... More
