The owner of the inn we were staying at suggested a few dining spots for us to try out....we are so glad we chose the Fountain Café! I agree with many other TA reviewers, that this cozy little eating establishment is more of a "bistro than a café! We loved the atmosphere and quaintness of the FC! We dined early... More

Don't let the outside signage fool you, this is a quaint bistro situated in a heritage-style building off the main strip. The bistro(cafe) is small but cozy (maybe 8-9 tables). We dropped in for lunch. Everything on the menu looked great. We settled for the Turkey Reuben and the Salmon Burger. Both dishes were very tasty (only downside, turkey, regardless... More

We have eaten here a lot, and the food is always amazing. The food is not the only thing that makes a restaurant. The service is awesome too!

Elegant yet casual. Fresh foods cooked to perfection - or raw. This restaurant caters to all with excellence.

This wee restaurant was very busy the night we went for dinner. We hadn't made a reservation and were lucky to get in. I would recommend making a reservation! The building is heritage and looks as though it could have originally been built as a house in the early 1900's. It's a block off the main shopping street (Water Street)... More

Most of my meals here have been great. The small tables make for a cozy environment, though it can be really noisy. Go for the warmed spinach salad and gingerbread for a treat on a cool, windy night.

Read a review of the Fountain Cafe on Trip Advisor and we were treated to some excellent food. Very small, too small tables but great service. Would definitely return on another visit.

We had a very nice lunch in this cute, small restaurant. We had an excellent fresh clam chowder, Salmon burger, and salad. The service was very good, with the waitress suggesting a nice wine by the glass. The kitchen staff was visible through the open kitchen, and Chef was quite nice and friendly to talk to. It seems that this... More

Small place, go a bit early or be prepared to wait a short time. Our B & B hosts called ahead and made reservations. Servers were friendly and the food was out of this world delicious.
