Good Experience

We enjoyed a very good lunch on the deck here. The staff was congenial and efficient. The server continually checked up upon us and made us feel welcome. The bill was fair. We would not hesitate to stop here again. Well done!

I had guests with me during the of-season for tourists and we needed to find a place to eat in the major tourist region of PEI. It was one of those situations, "What to do? What to do?". This little spot popped into my mind, and with really no alternative, took my guests there. Thank good ness we popped in... More

Food was not fresh. Soup was terribly thick. As the waitress said, "It gets like that when it sits around all day". Sandwiches were horrible. Very dirty floors etc. Will not go back.

On the road and we needed something to tie us over until lunch. We bought baked goods and coffee. Cinnamon buns are biscuit type, and very good and fresh. Cookies were good too. Baking on site and fresh. Seems like a busy diner. We did not eat in, but if I needed an all day breakfast place, this would suit.... More

Breakfast here was disappointing. We had stopped by earlier and picked up some delicious cookies and made a special trip for breakfast. My "over-easy" fried eggs were medium at best, and the sausage I ordered with it was more like a hot dog. Orange juice came in a can. We won't be back.

Very wonderful and the owner was great!! Ate there several days in a row for breakfast. Would eat there every day if I lived nearby. Reasonable prices and the Cinnamon Rolls were delicious!

Coffee and muffin was very good [and they do offer de Caff]. they also do breakfast all day.Very big Menu and they serve a "lunch special" daily. Only a very small seating area inside but have a large veranda when weather permits.

This cute and charming little café eatery and bakery is just a short 100 yards/meters from the junction of highway 2 and route 13. Turn north on 13 and voilà! You're there. Situated right above the little tidal river (hence the name) parking can be a bit dicey especially at lunch time or fine summer days, but once you find... More

Hello biased opinion here but from a previous review I would like to set strait that the "proprietor" is not the "Yorkshire" woman who is actually just a waitress . But the business is actually owed and ran by a Chinese woman who has owned it for over 4 years now. And we try and better our selfs everyday. I... More

While cycling on the confederation trail we had stopped by for lunch. This place was quite busy and had people coming and going all the time. Which to us was a message that it was the place to eat. My wife ordered the seafood chowder, and I had the soup of the day which was a tomato curry. Both of... More
