Delicious baked goods

We stopped here for breakfast on our way from Charlottetown to Prince Edward Island National Park. It's a wonderful find. The baked goods are delicious, and we enjoyed our breakfast, as well: French toast made with their own baked bread. Yummy!

I'm always on the search for a good fish and chips meal. Heard about this place and their $10.99 fresh fish and chips every day. It's a bakery/Cafe. Service was good, meal was best I've had on the Island. Large piece of crispy, lightly battered haddock ( just a bit over cooked) served with large order of fries, fresh bakery... More

I live in the area and am there quite a bit. The good is good, prices are excellent and the staff is very friendly. I feel so lucky that this place is just down the road.

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

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!

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!
