Description: We are small ocean side restaurant, with friendly staff and honest, delicious food. We use as local as we can and make the majority of our products in house including our ricotta, soups and salad dressings. We smoke our Salmon, Beef Ribs and Pork Loin. We are dedicated to providing our customers with unique menu items they aren't likely to find in any other restaurant with an experience as one of a kind as well!

“Diners sit up and take notice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Hope Bay Cafe is under new ownership and the brilliant chef/owner knows how to make the palate sing! I tried the house smoked beef ribs with cocoa Cabernet sauce, which will kick into the taste memory part of my brain for years to come. The idyllic location on the water with islands receding into the horizon is now matched by the cuisine. The full moon reflecting over the water greatly enhanced the ambiance - but I'm told that seals can often be seen cavorting in the day time.

“Really comfortable atmosphere with great food and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012 via mobile

The restuarant is only 3 days old having been taken over by a previous owner. It has great views of the ocean and the wait staff is friendly and attentive. The Cabernet cocoa smoked ribs were awesome!!!!

“Could be a perfect place for dinner.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Very good location but a very simple and small menu, the food was not satisfying. May improve with the recent change of the owner.
