“Don't Miss This Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Try a fresh baked scone or mouth watering dessert, paired with the best coffee for miles. Atmosphere is charming. Don't forget to take home some fresh baking for later.

“Coffee and bakery Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

What a great place to stop! Coffee, expresso, bakery were all first class! All the locals drop in so you know it is excellent. Nice homey atmosphere inside and outside seating. Don't let the gravel parking lot throw you off!

“Must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Beautiful, classy in the middle of nowhere. Great gluten free dessert. The coffee was delicious. The porridge bread divine. Margaree Valley is an overlooked beauty on the Cabot trail.

“Outstanding Baked Goods-Must Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

All by itself on the Cabot Trail is the Dancing Goat. Great baked good and the surprise hit is their porridge bread. So popular it is made tee twice daily and still sells out. Smooth textured with a hint of molasses. Excellent!!!! :-) :-) :-)! Also make the best espresso in Nova Scotia.

“A place I would come back to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Excellent sandwiches, soups, and desserts! What an amazing cafe! Service was also very good! It is located along the Cabot Trail - very convenient. The only thing was that they ran out of bread that my husband had ordered - I can't remember the name.
