“Delicious food and fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I ate both a weekday lunch and a Sunday breakfast at the Kiwi Cafe in Chester. The food was very good and the staff friendly. When I went in on Sunday, there was live music (Jazzette). Not sure how often there is live music in the cafe, but it was a wonderful surprise. I would definitely eat at the Kiwi Cafe again.

“Delicious lobster rolls and other fresh food choices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Enjoyed a delicious lunch of fresh and tasty items at the Kiwi Cafe. Large selection of breakfast/brunch type items but the Lobster rolls were a big hit (they were the best Lobster rolls out of four we tasted while travelling in Nova Scotia). A must visit if you're in the Chester area!

I had a pear and brie sandwich here for lunch. Service was very good and the food was excellent. They were very helpful with local information and directions to attractions. Above average menu!

“Delicious food, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

The patio was full and the restaurant wasn't too far behind when we arrived - so we suspected there was a good reason for the rave reviews. We were not disappointed. Our group enjoyed several of the salads, lobster rolls, grilled cheese, smoothies and desserts. This was the perfect place to stop on our day trip along the coast. While it isn't fancy, we enjoyed the eclectic setting.

“Really Really Great Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

But also a nice place for brunch. The lobster roll sandwiches are some of the best, the Kiwi burrito is a big hit and the selection of desserts are always good. You will find everyone from every walk of life in Chester here at some point during the day in each summer.
