“The Brilliant Bacon Cheese Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

During a quick trip through Parsboro our family stopped at the Porchlight Restaurant for a quick bite to eat. My dad and brother got their bacon cheeseburger, and they claimed it was the best bcb they've ever had, in fact so good they ordered one to split for dessert!! On our way back home we went out of our way to stop back in and have their amazing bacon cheese burgers. The owners were amazing and so friendly!! Overall it was an amazing experience, and it would be worth a trip back out there just for those bacon cheeseburgers.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

My family and I spent the day in Parrsboro, and decided to try out this little spot. It turned out to be a total gem! The fish and chips were to die for - so fresh, and perfectly cooked! One of our party had the Sloppy Moppy Sandwich, which is absolutely loved - he raved about the combination of flavours. Another had a burger with jalapeno and cheddar, which he thought was great - homemade, good quality ingredients, and well prepared.

The service was a cut above, truly. We were served by the owners of the restaurant, who chatted with us about various topics, from Parrsboro attractions to daily life - the whole place had such a great homey feel to it, as if walking into a friend's home for dinner.

We will be bringing our visiting family to this lovely little spot when they visit later this summer, and are already looking forward to it!

“Really nice people and good homebaked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stopped off at Parrsboro during our 2 week drive around Nova Scotia and found this little gem. It is a really small place, but is currently being extended. The burgers we had were proper home cooked burgers. The service was excellent, we had such a good laugh and conversation with the lady who served us. I'm so pleased to have found this place on tripadvisor as it is somewhere that could easily be overlooked when driving past, but really is worth stopping at.

“Amazing Calamari and overall experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

You must try the Calamari at this place! The Burgers were amazing, the menu selection is good, food was very tasty, we almost came back for a second time (a 40 min drive) just to have more of their food. Almost all ingredients are made in the kitchen and the restaurant is locally owned. Go eat there, support local economy and get a pint of Keith's. Will come back!
