The Black Spoon B&B first I must tell you I did not experience a sleepover. So little time in NS so many excellent places to stay. What the Black Spoon has is great food and bold coffee. They have a view. You can pick up fresh flowers and spa items such as bath bombs, soaps & essential oils. You will...

Was speaking with someone at the cell number. B&B no longer offers rooms. Just a cafe now with a few local stores. Website should be taken down, or updated. Bistro still operational. Really too bad!!!

We can't ever imagine taking the ferry from North Sydney and not spending the night at the Black Spoon B & B...Monica and Mike make the stay so wonderful...not to mention the superb dinner at the Black Spoon Bistro...if you are planning a crossing leaving on the 1145 AM ferry...this is a must stay place

Staying here before boarding ferry next day. Host was very attentive. Room was very clean, always my most important issue. She also runs a bistro, within walking distance. You walk through the ferry parking area where the people are lining up their cars to board the ferry. Arrive at the security entrance, then the guard walks you to the opposite...

After a long 10hr drive from NB, we arrived in beautiful North Sydney at our destination. Upon our arrival, Monica was so delightful with a huge smile and welcomed us. She provided us with some useful information and we had a great chat! We had a late dinner at the Black Spoon Bistro and closed shop. It was especially delicious!!...

I was shocked walking into the rooms at how nicely they are done up. It's like a high class hotel each room a different design. The owners are so welcoming and accommodative. In our group we had a food allergy and they took great care with that. And the food they made was some of the best food I have...

If you are rounding the Cabot Tail or just exploring northeastern Cape Breton, the Black Spoon B&B is an excellent headquarters for your adventures. Monica and Michael are gracious hosts and see to your food, accommodation and information needs (e.g restaurants, churches, maps, etc.). The two talented hosts also run the Black Spoon Bistro nearby for your dining out needs....

Arriving later than expected by the host & ourselves on a typically rainy cold Oct. night we were warmly welcomed by Mike. Our room was a reflection of the owners; warm & comfortable. The bed linens of exceptional calibre, a solid comfortable bed, flawlessly clean room. We loved the dining area; the view alone is worth eating here. Our hostess,...

We would make the trip from Oregon to Nova Scotia again JUST to spend a few nights at the Black Spoon. The breakfast was fabulous (and don't forget to go the the Black Spoon Bistro, you can walk there!) Very comfortable bed, bathroom w/grab bars which many of us retired travelers like! Owners and staff were like family to us!...
