Wonderful food, simple restaurant. Can't go wrong! Across from the restaurant, anyone who enjoys photography will love that spot with all the boats and boat house.

My wife and I love the Finer Diner. It is our special place for breakfast....and where we invite special friends for a breakfast out. Food is always excellent.....love "the Usual" breakfast choice. Also Thursday dinner offers "Curry night" for a change from our usual fare. I would recommend the Finer Diner highly as a special place to dine with good... More

We had gone to Peggy's Cove and the local eateries are closed in winter so we went down the road to this little diner. Friendly staff, good food and nice local beers.

I eat here a few times a year for lunch. The food and service are always good. They often have a lunch special that isn't on the regular menu.

Server was very nice. Food was straight out of the fridge.... It was very cold with no flavour. Had the squash soup, smoked salmon with not-so-fresh cold sliced veggies. The salmon was served with sour cream?!?!? Not a great combination especially when there were no capers to liven it up. And I had the fish cakes with a side of... More

Our tour guide, Brian, shared one of his favorite restaurants with us, The Finer Diner. It was the perfect lunch spot. Great food, good atmosphere and excellent service. My husband and I had the lobster roll and it was delicious. After seeing Brian's fish and chips, my husband just had to order one and I was lucky enough to get... More

I was in Nova Scotia in August and I didn't realize that so many places close pretty early during the week. My husband and I tried to eat at Rhubard but the snooty hostess told us there was no way we could get a table. She did however recommend the Finer Diner, but they were also about to close. We...

Afterr an afternoon of driving the Lighthouse Route, the front porch of The Finer Diner was the perfect place for a casual dinner. I enjoyed the lobster roll and the sweet potato fries; my spouse had the fish chowder and aa simple garden salad. I wouldn't look here for a fancy dinner but it was perfect for what we needed....

This little gem of a diner was a wonderful surprise. We came here on the advise of our tour guide and we are so glad we did. The lobster club sandwich was the best thing we have ever had. Don't miss this place if your visiting the area!
