This is a little cafe right across from the fort. The food was good and not expensive. Good spot for families. Not noisy.

The chocolate milkshake is thick and made with rich chocolate ice cream. A nice medium size cafe in the center of Annapolis Royal.

After checking out two other places in town (ridiculously expensive, too loud, horrible Wi-Fi) we settled here, exhausted after driving, thirsty, and desperate to check e-mail for news of our sick cat. The waiter/manager/great guy let me check to make sure I was connected before we ordered, educated me about why frozen scallops are better, brought icy cold sodas fast,... More

This is exactly what you think it would be - diner food in a little place popular with locals. The food was good and the prices reasonable. We were there for breakfast.

The menu is typical for a small town and is "home cooked" style in nature. A nice little cafe to get a quick lunch (soup, sandwiches, coffee),... More

A favourite place of ours in Annapolis. Super value for good, wholesome, well cooked food. A particular favourite here are the fantastic milk shakes. So thick the straw stands up in then down to the last inch. Love the place and can't wait 'til we return next year.

A convenient place for casual dining while downtown . Hours of service were limited. Building dated but seemed clean. Waitress was especially friendly.

Decent breakfast for a decent price. Location is excellent in downtown Annapolis Royal. Restaurant seemed to be favoured by local residents which is usually a good sign. Waitress was friendly but food really was pretty average but was decently priced
