We go to the Justamere quite often especially for brunch and lunch. We have always been treated well by staff and cannot say that we have had a bad meal ever.

We had a delightful mid afternoon lunch while on vacation. Service was prompt and polite. We ordered the curry mussels, fish cakes and seafood chowder. Prices were very reasonable and food was delicious, the only thing missing was the sauce for the fishcakes. We will definitely be back.

We had dinner one night then breakfast next day. Food was great, servers were pleasant & helpful when I couldn't decide what I wanted. This cafe is the best thing about the Claymore Hotel.

It was a busy place when we were there! Sunday at noon Highland Games Week. I ordered their Roasted Veggie Sandwich and my niece had the Turkey Mango Sandwich. We split both! The food was oh so tasty.... I really loved both. The only draw back was the VERY long wait between ordering and getting our food. I will accommodate... More

Lovely little stop we found on Trip Advisor. Then, recognized it from our last time through Nova Scotia! There is a patio, but it above 80 degrees right now, so the AC feels good.

Touring on our way to Cape Breton Island with my 16 year old daughter, we chose Justamere (based on Trip Advisor reviews) for all-day breakfast. First impressions and average-looking menu aside,we couldn't get over the quality ingredients in our eggs benedicts. Even the homefry potatoes were delicious! The portions and presentation were not so impressive at first either , BUT...... More

This is a nice place in a beautiful little town. The restaurant was clean. It was full of people for lunch, which was a good sign. We waited about ten minutes for a table and then another 15 to order and then at least 45 more to get our food (nothing complicated). The good news is that the food was... More
