This is a tiny place in Sydney to eat and it's mostly sandwiches, etc. The only saving grace in the summer time it has is that it adds a veranda to it's location on the road side and that is a nice touch, but to eat in, it's very tiny and there's no privacy.

The food was amazing. I had the special, Cecil Clarke nachos, which were wonderful. We splurged for dessert and had the ice cream sandwich, decadent! I never would have expected such good food here in this small town. There are several Flavor establishments, we ate here because it was cheaper than the one at the Pavilion.

We went to this cafe after getting no service across the street. The service was quick and friendly and the seafood chowder was great! A positive experience.

It must be three years since we were here and the standard was just as high with friendly helpful staff and a menu small enough so that food is great every time and made from locally sourced suppliers. Let's see what is will be like three years from now.

On a busy Friday night I was needing food, everywhere seemed full. This place was too and the customer vibe seemed good. Initially I was told by the lady that there were no tables; I was dismissed. I offered to wait awhile and was then told it would be at least ten minutes (is that all). Another solo chap arrived... More

Best wrap I ever had ! Still...atmosphere was a bit cold, for a small cozy place! Little hiccups here and there.

We stopped here for lunch and it was probably the best lunch we had in Cape Breton. The soups and salads were fresh, modern, and very tasty. This is a small casual spot, with very nice staff and terrific food!

We stumbled upon Flavor by chance. One of us is celiac. The other is a vegetarian. Flavor gave us both what we needed: fresh vegetables and hearty soups. If you are in Sydney and are looking for something sophisticated and refreshing in a comfortable atmosphere, I suggest you go to Flavor.

My wife, daughters ages 12 and 10, and I dined at Flavor Downtown (not the larger Flavor restaurant next to the Big Fiddle) on Pitt Street. We found the food to be very good for the price point and the service to be extremely warm and friendly (this is a Nova Scotian trait). I’d recommend dining at Flavor Downtown if... More

Stopped in based on the reviews. We had two of their specialty sandwiches from a menu that designates a portion of each to a different charity for each sandwich. My wife had a turkey and scalloped potatoes on Tuscany bread sandwich that she described as "Easter in a bun". I had the Messy Nessy that lived up to its name;... More
