We would eat lunch here every day if we could. The service is always friendly and welcoming, in French or English. They are often busy, but the servers do the best they can. The food has always been excellent when we have eaten there. The lentil soup, a little on the spicy curry side, is consistently delicious. The scallop ceviche... More

This is my favorite spot in the Maggies for clam chowder. It is served in a bread bowl which is excellent year after year. Good little restaurant for lunch after a nice walk on the "Grave". Don't miss the fish cake either.

Rustic style cafe located on chemin principal (or route 199) in Havre Aubert that came highly recommended by friends. Limited breakfast menu. We ordered their croissants with cheese and cretons (delicious) accompanied by excellent lattes. Service warm and efficient. Only wish that they opened earlier than 9AM. Excellent value.

Excellent lunch spot in La Grave. I had the cod cakes and my wife had the ham and cheese croissant. We also downed a few pints of the local brew.

This was the spot we choose for our last night. It's house in what appears to be an old fish shack which gives it great character. There is also an outside terrace overlooking the bay and sunsets. We sat beside a piano and ordered seal poutine and elk sausages. The poutine was huge! Desert was cheese cake which was also... More

Oh my Goodness! After eating at a total of 11 restaurants & cafés on Iles de la Madeleine over the past week, this wonderful café was by far our very favourite!! The two young women (in their 20's) who own this charming place have managed to create the perfect, inviting, relaxed ambiance that not only invites you to come in... More

Stopped in for lunch based on some review from Trip Advisor. The cafe has a great ambience and friendliness to it. I ordered a Ciabatta with veggie spread and salad. I finished lunch with a local blueberry cheesecake and coffee. My wife ordered a basic croissant ham and cheese with salad. She finished her lunch with a chocolate cake. The... More
