The sandwich we had was decent, but we were looking forward to their pasta from the reviews. It is only available for dinner. Service was a little slow, but it was friendly and ingredients appeared very fresh. Although there are not a lot of choices in this area, we would try someplace else next time. We use Trip Advisor for... More

This is a quaint little coffee shop, so we were surprised to see the wide variety the menu offered. We stopped for breakfast and I had the lightest waffle ever, topped not with some thawed strawberries, but with fresh watermelon, apples, cantaloupe,...can't even remember all the fresh fruit, along with freshly whipped cream. They have live music occasionally, and offer... More

We had pasta. It was amazing. Home made as they claimed and just delicious. The arrabiata is very spicy but just the way we like! Probably one of the best pasta we've ever had.

We were told about this restaurant by a local Alma merchant and dined the night we arrived in Alma after a long drive from Boston (yes, were road trippers). We were told to expect a interesting food and were surprised when the menu was placed before us and there were only vegetarian options and only a handful of those. After... More

Don't expect much from this restaurant in terms of looks. It's very modest. I'd almost go as far as to describe it as like being in someones dining room. But that's exactly the appeal. Everything feels very homemade and fresh and the staff make you feel right at home. The food was delicious, the only problem was that I'm pretty... More

We enjoyed a wonderful steamy bowl of homemade tomato soup and sandwich fixings from Octopus Garden while on our day trip to Fundy National Park to Swim with the Salmon. So very very good!

We stopped for lunch, the thing I wanted on the menu was not available. My husband ordered a Italian sandwich that claimed to have prosciutto, none was found. All we tasted from that sandwich was vinegar?!?!? I had the Chilli well it was underwhelming. I've heard so many great things about this place, it was nicely decorated but FULL of... More

We stopped here for breakfast when we were heading from Fund National Park to Halifax. We were two adults, two kids. The staff were super friendly, it was very close to the national park and it was DELICIOUS. Everything was fresh made and was incredible. The eggs benedict was the best I have EVER had. If you are camping but... More

Two meals here, both splendid. A perfect GF Italian panini with the right amounts of cheese/meat, and a glorious "classic " breakfast with local eggs and bacon, and GF toast. Also had a pb & chocolate square (nice) and a GF cookie (hearty). Brewed coffee was hot, fresh and not at all thin. Service was very good with both evening... More

I read such glowing reviews on TripAdvisor for this restaurant so we stopped in for lunch while in Alma. I was disappointed to discover the pasta is dinner only. I did not read this in my reviews prior to eating there, hence my title. Don’t make the same mistake if you are looking to try their pasta dishes. We stayed... More
